Cisco Systems Inc has expanded its Catalyst 1900 series of Ethernet workgroup switches, adding the Catalyst 1912 to the low- end off the range. The Catalyst 1912 is a fixed-configuration switch with 12 10BaseT ports and one AUI port, each delivering 10Mbps of bandwidth, and one 100BaseT port for high-speed server or backbone networking. It can store 1024 MAC addresses enabling users to connect directly to desktops or 10BaseT hubs for local area network segmentation, providing added flexibility and investment protection. The Catalyst 1912 incorporates features of the Cisco Internetworking Operating System and has support for CiscoWorks Windows, an SNMP simple network management protocol- based management software application. The Catalyst 1912 is the latest addition to the NetBeyond extended network system of modular, stackable local and wide area network products. NetBeyond is aimed at small and medium-sized business and branch offices of larger enterprises. The NetBeyond system currently includes Cisco’s 3600 series of high-performance access routers, the FastHub 300 series of 100BaseT hubs, and the Catalyst 1900 and 2820 series of Ethernet switches. The Catalyst 1912 is available now for $2,500 for the 14-port switch.
