Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-L switch offers a solid foundation for network infrastructure with its 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports and 2x10G uplink ports, providing ample connectivity options for various devices and high-speed uplink capabilities. However, its LAN Base feature set may limit advanced network services and routing capabilities, suitable for simple layer 2 networks but potentially insufficient for complex layer 3 deployments. With support for up to 160 Gbps stacking bandwidth, it ensures efficient traffic handling in stacked configurations, although the optional nature of stacking modules adds to the total cost for those requiring this feature.


The Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-L is a versatile and powerful networking switch designed to support a wide range of applications in enterprise networks. This device offers a compact 1 rack unit (RU) form factor, making it suitable for space-constrained environments while still providing ample connectivity and performance features. At the core of the Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-L are 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, allowing for direct connection of devices with varying speed requirements while also delivering power over Ethernet to supported devices. This capability simplifies the network infrastructure by reducing the need for additional power cables and adapters for connected devices. Additionally, it includes two 10G uplink ports, ensuring high-speed connectivity to the network backbone or other switches, which is crucial for handling large data transfers and supporting high-bandwidth applications. The switch is equipped with a 1025 WAC power supply, providing sufficient power for the switch's operations and for powering connected PoE devices. Its forwarding rate of 104.16 Mpps (million packets per second) ensures efficient handling of network traffic, maintaining high performance even under heavy loads. Key hardware specifications include: - DRAM of 4 GB and Flash Memory of 4 GB, offering ample storage for the operating system, applications, and network configurations. - MAC Address capacity of 32,000, allowing the switch to handle a large number of connected devices without compromising network performance. - Support for up to 4094 VLAN IDs, enabling the creation of separate virtual networks within the same physical network infrastructure for enhanced security and network management. The switch supports a LAN Base feature set, providing essential layer 2 features required for basic network operations. It also comes with capabilities for stacking, with a stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps, allowing multiple units to be interconnected and managed as a single entity, thus simplifying network management and scalability. Other notable specifications include support for up to 24,000 IPv4 routes and 48,000 Flexible NetFlow (FNF) entries, enabling efficient routing and comprehensive network monitoring. The device can handle jumbo frames up to 9198 bytes, beneficial for reducing overhead in large data transfers. Additionally, it supports up to 1000 switched virtual interfaces (SVIs), facilitating the deployment of complex network topologies. For wireless deployments, the Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-L can manage up to 25 access points per switch or stack and supports up to 1000 wireless clients, making it an ideal solution for organizations with a significant wireless footprint. It also allows for the creation of up to 64 WLANs per switch, providing flexibility in managing wireless access and security. With a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 383,760 hours, this switch promises reliability and longevity in operational environments. Weighing 17.20 lbs and measuring 1.73 x 17.5 x 19.125 inches, it is designed for easy integration into existing network racks. In summary, the Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-L is a highly capable and scalable networking switch that meets the demands of modern enterprise networks, offering advanced features and specifications to support a wide array of network applications and services.
