As your business grows, the network needs to grow with it. So, that your employees can do more, so that your customers can connect with you more easily, then you can focus on your business not on your network. Even in a small deployment you want to know that the equipment is going to deliver connectivity without leaving you with a bunch of headaches. The Cisco Catalyst 1000 series is great for when you don’t run all the bells and whistles, but you still want to know what is going to work and keep working. The Cisco Catalyst 1000 series is ideal for retail, schools, bank branches, health clinics, virtually any setting where you need to ensure the secure flow of information. The compact fan-less design and improved reliability mean it can hide in plain sight without disturbing the environment. Simple, flexible and secure the Cisco Catalyst 1000 series switches deliver enterprise grade quality at the right price for small deployments.

Currently, two configuration options are available for these switches. First model of these switches is a smart managed switch which has a base built-in web user interface GUI running Cisco configuration professional onboard, and also, in another model, the option with full web GUI plus the addition of a command-line interface from a console port is available. Moreover, the council functionality with these devices can be extended via Bluetooth. You can add a Bluetooth adapter and you can connect to your Catalyst 1K devices over a Bluetooth pairing link. Both models support a command-line interface just the smart managed switch is only there for show commands and you can only verify the configuration. On the full command line capable version, you will get the full ability to configure the switch from a CLI level if you choose to use that and/or the web interface is built-in as well.
