All software feature sets support advanced security, QoS, and management features. A special file contained in the switch, called a license file, is examined by Cisco IOS Software when the switch is powered on. License types can be changed, or upgraded, to activate a different feature set. StackWise technology was designed to respond to additions, deletions, and redeployment while maintaining constant performance. The stack behaves as a single switching unit that is managed by a master switch elected from one of the member switches.

Together, Cisco EnergyWise technology and Cisco Catalyst switches reduce greenhouse gas GhG emissions and increase energy cost savings and sustainable business behavior. Cisco EnergyWise enables companies to measure the power consumption of network infrastructure and network-attached devices and manage power consumption with specific policies, reducing power consumption to realize increased cost savings, potentially affecting any powered device.
EnergyWise encompasses a highly intelligent network-based approach to communicate messages that measure and control energy between network devices and endpoints. The network discovers Cisco EnergyWise manageable devices, monitors their power consumption, and takes action based on business rules to reduce power consumption.
EnergyWise uses a unique domain-naming system to query and summarize information from large sets of devices, making it simpler than traditional network management capabilities. Efficient Switch Operation Cisco Catalyst X and X Series Switches, designed and engineered by Cisco, provide optimum power saving, low power operations for industry best-in-class power management, and power consumption capabilities.
The Cisco Catalyst X and X ports are capable of reduced power modes so that ports not in use can move into a lower power utilization state. StackPower lets customers to simply add one extra power supply in any switch of the stack and provide either power redundancy for any of the stack members or simply add more power to the shared pool.
In addition to adaptive, always on technologies such as StackWise and StackPower, Cisco Catalyst Smart Operations enable zero touch installation and replacement of switches, fast upgrade, as well as ease of troubleshooting with reduced operational cost.
Smart Install utilizes dynamic IP address allocation and the assistance of other switches to facilitate installation providing transparent network plug and play. Using EEM, customers can adapt the behavior of their network devices to align with their business needs. This feature requires IP Base feature set. This feature requires IP Services feature set. Automatic software version checking and updating help ensure that all stack members have the same software version.
Cisco Network Assistant A PC-based network management application designed for small and medium-sized business SMB networks with up to users, Cisco Network Assistant offers centralized network management and configuration capabilities.
Cisco Network Assistant uses Cisco Smartports technology to simplify both initial deployment and ongoing maintenance.
