Product Review

The Cisco WS-C2960X-48TD-L switch offers 48 Ethernet ports of 10/100/1000 interface, complemented by two SFP+ uplink interfaces, making it suitable for high-speed connectivity and uplink flexibility. Despite its LAN Base feature set which may limit advanced routing capabilities, the device provides a substantial forwarding bandwidth of 108 Gbps and a switching bandwidth of 216 Gbps, ensuring efficient data processing and traffic management. Additionally, with an MTBF of 445,460 hours, this model promises reliability, but the absence of PoE support could be a drawback for deployments requiring powered devices.


The Cisco WS-C2960X-48TD-L is a network switch designed to enhance operational efficiency, adapt to evolving business needs, and ensure secure and reliable network performance. This switch is equipped with 48 Ethernet interfaces supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps speeds, enabling fast and efficient connectivity for a wide range of devices. In addition to these Ethernet ports, it includes 2 SFP+ uplink interfaces, offering high-speed connectivity to network backbones or other switches. With a feature set categorized under the LAN Base, this switch is optimized for layer 2 networking, but also supports basic layer 3 features, making it versatile for various deployment scenarios. Despite its advanced capabilities, it does not provide Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality, indicating its primary role in environments where devices have their own power sources or in setups where PoE is not required. The physical dimensions of the WS-C2960X-48TD-L make it suitable for standard rack mounting, with a height of 1.75 inches, a width of 11 inches, and a depth of 17.5 inches. It weighs 9.6 lbs, making it relatively easy to handle during installation or when modifications to the network setup are needed. Internally, the switch is powered by an APM86392 600 MHz dual-core CPU and is equipped with 128 MB of flash memory and 512 MB of DRAM. This hardware configuration supports the switch’s advanced features and ensures smooth and reliable operation. The forwarding bandwidth of 108 Gbps and switching bandwidth of 216 Gbps highlight the device’s capacity to handle large volumes of data, ensuring minimal latency and maximizing throughput. Other notable specifications include: - Maximum Active VLANs: 1023, allowing for extensive network segmentation. - Forwarding Rate: 130.9 Mpps, ensuring fast data processing. - MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures): 445,460 Hours, indicating high reliability. - VLAN IDs Available: 4096, offering flexibility in network design. For connectivity and management, the switch features console ports (USB Type B and Ethernet RJ-45) and a storage interface (USB Type A) for external flash storage, providing options for configuration, firmware updates, and file storage. The network management interface operates at 10/100 Mbps via an RJ-45 connection, facilitating straightforward integration into existing network management setups. Support for MTU-L3 packets up to 9198 bytes and jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes allows for efficient data processing and transmission, especially in environments with high data demands. The operating temperature range from -5 °C to 55 °C ensures the switch can perform reliably in various environmental conditions. In summary, the Cisco WS-C2960X-48TD-L combines essential networking features with high performance and reliability, making it suitable for a wide range of business applications.
