Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series

The Catalyst 9300 Series switches form the foundational building block for Software-Defined Access (SD-Access), Cisco’s lead enterprise architecture. At 480 Gbps, they are the industry’s highest-density stacking bandwidth solution with the most flexible uplink architecture. The Catalyst 9300 Series is the first optimized platform for high-density 802.11ac Wave2.
Cisco Catalyst 9300 Switches feature:
+ Highest wireless scale with Wave 2 access points supported on a single switch with select models
+ UADP 2.0 Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) with programmable pipeline and microengine capabilities, along with template-based, configurable allocation of Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding, Access Control Lists (ACLs), and Quality of Service (QoS) entries
+ x86 CPU complex with 8-GB memory, and 16 GB of flash and external USB 3.0 SSD pluggable storage slot (delivering 120GB of storage with an option SSD drive) to host containers
+ USB 2.0 slot to load system images and set configurations
+ Up to 480 Gbps of local stackable switching bandwidth
+ Flexible and dense uplink offerings with 1G, Multigigabit, 10G, 25G, and 40G
+ Flexible downlink options with 1G and Multigigabit links
+ Leading PoE capabilities with up to 384 ports of PoE per stack, 60W Cisco UPOE, and PoE+
+ Intelligent Power Management with Cisco StackPower technology, providing power stacking among members for power redundancy
+ Line-rate, hardware-based Flexible NetFlow (FNF), delivering flow collection of up to 64,000 flows
+ IPv6 support in hardware, providing wire-rate forwarding for IPv6 networks
+ Dual-stack support for IPv4/IPv6 and dynamic hardware forwarding table allocations, for ease of IPv4-to-IPv6 migration
+ IEEE 802.1ba AV Bridging (AVB) built in to provide a better audio and video experience through improved time synchronization and QoS
