Q: What are Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches?
A: Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series of enterprise-class access switches switches extend the power of intent-based networking and Catalyst 9000 hardware and software innovation to a broader set of deployments.
Compared to the scale and feature richness the of Catalyst 9300 Series switches, Catalyst 9200 Series switches focus on offering right-sized switching for simple branch deployments. With its family pedigree, Catalyst 9200 Series offers simplicity without compromise – it is secure, always on and provides a new level of IT simplicity. These switches also support full IEEE 802.3at PoE+, fixed and modular options with field-replaceable network modules, redundant fans, and power supplies and a variety of uplink modules.
Q: What are the key SKUs in the Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series?
A: The Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series has eight primary 8 fixed SKUs and 4 modular SKUs

Q: Can I stack Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches with the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X/XR Series Switches?
A: These switches do not stack together. Features are packaged differently between these platforms, they use different CPU architectures, and the platforms do not have the same scaling, making stacking with them impossible.
Q: Are the network modules shared between the Cisco Catalyst 9200 and 9300 Series switches?
A: Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series switch network modules cannot be used on Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches.
Q: Can Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches act as a wired switch?
A: Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches provide connectivity for wired endpoints and wireless endpoints by connecting wireless access points. With the SD-Access architecture, the wired and wireless endpoints gets the same experience.
Q: What are the supported uplink modules for Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches?
A: Catalyst 9200 Series switches support the following uplink options:
- 4x 1 Gigabit Ethernet network module
- 4x 10 Gigabit Ethernet network module
Q: What management ports are available on the Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches?
A: Catalyst 9200 Series switches come with a 10/100/1000 Ethernet dedicated management port on the backside of the switch right above the console port. This port is in a separate VRF instance called “Mgmt-vrf” in order to segment the management traffic from the global routing table of the switch.
Q: Can I use both console ports on Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches simultaneously?
A: No. When you use the USB console, the RJ-45 console receives the output of the USB console as well. This design allows the administrator to see when the USB console port is in use. This capability is useful for remote administrators.
Q: Do Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches support auto-baud on the console port?
Q: What type of airflow do Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series switches support?
A: The airflow on Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches is “front and sides” to back airflow.
Q: What pluggable transceiver modules do Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches support?
A: Refer to the Cisco Transceiver Module Compatibility Matrixes for a complete list: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/ interfaces-modules/transceiver- modules/products-devicesupport-tables- list.html.
Q: What is the power consumption for Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches
A: Power consumption by SKU is listed on the data sheet and can be seen in Table3. Table3. Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series power consumption by SKU
Q: What is the SKU mapping between the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X/XR and 9200 Series switches?
A: Refer to Table4.
