Cisco Multigigabit Technology

Extend the life of your network investment

As wireless speeds increase, don't let your switches become a bottleneck. Prepare your access switches for Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac Wave 2 with Cisco Multigigabit Technology. It also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE and PoE+), and Cisco Universal Power over Ethernet (Cisco UPOE and UPOE+), so you don't need to install new electrical circuits to power your access points.

Build a sustainable future

Cisco is powering the future of hybrid work with sustainable, smart building technology. Request your free resource kit to learn how smart building solutions can help enhance health and safety, support collaboration, increase efficiencies, and form the foundation of hybrid workspaces.

Features and benefits

Today's organizations depend on always-on connectivity, which is driving new wireless standards such as Wi-Fi 6E.

Support Wi-Fi 6/6E

Create better user experiences with Wi-Fi 6/6E and enjoy up to a fivefold jump in wireless speeds, up to 6.8 Gbps. Cisco Multigigabit Technology delivers speeds beyond 1 Gbps on existing cabling, surpassing previously achievable speeds.

Get NBASE-T technology

Use NBASE-T technology to support Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ac Wave 2. By default, Category 5e cables inside buildings that connect switches to access points are limited to 1-Gigabit speeds. NBASE-T makes it possible to support up to 10 Gbps over those cables.

Power your solution

Cisco Multigigabit Technology supports PoE, PoE+, UPOE, and UPOE+, so you don't need to install new electrical circuits to power access points. You get 90 watts of UPOE+ to power downstream devices, including lighting, IP phones, shades, IPTVs, surveillance cameras, and virtual desktop clients.
