Q & A

Cisco Catalyst


Series Switches

Product Overview


What are the Cisco




3750 Switches?


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

Web browser.

Cisco CMS Software provides new configuration wizards that greatly simplify the

implementation of converged applications and networkwide services.

Table 1 shows the complete list of Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series Intelligent Ethernet Switches.
