Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3650-48FQ-S offers a robust switching capacity of 392 Gbps and a high forwarding rate of 130.95 Mpps, ensuring efficient handling of data across its 48 PoE+ Ethernet ports and four 10G uplink ports. However, its limitation to an IP Base feature set might restrict advanced routing capabilities, which could be a drawback for environments requiring extensive network layer services. Additionally, the switch supports up to 25 access points and 1000 wireless clients per stack, making it suitable for high-density wireless environments, but its initial cost and potential licensing fees for feature upgrades may be considered disadvantages for budget-conscious deployments.


The Cisco WS-C3650-48FQ-S is a versatile and high-capacity switch designed for midsize to large network environments that require a mix of efficiency, scalability, and reliability in handling data. This model stands out for its capability to work as a standalone unit but also offers the option for stacking, providing flexibility in network design and expansion. It features 48 Ethernet ports that support Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), enabling the switch to power devices directly through network cables, thus reducing the need for additional power supplies and simplifying deployments. In terms of connectivity, this switch has 4x10G uplink ports, facilitating high-speed data transfer and connections to other network devices or segments. It operates on a 1025 WAC power supply, ensuring sufficient power for both the switch's operations and the PoE+ functionality across all ports. Designed to fit in a single rack unit (1 RU), it is an efficient choice for data centers or network closets where space is at a premium. Key hardware specifications include a switching capacity of 392 Gbps, which allows for the handling of significant data volumes, ensuring smooth network operations even under heavy load. The stacking bandwidth is notable at 160 Gbps, providing a high-speed interface for stacked configurations. The switch can store up to 32,000 MAC addresses, manage up to 24,000 IPv4 routes, and support 48,000 Flexible NetFlow (FNF) entries, making it capable of sophisticated network traffic management and monitoring. Additional technical specifications highlight its capability to handle extensive network demands: - DRAM and flash memory both sit at 4 GB, facilitating efficient processing and storage of the operating system and configurations. - It supports up to 4094 VLAN IDs and 1000 Switched Virtual Interfaces (SVIs), allowing for extensive network segmentation and efficient traffic management. - Jumbo frames up to 9198 bytes are supported, enhancing data transmission efficiency for large data packets. - The switch can manage up to 208 routed ports per stack, 25 access points per switch or stack, and up to 1000 wireless clients per switch or stack, showcasing its versatility in wired and wireless network environments. - It accommodates 64 WLANs per switch and provides up to 40 Gbps of wireless bandwidth per switch, catering to demanding wireless applications. - The forwarding rate is 130.95 Mpps, and the switch has an impressive Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 383,760 hours, underlining its reliability. - Despite its extensive capabilities, the unit has a compact form factor, weighing in at 17.20 lbs.
