Product Review

The Cisco WS-C2960S-48TD-L offers a solid performance with 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces and a high forwarding rate of 101.2 Mpps, supported by switching bandwidth of 176 Gbps, making it suitable for high-demand environments. However, the device lacks Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, which might limit its use in scenarios requiring power to be delivered over the network cables to connected devices. Additionally, the switch's optional FlexStack stacking feature and a maximum of 255 active VLANs support scalability and network segmentation, but the limited DRAM and Flash Memory (128 MB and 64 MB, respectively) may restrict advanced features or future software upgrades.


The Cisco WS-C2960S-48TD-L is a fixed-configuration switch designed for enterprise networks requiring scalability, reliability, and ease of management. This model features 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces, enabling high-speed connectivity for a wide range of devices. Additionally, it is equipped with two SFP+ uplink interfaces, facilitating high-speed connections to other network devices or aggregation points. This switch operates on the Cisco IOS LAN Base software feature set, providing a suite of powerful network services and capabilities suitable for a variety of applications. Despite its extensive capabilities, the WS-C2960S-48TD-L does not offer Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, focusing instead on delivering high-performance wired connections. Key performance metrics of this switch include a forwarding rate of 101.2 million packets per second (Mpps) and a forwarding bandwidth of 88 Gbps, with a total switching bandwidth of 176 Gbps. These specifications ensure efficient handling of data traffic, minimizing bottlenecks and improving network responsiveness. The switch supports up to 255 active Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), with a pool of 4000 VLAN IDs available for network segmentation, enhancing security and traffic management. It also supports Layer 3 packet sizes up to 9198 bytes and jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, allowing for the efficient transmission of large data packets. Physically, the WS-C2960S-48TD-L measures 1.75 x 17.5 x 11.8 inches and weighs 9.5 lbs, making it suitable for rack-mounting in a standard 19-inch equipment rack. Its operational noise level is quantified at 44 dB sound pressure and 5.4 B sound power, indicating a moderate noise profile suitable for office environments. Optional FlexStack stacking allows for the scalability of the network by connecting multiple switches, thereby increasing port count and management simplicity. The Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) for this model is 311,291 hours, indicating a high level of reliability over its operational lifespan. The switch is equipped with 128 MB of DRAM and 64 MB of flash memory, facilitating smooth operation and ample space for IOS and configuration files. Environmental tolerances include operating temperatures from -5 °C to 40 °C at altitudes up to 10,000 feet, and storage temperatures ranging from -25 °C to 70 °C. It can operate in relative humidity levels from 10% to 95% (non-condensing), ensuring reliability in a wide range of climatic conditions. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces and 2 SFP+ uplink interfaces
  • Forwarding rate of 101.2 Mpps and forwarding bandwidth of 88 Gbps
  • Maximum active VLANs 255 and support for jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes
