Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3560E-12SD-S offers a balanced configuration for medium-sized network environments, featuring 12 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports and 2 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, supporting a variety of optical connections for flexible uplink options. However, with a fixed configuration and 1 RU form factor, scalability might be a concern for rapidly growing networks. Additionally, while the switch provides a solid forwarding rate of 47.6 Mpps and a switching fabric of 128 Gbps, the noise level at 44 dB could be a consideration for deployments in quieter office environments.


The Cisco WS-C3560E-12SD-S switch is engineered to meet the demands of enterprise networks, providing a high level of performance, security, and scalability. It is a fixed configuration switch in a 1 RU form factor, designed to enhance productivity by enabling applications such as IP telephony, wireless, and video for a borderless network experience. This switch includes 12 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports and 2 X2-based 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, making it well-suited for high-speed connectivity and uplink applications. Its forwarding rate of 47.6 Mpps (million packets per second) ensures efficient handling of traffic, even in data-intensive environments. The switching fabric of 128 Gbps supports high-bandwidth applications, ensuring smooth data transmission across the network. -

  • The switch comes with an IP Base feature set, providing essential features for network layer connectivity and certain security features. It supports 1K VLANs (Virtual Local Area Networks) and 4K VLAN IDs, allowing for extensive network segmentation and improved security. With 1K SVIs (Switched Virtual Interfaces), the switch can handle large-scale network deployments. It also supports jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, beneficial for improving network performance by reducing the number of frames transmitted. Memory capacity includes 128 MB of DRAM and 64 MB of Flash memory, facilitating smooth operation and storage of the operating system and configurations. The switch can store up to 6K MAC (Media Access Control) addresses, 1K IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) groups, and manage 1K multicast routes, making it ideal for multimedia applications. It supports up to 8K unicast routes and can directly connect to 6K hosts, offering substantial scalability for growing networks. The physical dimensions of this switch are 1.75 inches in height, 17.5 inches in width, and 15 inches in depth, with a weight of 16 pounds. It operates efficiently within a temperature range of 0 °C to 45 °C and can be stored in temperatures ranging from -25 °C to 70 °C. The operating relative humidity range is 0% to 95% (noncondensing), and the nonoperating relative humidity range is 10% to 85% (noncondensing), ensuring reliable performance in various environmental conditions. The switch is designed to operate at altitudes up to 10,000 feet, accommodating a wide range of deployment scenarios. Acoustic noise levels are maintained at 44 dB, minimizing noise in work environments. This aspect, combined with its compact size and weight, makes the Cisco WS-C3560E-12SD-S switch a suitable option for office settings, data centers, and other environments where space and noise levels are concerns. In summary, the Cisco WS-C3560E-12SD-S switch is engineered for enterprises requiring high-performance, secure, and scalable networking solutions. Its combination of Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, advanced feature set, and robust performance specifications make it an excellent choice for supporting complex network architectures and applications.
