Cisco Systems, Inc. today continued its quest to strengthen the market transition to Gigabit Ethernet with the introduction of two new additions to its Catalyst 3750 and the Cisco Catalyst 2970 switch lines.

The Catalyst 3750G 12S and Catalyst 2970G 24TS combine Gigabit Ethernet connectivity with intelligent switching services at the network edge.

“We are seeing an interesting trend in the network, with customers migrating to Gigabit Ethernet from the core to the edge," said Kathy Hill, vice president and general manager of Cisco’s Desktop Switching Business Unit.

"Many customers have upgraded the core of their networks, and we expect to see GTTD adoption begin to accelerate with these new wiring closet switches,”

The 3750G 12S Series improves LAN operating efficiency. It delivers 32 Gbps performance.

Its 12 SFP ports reflect the overall industry trend of moving from copper to fiber as interconnects between LAN switches, the company says.

The 2970G 24TS Series delivers wire speed intelligent services for small and medium businesses and enterprise branch offices.

The list price of 3750G 12S switches is $11,593. The 2970G 24TS retails for $7,968.
