"Cisco is expanding its push to attract more small business professionals to its networking gear. This week Cisco announced a new set of 200-series switches and a new router platform that adds several big-business features tailored for the needs of small business.

"The small business product expansion is part of a multi-year effort from Cisco. In 2010, Cisco launched the unmanaged 100 series and the 300 series Linux-powered switch families.

"The new 200-series switch family is intended to fill the gap between the unmanaged 100 series and fully managed 300 series. Cisco Product Manager Brad Sakai told InternetNews.com that the 200 series delivers switches that are what Cisco refers to as "smart" or lightly managed switches. As opposed to the 100 series switches, 200 series users get Quality of Service (QoS) and VLAN capabilities. The 200 series also includes support for the next generation IPv6 Internet addressing protocol."
