Will there be an 8-port version of the ESW 500 switches?

Answered Question
Aug 1st, 2009

I know that Cisco is phasing out the Catalyst Express switches. Cisco has already released 24-port and 48-port versions of the ESW 500 switches. Will Cisco be releasing 8-port versions of the ESW 500 switches?

I have this problem too.

  As Marcos mentioned while we do not disclose roadmap plans on the forum - I can tell you that an 8 port POE version is very much in our near term plans - look for more information on this towards the end of 2009 on this.

Hi John,


As stated a few times before, Cisco does not / cannot comment about roadmap plans. With that said, we are always revising our product portfolio. Do you think an 8 port switch is needed in the SMB sector?

Thanks,


Marcos

Hi Marcos,

The 8 port ESW-520-8P compact switch would be more than welcome! A great alternative to the WS-CE520-8PC-K9. Small businesses favour a small form factor, low noise and a small price ;-)
