Q & A
What are the Cisco
The Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series switches are a premier line of enterprise-class, stackable,
multilayer switches that provide high availability, security, and quality of service (QoS) to
enhance the operation of the network. Its innovative unified stack management raises the bar
in stack management, redundancy, and failover.
With a range of Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet configurations, the Cisco Catalyst 3750
Series can serve as both a powerful access layer switch for medium enterprise wiring closets
and as a backbone switch for mid-sized networks. Customers can deploy networkwide
intelligent services, such as advanced QoS, rate-limiting, Cisco security access control lists
(ACLs), multicast management, and high-performance IP routing—while maintaining the
simplicity of traditional LAN switching. Embedded in the Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series is the
Cisco Cluster Management Suite (CMS) Software, which allows users to simultaneously
configure and troubleshoot multiple Cisco Catalyst desktop switches using a standard
Cisco CMS Software provides new configuration wizards that greatly simplify the
implementation of converged applications and networkwide services.
