The hardware is equipped with a feature set categorized under IP Services, offering advanced network services and capabilities. The switching capacity of the Cisco WS-C3650-48PD-E is 176 Gbps, and it supports a stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps, which allows for high-speed data processing and transfer rates when multiple units are stacked together.
  • MAC Addresses: Supports up to 32,000 MAC addresses, enabling a large number of devices to connect without compromising network performance.
  • IPv4 Routes: Can handle up to 24,000 IPv4 routes, facilitating efficient routing of data across the network.
  • FNF Entries: With support for up to 48,000 Flexible NetFlow (FNF) entries, it offers comprehensive network monitoring and reporting capabilities.
In terms of memory, it comes with 4 GB of DRAM and 2 GB of Flash Memory, providing sufficient space for the operating system and network configurations. It supports up to 4094 VLAN IDs and 1000 Switch Virtual Interfaces (SVIs), allowing for extensive network segmentation and efficient management of network traffic. The switch can support jumbo frames up to 9198 bytes, improving network performance by allowing larger packets to be sent without fragmentation. It allows for up to 208 routed ports per stack, increasing the scalability and flexibility of the network topology. Additionally, it can support up to 25 access points per switch or stack and up to 1000 wireless clients, making it ideal for environments with high-density wireless connectivity requirements. The wireless bandwidth per switch can reach up to 40 Gbps, ensuring high-speed wireless connectivity across the network. The forwarding rate is 104.16 Mpps (million packets per second), highlighting its ability to handle large volumes of data efficiently. With a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 383,760 hours, the Cisco WS-C3650-48PD-E is reliable and designed for long-term operation. Weighing 16.75 lbs, it is relatively lightweight, facilitating easy installation and maintenance. This switch is designed to meet the needs of medium to large enterprises, providing a scalable, reliable, and efficient solution for advanced networking requirements.
