Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3560G-24TS-E offers 24 10/100 Ethernet ports and 2 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports, catering to varied networking needs with a forwarding bandwidth of 32 Gbps and a rate of 38.7 Mpps, ensuring efficient data handling. However, the switch's memory capacity, with 128 MB DRAM and 32 MB flash memory, might limit complex operations and future scalability. Additionally, its robust design, indicated by a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 230,700 hours, ensures reliability, though the operational noise level of 42 dBA could be a concern in quieter work environments.


The Cisco WS-C3560G-24TS-E is a networking device engineered to address a wide range of communication needs. It features 24 Ethernet ports for 10/100 connectivity and includes 2 SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) based Gigabit Ethernet ports for high-speed network connections. This switch is designed within a 1 RU (Rack Unit) form factor, optimizing space efficiency in data centers or wiring closets. In terms of performance, the device boasts a forwarding bandwidth of 32 Gbps and a forwarding rate of 38.7 million packets per second (Mpps), ensuring swift data transfer across the network. It is equipped with 128 MB of DRAM and 32 MB of flash memory, providing adequate storage and processing power for network operations. The switch can support up to 12,000 MAC addresses, facilitating a large number of connected devices. It also supports up to 11,000 unicast routes and up to 1,000 IGMP groups and multicast routes, making it suitable for complex routing tasks. This switch is capable of handling jumbo frames up to 9018 bytes, with an MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) of up to 9000 bytes, improving network efficiency by allowing larger packets. The system's indicators include per-port status LEDs and system status LEDs, providing at-a-glance information about network activity and system health. Physical dimensions of the Cisco WS-C3560G-24TS-E are 1.73 inches in height, 17.5 inches in width, and 14.9 inches in depth, with a weight of 12 lbs. Its MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) is rated at 230,700 hours, indicating a high level of reliability. The device operates quietly with an acoustic noise level of 42 dBA, making it suitable for office environments. For environmental tolerance, the switch operates within a temperature range of 0 °C to 45 °C and can be stored between -25 °C and 70 °C. It is designed to function in a relative humidity range of 10% to 85% noncondensing and at altitudes up to 10,000 feet, with storage altitude extending up to 15,000 feet. Key highlights include: - 24 Ethernet ports and 2 SFP based Gigabit Ethernet ports, offering flexible connectivity options. - High forwarding bandwidth and rate (32 Gbps and 38.7 Mpps), ensuring efficient data processing and transfer. - Comprehensive environmental tolerance, with operational flexibility in varied temperature, humidity, and altitude conditions. This switch is designed for organizations that require reliable, high-speed networking capability with advanced features for efficient data handling and security.
