Benefits of Migrating to Cisco Catalyst 6800 Switch
Why migrate to the Cisco Catalyst 6800 Series switches? These powerful campus switches are the backbone of the digital enterprise. Integrated service modules support wireless, network analysis, and pervasive security. Highly scalable, 6800 Series Switches are optimized for secure 1-10 Gb services and offer a switching capacity of up to 11.4 Tb. Improvements over previous generations include:
- Better customer and employee experiences with deeper visibility into network usage by applications to manage the network effectively
- Advanced security to handle increasing threats
- Reduced cost and complexity through support for software defined networking (SDN) and Catalyst Instant Access for easy network management
Without the right switching solutions—the applications, services, and devices you deploy cannot live up to their potential. Digital transformation makes having the right foundation to stay competitive more important than ever before. See the benefits you could be receiving now by comparing the Cisco Catalyst 6800 Series to older switches (see table below).
Compare and see what you’ve been missing. Aging switches were not designed to handle today’s digital challenges.
