Increase industrial network resilience and scalability

The Cisco Industrial Ethernet 4010 Series Switches offer a highly secure, reliable, and scalable Industrial Ethernet platform. Built to withstand extreme environments, they provide high-bandwidth switching to help improve uptime and performance for connecting to IP cameras, access points, and IP phones in factories, utility substations, oil and gas fields, and more.

Features and benefits

Reliable performance in harsh environments

IE 4010 Series switches can help reduce downtime. They are hardened for shock, vibration, and extended temperature range from -40 to 75C. They also support redundancy and resiliency ring protocols for fault tolerant operation.

Lower costs with greater inline power

IE 4010 Series switches are easy to install and deliver up to 385W of PoE power budget. They support 24-port Gigabit Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or 12-port PoE+ in a fully enclosed self-cooled, fanless design.

Superior bandwidth and performance

IE 4010 features high-performance non-blocking switching capacity with 28 Gigabit Ethernet ports per switch for a range of high-bandwidth applications.

Easily deploy and manage IE 4000 switches with

Cisco Industrial Network Director, an easy-to-use network manager for non-IT operations personnel. It also features zero-touch deployment and express setup with a swappable SD flash card.

Enterprise grade security

IE 4010 delivers secure policy enforcement and advanced switch security features. It also supports Cisco IOS Flexible NetFlow for  advanced packet flow analysis and monitoring to improve network utilization and detect security incidents.


The IE 4010 come in two options


  • 4 x 1 Gbps SFP
  • 12 x 100/1000 Mbps SFP
  • 12 x 10/100/1000 Mbps PoE/PoE+


  • 4 x 1 Gbps SFP
  • 24 x 10/100/1000 Mbps PoE/PoE+
