Cisco® industrial Ethernet (IE) switches use a fanless cooling system that allows operation in challenging environments where large amounts of dust, extreme temperature fluctuations, or vibrations may be present. This design allows the switch to operate in locations that may typically damage an IT-grade switch.

This document provides information on the Cisco IE 2000 switch and the Cisco IE 4010 switch. The two switches have different dimensions but have similar features. For additional information, refer to the Cisco proprietary documentation available from the Support and Downloads page of the Cisco website:

A label on the switch has two important pieces of information. The first is the serial number. This is needed for warranty claims and to associate the switch with a Cisco SmartNet® contract that enables additional Cisco support. The second is the MAC address of the switch. The value printed on the label is the chassis MAC address; the switch has additional MAC addresses for each physical port and switch virtual interface (logical port).
