Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3560X-48P-S switch offers 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, accommodating high-power devices with a 715 WAC power supply, within a compact 1 RU form factor. With a forwarding rate of 101.2 Mpps and a switching fabric of 160 Gbps, it supports efficient data processing and high-speed connectivity. However, its limitations include a relatively small DRAM and Flash memory capacity of 256 MB and 64 MB, respectively, which may affect performance in highly demanding network environments.


The Cisco WS-C3560X-48P-S is a high-performance switch designed to support a wide range of networking needs. It features 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, accommodating various devices while providing power over Ethernet to support IP phones, wireless access points, and other PoE-compatible devices. This switch is housed in a 1 RU form factor, making it suitable for space-constrained environments. At the core of its hardware specifications, the Cisco WS-C3560X-48P-S comes equipped with a 715 WAC power supply, ensuring sufficient power for both the switch's operation and the PoE capabilities across all ports. The device operates using the IP Base feature set, which includes advanced quality of service (QoS), rate limiting, access control lists (ACLs), and basic static and Routing Information Protocol (RIP) routing functionality. This switch boasts a forwarding rate of 101.2 million packets per second (Mpps) and a switching fabric capacity of 160 Gbps, ensuring efficient data processing and high-speed data transfer across the network. To support the operational needs, it is equipped with 256 MB of DRAM and 64 MB of flash memory, facilitating smooth and reliable performance. Here are three key hardware specifications: - Total VLANs supported are 1005, with VLAN IDs up to 4K, allowing for extensive network segmentation and improved security. - The switch supports jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, enhancing data transfer efficiency for large data packets. - It offers a high mean time between failures (MTBF) of 149,594 hours, ensuring reliability and reduced downtime. Further enhancing its capabilities, the Cisco WS-C3560X-48P-S supports up to 1005 VLANs and 4K VLAN IDs, providing flexibility in network design and segmentation. The switch allows for up to 1K total Switched Virtual Interfaces (SVIs) and can handle jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, enabling the efficient processing of large data packets. In terms of routing and security, the switch can manage up to 468 total routed ports per stack, and supports 6K unicast MAC addresses. It is capable of handling 1K IGMP groups and multicast routes, 8K unicast routes, and directly connected hosts, and 2K indirect routes. For security, it allows for up to 1K security access control entries (ACEs) and supports 1K VLANs. The physical dimensions of the Cisco WS-C3560X-48P-S are 1.75 x 17.5 x 18.0 inches, and it operates within a temperature range of -5 °C to 45 °C with a relative humidity of 5% to 95% (noncondensing), ensuring durability under various environmental conditions. In summary, the Cisco WS-C3560X-48P-S switch is a high-capacity, power-over-Ethernet switch designed for enterprise-grade networks.
