Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3560X-48PF-S switch offers 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, providing ample connectivity options for various devices while supporting power over Ethernet Plus for efficient device powering. With a switching fabric of 160 Gbps and a forwarding rate of 101.2 Mpps, it ensures high-speed data processing and transmission, suitable for demanding network environments. However, its DRAM and flash memory capacities are limited to 256 MB and 64 MB, respectively, which may constrain advanced network operations and future feature expansions.


The Cisco WS-C3560X-48PF-S is a dedicated networking hardware designed for enterprise level applications, offering a comprehensive suite of features to meet the demands of complex networks. This device comes equipped with 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, supporting a wide range of connected devices while providing Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) capabilities to ensure that connected devices such as VoIP phones, wireless access points, and surveillance cameras receive power directly through the network cables, thereby reducing the need for additional power supplies or outlets. At the core of its performance, the switch features a power supply rated at 1100 WAC, ensuring adequate power for both the switch's operations and the PoE+ devices connected to it. It is designed in a compact 1 RU form factor, making it suitable for rack mounting in space-constrained environments. The hardware is configured with the IP Base feature set, which includes basic routing capabilities and supports enhanced Layer 2 features. The Cisco WS-C3560X-48PF-S boasts a forwarding rate of 101.2 million packets per second (Mpps) and a switching fabric capacity of 160 Gbps, ensuring high-speed data processing and transfer across the network. It is equipped with 256 MB of DRAM and 64 MB of flash memory, facilitating smooth operation and sufficient storage for the network operating system and configurations. This model supports a comprehensive range of VLANs, with up to 1005 total VLANs and 4K VLAN IDs, enabling segmentation of the network for improved security and performance. Additionally, it can handle up to 1K total switched virtual interfaces (SVIs), enhancing its routing capabilities. The switch also supports jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, beneficial for optimizing network performance by allowing larger packets to be sent, reducing the overall number of packets transmitted. Other notable specifications include: - Support for up to 468 total routed ports per stack. - A capacity for 6K unicast MAC addresses. - Ability to handle 1K IGMP groups and multicast routes. - Support for 8K unicast routes, including 6K directly connected hosts and 2K indirect routes. - Security Access Control Entries (ACEs) up to 1K. In terms of durability and reliability, the switch has a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 149,594 hours, showcasing its reliability over extended periods. It operates efficiently within a temperature range from -5 °C to 45 °C and can withstand relative humidity levels from 5% to 95% (noncondensing), ensuring stable performance under various environmental conditions. The Cisco WS-C3560X-48PF-S measures 1.75 x 17.5 x 19.5 inches, making it a compact solution for network infrastructure. This device is engineered not only to meet today's networking demands but also to accommodate future network expansions, making it a valuable investment for growing businesses seeking to enhance their network's efficiency, reliability, and security.
