Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3560CG-8TC-S offers 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 2 dual-purpose uplink ports, providing flexibility in connectivity. With a forwarding bandwidth of 10 Gbps and a forwarding rate of 14.9 Mpps, it supports high-speed data processing, but lacks Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, limiting its use in environments requiring power to devices via Ethernet cables. Additionally, its compact size and durability, evidenced by an MTBF of 488,549 hours, make it suitable for small-scale or harsh conditions, though the limitation of 0 W PoE might be a critical factor for certain deployments.


The Cisco WS-C3560CG-8TC-S switch is designed to accommodate the demands of high-speed networking with a compact and efficient form factor. This device is suited for small enterprise LAN access or branch-office environments, offering a blend of performance, security, and reliability. This model comes equipped with eight Gigabit Ethernet ports, supporting high-speed connectivity and efficient network traffic management. Additionally, it features two dual-purpose uplink ports, enhancing the system's flexibility for network connection and expansion. The switch operates on the IP Base feature set, tailored for basic enterprise applications. Key hardware specifications include a forwarding bandwidth of 10 Gbps and a forwarding rate of 14.9 million packets per second (Mpps), ensuring swift data processing and transmission across the network. The device is designed for long-term reliability, with a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 488,549 hours, highlighting its durability and stability in various operating conditions. Memory capacity is ample for network device management and operation, with 128 MB of DRAM and 64 MB of flash memory. This storage space supports the system's software and configuration files, contributing to the switch's overall performance and efficiency. -
  • Supports up to 1005 VLANs and 4000 VLAN IDs, allowing for extensive network segmentation and improved security.
  • -
  • Enables jumbo frames up to 9018 bytes, facilitating the efficient handling of large data packets and enhancing network performance.
  • -
  • Features per-port status LEDs and system status LEDs, providing visual indications of network and system health for easy monitoring and troubleshooting.
  • The compact size of 1.75 x 10.6 x 8.4 inches and a weight of just 3 lbs make the Cisco WS-C3560CG-8TC-S an ideal choice for environments where space is at a premium. Despite its small footprint, the switch does not compromise on power and efficiency. Operating within a temperature range of -5 °C to 45 °C and capable of being stored in temperatures ranging from -25 °C to 70 °C, the switch is built to withstand a variety of environmental conditions.
