Easy-to-Use Managed Switches That Provide the Ideal Combination
of Features and Affordability
To stay ahead in a competitive marketplace, businesses need to make
every dollar count. That means getting the most value from your
technology investments, but it also means making sure that
employees have fast, reliable access to the business tools and
information they need. Every minute an employee waits for an
unresponsive application and every minute your network is down has
an effect on your profits. The importance of maintaining a strong
and dependable business network only grows as your business adds
more employees, applications, and network complexity.
When your business needs advanced security and features but value
is still a top consideration, you’re ready for the new generation

High Reliability and Resiliency
In a growing business where availability 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week is critical, you need to assure that employees can always
access the data and resources they need. The Cisco 350 Series
supports dual images, allowing you to perform software upgrades
without having to take the network offline or worry about the
network going down during the upgrade.
Cisco 350 Series switches provide the advanced security features
you need to protect your business data and keep unauthorized users
off the network:
- Embedded Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption protects
management data traveling to and from the switch.
- Extensive access control lists (ACLs) restrict sensitive portions
of the network to keep out unauthorized users and guard against
- Guest VLANs let you provide Internet connectivity to nonemployee
users while isolating critical business services from guest
- Support for advanced network security applications such as IEEE
802.1X port security tightly limits access to specific segments of
your network. Web-based authentication provides a consistent
interface to authenticate all types of host devices and operating
systems, without the complexity of deploying IEEE 802.1X clients on
- Advanced defense mechanisms, including dynamic Address Resolution
Protocol (ARP) inspection, IP Source Guard, and Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) snooping, detect and block deliberate
network attacks. Combinations of these protocols are also referred
to as IP-MAC port binding (IPMB).
- IPv6 First Hop Security extends the advanced threat protection to
IPv6. This comprehensive security suite includes ND inspection, RA
guard, DHCPv6 guard, and neighbor binding integrity check,
providing unparalleled protection against a vast range of address
spoofing and man-in-the-middle attacks on IPv6 networks.
- Time-based ACLs and port operation restrict access to the network
during predesignated times such as business hours.
- Uniform MAC address-based security can be applied automatically
to mobile users as they roam between wireless access points.

Power over Ethernet
Cisco 350 Series Switches are available with up to 48 PoE ports of
Fast Ethernet or up to 24 ports of Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.
This capability simplifies advanced technology deployments such as
IP telephony, wireless, and IP surveillance by allowing you to
connect and power network endpoints over a single Ethernet cable.
With no need to install separate power supplies for IP phones or
wireless access points, you can take advantage of advanced
communications technologies more quickly and at a lower cost.
Models support 802.3af PoE, 802.3at PoE+, and 802.3xx 60W
Networkwide Automatic Voice Deployment
Using a combination of Cisco Discovery Protocol, LLDP-MED, Auto
Smartports, and Voice Services Discovery Protocol (or VSDP, 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. For example, automated voice VLAN capabilities let you
plug any IP phone (including third-party phones) into your IP
telephony network and receive an immediate dial tone. The switch
automatically configures the device with the right VLAN and QoS
parameters to prioritize voice traffic.
As the IP address scheme evolves to accommodate a growing number of
network devices, the Cisco 350 Series can support the transition to
the next generation of networking and operating systems such as
Windows 8, 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 350 Series switches have successfully completed
rigorous IPv6 testing and have received the USGv6 and IPv6 Gold
Advanced Layer 3 Traffic Management
The Cisco 350 Series enables a more advanced set of traffic
management capabilities to help growing businesses organize 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.
With these capabilities, you can boost the efficiency of your
network by offloading internal traffic-handling tasks from your
router and allowing it to manage primarily external traffic and
Additionally, Cisco 350 models provide static Layer 3 routing
features. With these capabilities, you can minimize the need to
manually configure routing devices and simplify the ongoing
operation of the network.
The Cisco 350 Series integrates 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 optimizing power use, which helps protects
the environment and reduce your energy costs. They provide an
eco-friendly network solution without compromising performance.
Cisco 350 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 65/40-nanometer technology and low-power,
high-performance ARM CPUs
- Automatic power shutoff on ports when a link is down
- LEDs that can be turned off to save power
- Embedded intelligence to adjust signal strength based on the
length of the connecting cable
The Cisco 350 Series provides more ports per Gigabit Ethernet
switch than traditional switch models, giving you more flexibility
to connect and empower your business. Gigabit Ethernet models offer
up to 28 ports to give you more value, versus the 24-port variety
with four shared ports that’s common in the market. The Cisco 350
Series also offers mini gigabit interface converter (mini-GBIC)
expansion slots that give you the option to add fiber-optic or
Gigabit Ethernet uplink connectivity to the switch. With the
