What are the Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series Switches?
The Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series Switches are the next generation of enterprise-class stackable access-layer switches that are part of the new Cisco Catalyst 9000 Family. These switches also support full IEEE 802.3at PoE+, UPoE, modular and field-replaceable network modules, redundant fans, and power supplies.
In addition, the Cisco Catalyst 9300-based models support a variety of uplink modules for both copper and fiber uplink support. These models add even more flexibility to the interface choices that you can make in a single Cisco Catalyst 9300 Switch or in a stack of Cisco Catalyst 9300 Switches.

Can I stack Cisco Catalyst 9300 with the 3850?
These switches do not stack together. Features are packaged differently between these platforms, they use different CPU architectures, and the platforms do not have the same scaling, making stacking with them impossible.
Are the network modules shared between the Cisco Catalyst 9300 and 9500?
No, the network modules are not shared between the Catalyst 9300 and 9500 because the ASIC, depth, and form factors are different for these product lines.
Can the Cisco Catalyst 9300 act as a wired switch?
The Catalyst 9300 switch provides connectivity for wired endpoints and wireless endpoints by connecting wireless access points. With the SD-Access architecture, the wired and wireless endpoints gets the same experience.
What are the supported uplink modules in the Cisco Catalyst 9300?
The Catalyst 9300 supports the following new uplink modules. All modules are supported across all 9300 platforms:
- 4 x 1 Gigabit Ethernet network module
- 4 x 1, 2.5, 5, or 10 Gigabit Ethernet network module
- 8 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet network module
- 2 x 40 Gigabit Ethernet network module
