Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-S offers a solid selection of features for network infrastructure, with 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports and dual 10G uplink ports, providing high-speed connectivity and power for devices. With a stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps and the capability to handle up to 32,000 MAC addresses, 24,000 IPv4 routes, and 48,000 FNF entries, it supports extensive network demands. However, its IP Base feature set may limit advanced routing capabilities, and the optional stacking might require additional investment for those looking to scale their network infrastructure.


The Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-S is a versatile networking device designed to provide a high-density, fully scalable, and secure networking solution for enterprise networks. This switch is capable of both standalone operation and optional stacking, offering flexibility for network design and expansion. It features 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports with Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) capability, allowing for direct power supply to connected devices such as VoIP phones and wireless access points, thereby reducing the need for additional power cables and infrastructure. For high-speed connectivity to the network backbone or other switches, it includes 2x10G uplink ports. The device is powered by a 1025 WAC power supply and occupies a compact form factor of 1 rack unit (RU), making it suitable for space-constrained environments. The switch runs on the IP Base feature set, providing essential features required for both Layer 2 and basic Layer 3 routing. The stacking capability of the Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-S enhances network resilience and scalability, supporting a stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps. This allows multiple switches to be interconnected, functioning as a single logical unit, and facilitating simplified management. The switch supports a large number of MAC addresses (32,000), IPv4 routes (24,000), and Flexible NetFlow (FNF) entries (48,000), enabling comprehensive control and monitoring of network traffic. Memory capacity is ample, with 4 GB of DRAM and 4 GB of flash memory, ensuring smooth operation and sufficient storage for the operating system and applications. The switch can accommodate up to 4094 VLAN IDs and 1000 switched virtual interfaces (SVIs), providing extensive network segmentation capabilities. Support for jumbo frames up to 9198 bytes improves network performance by allowing larger packets to be processed more efficiently.
  • Supports up to 208 routed ports per stack, enhancing the scalability of Layer 3 routing capabilities.
  • Can manage up to 25 access points per switch or stack, and up to 1000 wireless clients, facilitating extensive wireless network deployments.
  • Delivers up to 40 Gbps of wireless bandwidth per switch, ensuring high-performance connectivity for wireless devices.
With a forwarding rate of 104.16 million packets per second (Mpps), the Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-S ensures high-speed data processing and minimal latency. The mean time between failures (MTBF) is estimated at 383,760 hours, indicating a reliable hardware platform. Weighing 17.20 lbs and measuring 1.73 x 17.5 x 19.125 inches (H x W x D), the switch is designed for easy deployment in standard equipment racks. In summary, the Cisco WS-C3650-48FD-S is a feature-rich, scalable, and efficient solution for enterprise networks seeking to enhance their connectivity, power management, and network performance.
