Product Review

The Cisco MS220-48-HW switch offers 48 RJ-45 ports for 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet connections and four 1GbE SFP uplink ports, accommodating a variety of network demands with a switching capacity of 104 Gbps. However, it lacks PoE/PoE+ capabilities, limiting its use in environments requiring power over Ethernet for devices like VoIP phones or wireless access points. Its internal power supply, support for up to 4,094 VLANs, and advanced features like DHCP and IGMP snooping, automatic firmware upgrades, and voice VLAN support make it a versatile choice for mid-sized network deployments.


The Cisco MS220-48-HW is a network switch designed to cater to the needs of small to medium-sized enterprise networks. This device features 48 RJ-45 ports for 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet connections, providing a solid foundation for high-speed local area networks. Additionally, it offers 4 1GbE SFP uplink ports, enabling high-speed connectivity to other network devices or uplink connections to the broader network infrastructure. With a switching capacity of 104 Gbps, the MS220-48-HW ensures efficient handling of traffic, preventing bottlenecks and facilitating smooth data transmission across the network. This switch does not support Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+), which means it cannot supply electrical power to connected devices like IP cameras or VoIP phones over the Ethernet cable. However, its comprehensive feature set still makes it a valuable asset for networks that do not require PoE capabilities. The device is equipped with an internal power supply and is designed for rack mounting, fitting into a standard 19-inch rack with a height of 1.74 inches. Its dimensions are 19.1 inches in width and 14.17 inches in depth, with a weight of 8.47 lbs, making it compact and easy to integrate into existing network infrastructures. Operating efficiency is highlighted by its idle power load of 28 W and a maximum power load of 51 W. This switch operates within a temperature range of 0 °C to 40 °C and can function in environments with humidity levels ranging from 5% (noncondensing) to 95% (noncondensing), ensuring reliability under various conditions. The MS220-48-HW supports a wide array of features designed to enhance network performance and security. DHCP Snooping, IGMP Snooping, and Voice VLAN support are included to improve network traffic management and prioritize voice over IP (VoIP) traffic, ensuring clear communications. The switch also supports up to 4,094 VLANs, allowing for extensive network segmentation and enhanced security. Additionally, with 16K MAC forwarding entries, it can efficiently manage the forwarding database, ensuring quick and accurate data packet delivery. Automatic firmware upgrades are a key feature, ensuring the device runs the latest software without manual intervention, thus maintaining high levels of security and performance. This switch is also designed to operate efficiently with an input AC voltage range of 100 to 240 VAC, making it adaptable to various power supplies and ensuring operational stability across different regions.
