The Cisco Catalyst® 2950 Series is a line of fixed-configuration, stackable, and standalone switches that provide wire-speed Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. This product line offers two distinct sets of software features and a range of configurations to allow small, mid-sized, and enterprise branch offices, and industrial environments to select the right combination for the network edge. The Standard Image (SI) Software offers Cisco IOS® functionality for basic data, video and voice services. For networks with requirements for additional security, advanced quality of service (QoS) and high availability, the Enhanced Image (EI) Software delivers intelligent services such as rate limiting and security filtering for deployment at the network edge.
Embedded in all Catalyst 2950 and 2955 switches is the Cisco Cluster Management Suite (CMS) Software, which allows users to simultaneously configure and troubleshoot multiple Catalyst desktop switches using a standard web browser.
