Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3650-24PS-E supports 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports and four 1G uplink ports, catering to environments requiring high power and data throughput. With a switching capacity of 92 Gbps and the capability to stack up to 160 Gbps, it ensures efficient data handling for medium-sized networks. However, its reliance on traditional 1G uplink ports might limit bandwidth for applications demanding higher throughput, making it less ideal for future-proofing against increasing data demands.


The Cisco WS-C3650-24PS-E is a versatile network switch designed to provide efficient and reliable connectivity for medium to large-scale enterprise networks. This model is a standalone unit that can optionally be configured for stacking, enhancing its scalability and flexibility to meet growing network demands. Equipped with 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, the WS-C3650-24PS-E allows for the direct connection and power supply to a wide range of network devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and surveillance cameras without the need for additional power cables. This feature simplifies the network infrastructure and reduces operational costs. Additionally, the switch includes four 1G uplink ports, enabling high-speed connectivity to the network backbone or other switches. The hardware is powered by a 640 WAC power supply and is designed to fit in a single rack unit (1 RU), making it an efficient choice for space-constrained server rooms. It supports the IP Services feature set, offering advanced layer 3 features, including IPv4 and IPv6 routing, multicast routing, policy-based routing, and Quality of Service (QoS) for optimizing network traffic. Key performance metrics of the WS-C3650-24PS-E include a switching capacity of 92 Gbps and a stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps. This ensures high-speed data processing and transfer rates across the network, even under heavy load conditions. The switch can handle up to 32,000 MAC addresses and 24,000 IPv4 routes, making it capable of supporting large-scale deployments.
  • DRAM of 4 GB and Flash Memory of 2 GB provide ample storage for the operating system, applications, and configurations, ensuring smooth operation and quick boot times.
  • Support for up to 4094 VLAN IDs and 1000 SVIs enables segmenting the network into multiple virtual networks for enhanced security and improved traffic management.
  • Jumbo frames of up to 9198 bytes are supported, facilitating the efficient transfer of large data packets and reducing the processing load on the network.
The switch's ability to support up to 208 routed ports per stack, 25 access points per switch or stack, and 1000 wireless clients per switch or stack makes it an ideal solution for organizations with a dense wireless user base. It can manage up to 64 WLANs per switch and offers up to 20 Gbps of wireless bandwidth per switch, accommodating high-density wireless environments seamlessly. With a forwarding rate of 41.66 Mpps (million packets per second), the WS-C3650-24PS-E ensures rapid data processing, essential for applications requiring real-time response. The unit is built for longevity, with a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 528,280 hours, indicating a reliable performance over an extended period. Weighing 16 lbs, the switch is relatively lightweight, considering its comprehensive feature set and capabilities. This makes it manageable for installation and maintenance tasks. In summary, the Cisco WS-C3650-24PS-E is a highly capable switch designed for organizations seeking a scalable, efficient, and reliable networking solution.
