CSS610-8P-2S+IN is one of the most well-rounded switches on the market. It is a perfect fit for the most diverse setups: from home networks and small offices to hotels, call centers and so on. The unique combination of size, features, and price offers unbelievable scalability potential.
There are two SFP+ ports for 10 Gigabit fiber connectivity and eight Gigabit Ethernet ports with 802.3af/at and passive PoE-out (you only need a single PSU to provide both).
This switch is all about nice and easy setups. The compact form-factor means easier shipping and handling, while the lightweight SwOS means easier configuration. You can even configure this switch from your web browser! It gives you all the core functionality of a managed switch, and even more: you can manage port-to-port forwarding, broadcast storm control, apply MAC filters, configure VLANs, mirror traffic, apply bandwidth limitations, and even adjust some MAC and IP header fields.
But the real blessing is the combination of SFP+ and PoE-out Ethernet ports. With this setup, you can do all kinds of things on a tight budget. CSS610 has an impressive total PoE-out budget of 140 W, so you can use even in the most intense scenarios – like hotels, conference halls, or call centers! Use the PoE-out ports to connect the IP-phones while the SFP+ ports connect your primary server to the ISP. Or power a bunch of network cameras and instantly upload the footage to the cloud. And manage a cluster of wireless access points at the same time. Also, scalability is no longer a problem.
