The Cisco Catalyst Series increases availability for stackable switches. Each switch can operate as both a master controller and a forwarding processor. Each switch in the stack can serve as a master, creating a 1:N availability scheme for network control. In the unlikely event of a single unit failure, all other units continue to forward traffic and maintain operation. With Cisco StackWise technology, the Cisco Catalyst Series offers greater efficiency for multicast applications such as video.
Each data packet is put onto the backplane only once, which provides more effective support for more data streams. The Cisco Catalyst E and Series offer Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet speed with intelligent services that keep everything flowing smoothly, even at 10 times the normal network speed.
Mechanisms for marking, classification, and scheduling deliver best-in-class performance for data, voice, and video traffic, all at wire speed. Return on Investment Through Lower Operations Costs The automatic Cisco IOS Software version checking and loading of the global configuration parameters provide the first level of operational time-saving.
The second level is added during the event of an outage. Superior Quality of Service Across the Stack and at Wire Speed The Cisco Catalyst E and Series offer Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet speed with intelligent services that keep everything flowing smoothly, even at 10 times the normal network speed.

Embedded spaces are not allowed in SNMP community strings. In the System Location field, enter the wiring closet, floor, or building where the switch is located. Step 15 Click Submit to save your settings, or click Cancel to clear your settings. When you click Submit , the switch is configured and exits Express Setup mode.
The PC displays a warning message and then tries to connect with the new switch IP address. If you configured the switch with an IP address that is in a different subnet from the PC, connectivity between the PC and the switch is lost.
Step 16 Disconnect the switch from the PC, and install the switch in your network. After you complete Express Setup and install the switch in your network, use the device manager or other management options described in this section for further configuration.
The simplest way to manage the switch is by using the device manager that is in the switch memory. This is an easy-to-use web interface that offers quick configuration and monitoring.
