Cisco 9400 Series Switches

The Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches are Cisco’s leading modular enterprise switching access, distribution and core platform built for security, IoT and cloud. These switches form the foundational building block for SD-Access ― Cisco’s lead enterprise architecture.

The platform provides unparalleled investment protection with a chassis architecture that is capable of supporting up to 9 Tbps of system bandwidth and unmatched power delivery for high density IEEE 802.3bt (60W and 90W PoE). Redundancy is now table stakes across the portfolio. The Catalyst 9400 delivers state-of-the-art High Availability (HA) with capabilities like Cisco StackWise Virtual technology with In-service-software-upgrade (ISSU), SSO/NSF, uplink resiliency, N+1/N+N redundancy for power supplies. The platform is enterprise optimized with an innovative dual-serviceable fan tray design, side to side airflow and is closet-friendly with ~16” depth. A single system can scale up to 384 access ports with your choice of 1G copper, mGig, Cisco UPOE+, UPOE, PoE+, 1G Fiber options.

The availability of 1/10 G fiber ports facilitate aggregation of existing small form factor fixed access switches. The addition of the new SUP-1XL-Y supervisor allows unique investment protection through 25 G uplink connectivity option which is becoming a popular alternative to 10 G in the core. The platform also supports advanced routing and infrastructure services, SD-Access capabilities and network system virtualization. These features enable optional placement of the platform in the core and aggregation layers of small to medium-sized campus environments.

Embedded Wireless on Catalyst 9000 switches (SD-Access network not required) using WebUI: The Cisco Catalyst 9800 embedded Wireless Controller Software package can be installed on Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series switches to enable wireless controller functionality. This solution is designed for single secure site deployment. You can use the simple WebUI to configure and enable the wireless controller. Once installed, the Catalyst 9800 embedded Wireless Controller running on a Catalyst 9400 Series switch can support up to 200 APs and 4000 Clients. A maximum of two wireless controllers can be enabled per site on two different Catalyst 9400 Series switches increasing the scale up to 400 APs and 8000 Wireless Clients. Up to 4 VRFs are supported. SSO support is also available in dual-SUP mode.
