Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3560E-48PD-EF switch offers 48 PoE ports and two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, catering to high-density network environments requiring power and data over Ethernet. With a 128 Gbps switching fabric and a forwarding rate of 101.2 Mpps, it efficiently manages data flow, though its 128 MB DRAM and 64 MB flash memory might limit complex configurations and future software updates. The switch operates effectively within a broad range of temperatures and altitudes, but its 48 dB noise level may be a consideration for deployment in quieter office settings.


The Cisco WS-C3560E-48PD-EF is a switch designed for enterprise-level networks, delivering high-speed data, voice, and video across large networks. This switch features 48 Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports that support 10/100/1000 connections, enabling the deployment of modern, high-power devices without the need for additional power supplies or outlets. It also includes two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, ensuring a high-capacity uplink for aggregated data transfer or connection to a larger network backbone. With a forwarding rate of 101.2 million packets per second (Mpps) and a switching fabric capable of handling 128 Gbps, this device is engineered to facilitate quick data transfer and processing, making it suitable for environments with high data throughput requirements. The noise level produced by the switch is relatively low at 48 dB, minimizing distractions in quiet office settings. The hardware specifications include 128 MB of DRAM and 64 MB of flash memory, providing sufficient space for the operating system and network configurations. The switch supports up to 1,000 VLANs, allowing for extensive network segmentation and improved security. With the capacity to handle 4,000 VLAN IDs, 1,000 switched virtual interfaces (SVIs), and 9,216-byte jumbo frames, it offers flexibility in handling large frames and a variety of network configurations for optimized performance. The WS-C3560E-48PD-EF can store up to 6,000 MAC addresses, accommodating large numbers of connected devices without compromising network efficiency. It also supports 1,000 IGMP groups and multicast routes, enabling efficient distribution of streaming media and other multicast applications across the network. The switch is capable of managing up to 8,000 unicast routes and directly connecting to 6,000 hosts, making it a powerful option for complex networks with diverse routing requirements. Physically, the switch has a 1 rack unit (1 RU) fixed configuration, measuring 1.75 inches in height, 17.5 inches in width, and 21.7 inches in depth. It weighs 20.9 pounds, making it a compact yet powerful device suitable for rack-mounted installations. The operating temperature range of 0 °C to 45 °C and storage temperature range of -25 °C to 70 °C ensure reliability under various environmental conditions. Additionally, it operates effectively up to an altitude of 10,000 feet, providing versatility for deployment in different geographical locations.
  • Forwarding rate: 101.2 Mpps for efficient data processing.
  • Switching fabric: 128 Gbps to support high-speed data transfer.
  • Form factor: 1 RU, optimizing space in rack installations.
The operating and nonoperating humidity levels are set at 0% to 95% and 10% to 85% (noncondensing), respectively, ensuring the switch's durability in varying humidity conditions. In summary, the Cisco WS-C3560E-48PD-EF switch is designed to meet the needs of modern, high-performance networks. Its combination of PoE capabilities, high-speed uplinks, and extensive support for VLANs and routing make it an essential component for enterprise networks seeking reliability and scalability.
