Product Review

The Cisco WS-C2960XR-48LPS-I offers a comprehensive set of features suitable for medium-sized enterprise networks, with its 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces and four SFP uplink interfaces enhancing connectivity options. However, the limited flash memory of 128 MB might restrict advanced users who require extensive IOS image or configuration file storage. Additionally, while the switch provides a total PoE power of 370W across its Ethernet ports for devices such as VoIP phones and wireless access points, environments requiring higher PoE demands may find this insufficient.


The Cisco WS-C2960XR-48LPS-I is a stackable switch designed for operational simplicity to lower total cost of ownership. It enables scalable, secure, and energy-efficient business operations with intelligent services and a range of advanced Cisco IOS Software features. This switch is equipped with 48 Ethernet interfaces supporting speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps, enabling high-speed connectivity and efficient traffic management for medium to large networks. Additionally, it features four uplink interfaces with SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) modules to facilitate fiber connectivity for high-speed uplinks. Key hardware specifications of the Cisco WS-C2960XR-48LPS-I include: - Available PoE Power: 370 W, allowing the switch to power connected devices such as VoIP phones, wireless access points, and surveillance cameras directly through Ethernet cables, eliminating the need for separate power supplies for those devices. - Size and Weight: The unit measures 1.75 x 16.0 x 17.5 inches and weighs 14.2 lbs., making it suitable for rack mounting in a standard 19-inch rack with a 1U (Unit) rack height. - Performance: The switch boasts a forwarding bandwidth of 108 Gbps and a switching bandwidth of 216 Gbps, ensuring efficient data processing and traffic management across all ports. The IP Lite feature set provides advanced layer 2 and basic layer 3 capabilities, including support for up to 1023 active VLANs, enabling segmentation of networks into separate, smaller broadcast domains for improved performance and security. The Cisco WS-C2960XR-48LPS-I also supports a forwarding rate of 107.1 million packets per second (Mpps), facilitating swift data packet processing and transmission. With a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 274,380 hours, this switch promises reliability and longevity in enterprise networking environments. It also supports up to 4096 VLAN IDs, offering flexibility in configuring VLANs as per organizational needs. The device is powered by an APM86392 600 MHz Dual Core CPU, supplemented by 128 MB of flash memory and 512 MB of DRAM, ensuring smooth operation and sufficient storage for the operating system and configurations. For connectivity and management, the switch provides console ports in USB (Type B) and Ethernet (RJ-45) formats, along with a USB (Type A) storage interface for external flash storage. Network management is facilitated through a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet (RJ-45) interface, allowing for remote monitoring and configuration. The Cisco WS-C2960XR-48LPS-I supports an MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) for L3 packets of 9198 bytes and enables jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, beneficial for optimizing the performance of large data transfers. It operates efficiently within a temperature range of -5 °C to 40 °C and can function at altitudes up to 10,000 feet. The switch is designed to operate in environments with relative humidity ranging from 10% to 95% (noncondensing), ensuring resilience in varied climatic conditions. This switch stands out for its comprehensive feature set and adaptability, making it an ideal choice for organizations looking to enhance their network infrastructure.
