Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3560G-48PS-E offers a solid foundation for networks, featuring 48 10/100 Ethernet ports with Power over Ethernet (PoE) support and four SFP Gigabit Ethernet ports, enhancing connectivity options. However, its 128 MB DRAM and 32 MB flash memory may limit performance in highly demanding environments, potentially impacting complex operations and future scalability. Its robust build, including a 1 RU form factor and a MTBF of 147,000 hours, ensures durability and reliable operation within a wide range of temperatures and altitudes, making it suitable for various deployment scenarios.


The Cisco WS-C3560G-48PS-E is a networking switch designed for enterprise level networks, offering a blend of performance, durability, and scalability. This device is equipped with 48 10/100 Ethernet ports with Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability, allowing for the direct power supply to connected devices like VoIP phones and wireless access points, eliminating the need for additional power cables. In addition to these, it features 4 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports for high-speed uplinks or stack interconnections, providing flexibility for network design and expansion. Enclosed in a 1 Rack Unit (RU) form factor, the switch is designed for efficient space utilization in rack installations. It boasts a forwarding bandwidth of 32 Gbps and a forwarding rate of 13.1 million packets per second (Mpps), ensuring swift data processing and transmission across the network. The hardware is supported by 128 MB of DRAM and 32 MB of flash memory, facilitating smooth operation and firmware management. Key hardware specifications include: - MAC address capacity of up to 12,000 entries, supporting large-scale network deployments. - Support for up to 11,000 unicast routes and 1,000 IGMP groups, enhancing routing efficiency and multicast management. - Ability to handle jumbo frames up to 9018 bytes, beneficial for reducing server load and improving data transfer rates across the network. The switch is designed with operational efficiency in mind, featuring per-port status LEDs and system status LEDs for quick diagnostics and monitoring. Its dimensions are 1.73 x 17.5 x 16.1 inches, and it weighs 15.5 pounds, making it compact yet solid for its capabilities. The Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) is rated at 147,000 hours, indicating a reliable operation over extended periods. Noise levels range from 52 to 58 dBA, depending on the operation mode, which is relatively low for a device of its capacity but should be considered when deploying in noise-sensitive environments. The device operates optimally between 0 °C and 45 °C, with a storage temperature range from -25 °C to 70 °C. It can function at a humidity range from 10% to 85% (non-condensing) and at altitudes up to 10,000 feet for operation and 15,000 feet for storage, ensuring resilience under various environmental conditions. In summary, the Cisco WS-C3560G-48PS-E is a versatile and efficient switch that offers a comprehensive set of features suitable for medium to large network environments. With its high port density, PoE capabilities, and Gigabit Ethernet uplinks, it provides a solid foundation for supporting demanding network applications and devices, making it an essential component of any modern network infrastructure.
