The Cisco Small Business 220 Series offers a combination of powerful product performance and reliability. This series provides higher levels of security, management, and scalability you can get from a managed switch, but at the same time, giving you the affordable price of a smart switch, allowing you to enjoy the best of both experience.
Higher level of security and intelligence using Access Control Lists (ACLs) and Quality of Service (QoS)
Simple and flexible management with the use of multiple options aside from the intuitive, web-based interface and Cisco FindIT utility such as the Cisco Command Line Interface (CLI), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and the Cisco Prime™ LAN Management System (LMS) integration
Power Over Ethernet Plus allows data and power to run over a single network cable
High performance and reliability by speeding up file transfers and providing the flexibility to manage and prioritize high-bandwidth traffic
Optimal energy efficiency with the use of Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) and Energy Detect support
Enhanced network security with the enhanced ACLs, port security, Guest VLANs, BPDU guard, DOS and many more
Easy configuration and management with the use of CDP, LLDP and FindIT Network Management
Advanced network management capabilities through CLI, Dual-image, Dual-configuration, and IPv6 support
The Cisco text and logo can be seen at the top of the device.
At the front panel of the device, all the ports can be seen with their LED indicators. The number of ports and the availability of the LED indicators vary depending on the exact model of your switch. The System LED and the Reset button can also be seen at the front panel.
The Power and Console ports are located at the back of the device. The Console port connects the switch to the serial port of the computer using the supplied console cable.
The Reset button is used to reboot or reset the switch with a pin or paper clip.
This LED indicates the status of the device depending on what state it is in.
Steady — Lights up and remain steady when the switch is powered ON.
Flashing — Booting up, performing self-tests, and/or acquiring an IP address.
Flashing — Detecting a hardware failure, a firmware failure, and/or a configuration file error.
The RJ45 Ports or Ethernet Ports are the ports where you connect your networking devices such as computers, printers, VoIP phones, access points, and other devices. For the SF220 Series models, these ports provide speed from 10 to 100 Mbps. For the SG220 Series models, these ports provide 10 to 1000 Mbps speed.
Note: The availability of the LEDs on the RJ45 Ports described below depends on the exact model of your switch.
LINK/ACT LED — (Green) Located on the left of the port. The light goes steady when a link between the corresponding port and other device is detected. The light flashes when the port is passing traffic.
PoE LED (if present) — (Amber) Located on the right of the port. The light goes steady when power is being supplied to a device attached to the corresponding port.
100M LED (if present) — (Green) Located on the right of the port. The light goes steady when another device is connected to the port, is powered on, and a 100 Mbps link is established between the devices. The light goes off when the connection speed is under 100 Mbps, or nothing is connected to the port.
GIGABIT LED (if present) — (Green) Located on the right of the port. The light goes steady when another device is connected to the port, is powered on, and a 1000 Mbps link is established between the devices. . The light goes off when the connection speed is under 1000 Mbps, or nothing is connected to the port.
The Small Form-Pluggable (SFP) ports are connection points for modules so that the switch can link to other switches. These ports are also commonly referred to or known as mini Gigabit Interface Converter (miniGBIC) ports.
The SFP ports are compatible with Cisco modules MFEBX1, MFEFX1, MFELX1, MGBLH1, MGBLX1, MGBSX1, MGEBX1, and MGBT1.
The SFP port is shared with one other RJ-45 port, called a combo port. When the SFP port is active, the adjacent RJ-45 port is disabled.
The LEDs of the corresponding RJ-45 ports flash green to respond to the SFP port traffic.
