Forty-eight (48) Power over Ethernet PoE+ ports, 30W max per prot, total PoE budget of 370W. Simple-to-use graphical interfaces reduce the time required to deploy, troubleshoot, and manage the network and allow you to support sophisticated capabilities without increasing IT head count. You can manage the switches as individual devices or use Cisco Configuration Assistant (CCA) to discover, configure, and manage all Cisco devices in the network. The switches also support Textview, a full command-line interface (CLI) option for partners that prefer it.Using Auto Smartports intelligence, the switch can detect a network device connected to any port and automatically configure the optimal security, quality of service (QoS), and availability on that port. Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) discovers Cisco devices and allows devices to share critical configuration information, simplifying network setup and integration. Support for Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows you to set up and manage your switches and other Cisco devices remotely from a network management station, improving IT workflow and mass configurations.

High-Power Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+). This Cisco SG500-52P Switch supports the Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) standard (IEEE 802. At), providing up to 30 watts per port. The power is managed in a smart fashion such that only the amount of power the endpoint needs is delivered to it and not wasted.
As a result, the switches can support devices that require more power, such as dual-band 802.11n wireless access points, video-based IP phones, surveillance cameras, and more. PoE capabilities simplify the deployment of advanced technologies by allowing you to connect and power network endpoints over a single Ethernet cable, without having to install separate power supplies. Cisco 500 Series switches are also fully backwards compatible with IEEE 802.11af PoE and previous-generation Cisco legacy PoE protocols. The Cisco SG500-52P Switch helps optimise your IT operations with built-in features that simplify and streamline day-to-day network operation.True stacking allows you to troubleshoot, configure, and manage multiple physical switches as a single entity. Unlike other stacking switches that require uniform configurations, this Cisco SG500-52P allows you to mix Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet models in a single stack, providing total flexibility without sacrificing manageability.
Cisco switches use common chipsets/software across all switching portfolios, so all Cisco switches within a category support the same feature set - making it easier to manage and support all switches across the network. Some switches claim to support stacking but in practice support only "clustering" - meaning that each switch must still be managed and configured individually.
Cisco SG500-52P switches provide true stacking capability, allowing you to configure, manage, and troubleshoot all switches in a stack as a single unit, with a single IP address. A true stack delivers a unified data and control plane, in addition to management plane, providing flexibility, scalability, and ease of use since the stack of units operate as a single entity constituting all the ports of the stack members. This capability can radically reduce complexity in a growing network environment while improving the resiliency and availability of network applications. True stacking also provides other cost savings and administrative benefits through features such as cross-stack QoS, VLANs, and port mirroring, which clustered switches can't support.
Using a combination of CDP, LLDP-MED, Auto Smartports, and VSDP (Voice Services Discovery Protocol - a unique Cisco protocol), customers can deploy an end-to-end voice network dynamically. The switches in the network automatically converge around a single voice VLAN and QoS parameters and then propagate them out to the phones on the ports where they are discovered.
The switch automatically configures the device with the right VLAN and QoS parameters to prioritise voice traffic. As the IP address scheme evolves to accommodate a growing number of network devices, the Cisco SG500-52P Switch can support the transition to the next generation of networking and operating systems such as Windows 7, Vista, and Linux. These switches continue to support previous-generation IPv4, allowing you to evolve to the new IPv6 standard at your own pace, and helping ensure that your current network will continue to support your business applications in the future.Cisco 500 Series switches have successfully completed rigorous IPv6 testing and have received the USGv6 and IPv6 Gold certification. Advanced Layer 3 Traffic Management. The Cisco SG500-52P Switch enables a more advanced set of traffic management capabilities to help growing businesses organise their networks more effectively and efficiently. For example, the switches provide static LAN Layer 3 routing, allowing you to segment your network into workgroups and communicate across VLANs without degrading application performance. This Cisco SG500-52P and all Cisco 500 series switches integrate a variety of power-saving features across all models, providing the industry's most extensive energy-efficient switching portfolio. These switches are designed to conserve energy by optimising power use, which helps protects the environment and reduce your energy costs. They provide an eco-friendly network solution without compromising performance. Cisco 500 Series switches feature. Support for the Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) standard, which reduces energy consumption by monitoring the amount of traffic on an active link and putting the link into a sleep state during quiet periods. The latest application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), which use low-power 65-nanometer technology and low power high performance ARM CPUs.
