Used Cisco Catalyst 2970 Series Switches
The Cisco Catalyst 2970 series switch makes the perfect service improvement for small and medium businesses as well as enterprise branch offices.

Each unit still provides significant network intelligence to assist with data security, scaling and support for controlling and differentiating traffic flows. These models remain robust enough to respond to demands in modern networks from the core to the WAN. Private VLAN Edge features can also isolate ports on a switch to help best manage your traffic.
