Product Review

The Cisco WS-C2960S-24TS-L switch provides 24 Ethernet interfaces and 4 SFP+ uplink interfaces, supporting high-speed connectivity and efficient network integration. However, the absence of Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability limits its deployment for devices requiring power through Ethernet cables. With a forwarding rate of 41.7 Mpps and switching bandwidth of 176 Gbps, it offers high performance for data transmission, yet its 128 MB DRAM and 64 MB Flash memory may not suffice for complex, modern network operations requiring more extensive firmware or software features.


The Cisco WS-C2960S-24TS-L is a Layer 2 switch that provides efficient connectivity for branch offices or mid-sized business networks, offering enhanced operational simplicity, improved sustainability, and a borderless network experience. This model comes with 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces, providing ample capacity for wired connections to support various devices including computers, printers, and other networking hardware. Additionally, it features 4 SFP+ uplink interfaces, allowing for high-speed connectivity to network backbones or other switches, facilitating a scalable and high-performance network architecture. This switch operates on the Cisco IOS Software with the LAN Base feature set, offering essential security, QoS, and availability features required for a secure and reliable network. Despite its advanced capabilities, the WS-C2960S-24TS-L does not provide Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, focusing instead on delivering high-speed data connectivity and network resilience. The hardware specifications underscore the switch's performance and reliability. It boasts a forwarding rate of 41.7 million packets per second (Mpps) and a forwarding bandwidth of 88 gigabits per second (Gbps), with a total switching bandwidth of 176 Gbps. This ensures smooth data transmission across the network, even under heavy traffic conditions. The switch supports a maximum of 255 active VLANs from 4000 available VLAN IDs, providing flexibility in network segmentation and enhanced security. It also supports jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, allowing for efficient data processing and transfer of large files. Key hardware features include: - MTU for L3 packets is 9198 bytes, accommodating larger packets for efficient network operations. - FlexStack stacking is optional, offering scalability and ease of management by allowing multiple switches to be managed as a single unit. - The Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) is 349,824 hours, indicating high reliability and reduced downtime. Physically, the switch measures 1.75 x 17.5 x 11.8 inches and weighs 10 lbs, making it compact and suitable for standard rack mounting in data centers or network closets. Despite its power, it maintains a sound pressure level of 44 dB and a sound power of 5.4 B, minimizing noise in work environments. For memory, it is equipped with 128 MB of DRAM and 64 MB of flash memory, sufficient for its operating system and network configurations. The operating conditions are designed to be resilient, with a minimum operating temperature of -5 °C and a maximum of 40 °C at an altitude of up to 10,000 ft, and it can operate in relative humidity ranging from 10% to 95% (non-condensing), ensuring reliable operation in a wide range of environmental conditions. In summary, the Cisco WS-C2960S-24TS-L switch is tailored for businesses seeking a reliable, scalable, and high-performance networking solution without the need for PoE capabilities. Its comprehensive feature set, combined with robust hardware specifications, makes it an essential component of any efficient network infrastructure.
