Cisco’s Multigigabit technology enables intermediate data rates of 2.5 and 5 Gigabit per second to ease the jump between traditional rates of one Gigabit per second and 10 Gigabit per second. these intermediate rates run on most installed cables preserving all the UTP wiring. the technology also supports power over ethernet forms including PoE+ and 60-watt PoE.

Cisco MultiGigabit Ethernet switches reduce the need of having to run multiple cables between switches and access points and allows your network to welcome next-generation traffic speeds and data rates. They also offer layer 3 features, advanced security and a highly efficient bottom line both fast ethernet and gigabit ethernet models that are available and all products.

Moreover, Cisco Multigigabit technology supports auto-negotiation of multiple speeds on switch ports. The supported speeds are 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, and 5 Gbps on Cat 5e cable and up to 10 Gbps over Cat 6a cabling and also provides important value for customers and partners as it protects existing investments such as cabling and connectors.

With the expected growth of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and the widely deployed 802.11ac and new wireless applications, wireless devices are driving the demand for more network bandwidth. It demands a technology that handles speeds higher than 1 Gbps on all cabling infrastructure.

Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit technology allows enterprises to easily prepare their networks for the five-fold increase in wireless bandwidth from 11ac Wave 1 to Wave 2. It addresses the common challenges they will face when upgrading their networks for 802.11ac Wave 2. It also provides Tremendous cost savings for customers migrating to Wave 2.

The technology enables existing Catalyst access switches such as, Catalyst 3850 Multigigabit models can be stacked with existing 1G Copper and 1G Fiber models. Similarly, the Multigigabit line card for Catalyst 4500E works with existing Supervisor Engines 8-E, 7-E and 7-LE.

Cisco Multigigabit technology is supported by the Cisco Catalyst 9000 switching family (Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series, Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series), Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series, Cisco Catalyst 3850/3650 Series, Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX Series, Cisco Catalyst Digital Building Series, Cisco 350 Series, and Meraki® MS350 Series product families.
