Product Review

The Cisco WS-C2960S-24TD-L switch offers 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 2 SFP+ uplink interfaces, supporting high-speed connectivity and efficient network traffic management. However, it operates on the LAN Base IOS software feature set, which may limit advanced routing and security features needed for complex network architectures. Additionally, the absence of Power over Ethernet (PoE) support restricts its deployment in environments requiring power to devices over Ethernet, despite its solid performance metrics and optional FlexStack stacking capability for scalable network design.


The Cisco WS-C2960S-24TD-L is a network switch designed for enterprise-level networks, providing high-speed connectivity and reliability for a wide range of applications. This model comes equipped with 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces, allowing for extensive connectivity options for devices within the network. Additionally, it features two uplink interfaces with SFP+ support, enhancing its capability to connect with higher network hierarchies or other networks efficiently. This switch runs on the Cisco IOS Software Feature Set LAN Base, providing a solid foundation for handling basic network management, security, and scalability requirements. Despite the absence of Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, which stands at 0 W for this model, it compensates with a formidable forwarding rate of 65.5 Mpps (million packets per second) and boasts an impressive forwarding bandwidth of 88 Gbps. Furthermore, the switching bandwidth of this device reaches 176 Gbps, ensuring swift data transfer across the network. In terms of virtual networking, the WS-C2960S-24TD-L supports up to 255 active VLANs, with a pool of 4000 VLAN IDs available for segmenting the network into distinct broadcast domains for improved security and traffic management. The switch can also handle large data packets efficiently, with a maximum Layer 3 packet size of 9198 bytes and support for jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, facilitating the smooth processing of large data files or images across the network without fragmentation. Key hardware specifications include: - DRAM of 128 MB and Flash Memory of 64 MB, sufficient for the operating system and basic network applications. - A Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 332,958 hours, indicating high reliability and reduced downtime. - Optional FlexStack stacking, allowing for the scalability of the network by connecting multiple switches to form a single logical unit. Physically, the device measures 1.75 x 17.5 x 11.8 inches and weighs 9.5 lbs, making it compact enough for easy deployment in a rack-mount setup without sacrificing durability. Despite its power, the switch operates relatively quietly, with a sound pressure level of 44 dB and a sound power of 5.4 B, thus minimizing noise in work environments. Additional specifications include: - Operating temperature ranges from -5 °C to 40 °C at altitudes up to 3000m, and storage temperatures from -25 °C to 70 °C, ensuring the switch's performance in various environmental conditions. - The switch can operate up to an altitude of 10,000 ft, with a relative humidity range of 10% to 95% (non-condensing), demonstrating its robustness in different atmospheric conditions. In summary, the Cisco WS-C2960S-24TD-L is a feature-rich, high-performance switch designed for enterprises seeking reliable, high-speed networking solutions. Its extensive connectivity options, high throughput, and support for advanced networking features make it an excellent choice for organizations looking to optimize their network performance and scalability.
