Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series–Tech Overview

Read the key words for Catalyst 9300 Series firstly: StackWise, UADP 2.0, StackPower, Cisco UPOE, IoT, security, cloud, Software-Defined Access.

The Catalyst 9300 Series is designed for Cisco StackWise technology, providing flexible deployment with support for nonstop forwarding with stateful switchover (NSF/SSO), for the most resilient architecture in a stackable (sub-50-ms) solution.

The highly resilient and efficient power architecture features Cisco StackPower, which delivers high-density Cisco Universal Power Over Ethernet (Cisco UPOE) and Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) ports.

The switches are based on the Cisco Unified Access Data Plane 2.0 (UADP) 2.0 architecture which not only protects your investment but also allows a larger scale and higher throughput. A modern operating system, open Cisco IOS XE with programmability offers advanced security capabilities and Internet of Things (IoT) convergence.

  • The Catalyst 9300 Series is the first optimized platform for high-density 802.11ac Wave2.
  • It sets new maximums for network scale.
  • These switches are also ready for the future, with an x86 CPU architecture and more memory, enabling them to host containers and run third-party applications and scripts natively within the switch.
