Bias-Free Language

The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product. Learn more about how Cisco is using Inclusive Language.

Enterprise quality for small deployments

Save time, money, and headaches with proven technology from the company known for network innovation. The Cisco® Catalyst® 1000 Series Switches deliver simplicity, flexibility and security for networks with up to 250 users and little or no IT support.

The compact, fanless design and improved reliability mean these Layer 2 switches can hide in plain sight in an open-plan office, day spa, or classroom without disturbing the environment. Installing Internet of Things (IoT) devices wherever needed becomes as simple as plugging in a network cable thanks to Power over Ethernet (PoE). PoE reliability is improved with features such as Perpetual PoE and Dying Gasp.

Cisco Catalyst 1000 Series Switches allow up to eight switches to be managed via single IP management.



Reliable, easy-to-manage technology that lets you focus on your business.


Hide the switch in plain sight in an open-plan office, day spa, or classroom without disturbing the environment.
