Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3650-48FS-L switch offers a solid feature set with 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports and four 1G uplink ports, supported by a 1025 WAC power supply, making it suitable for mid-sized networks requiring power over Ethernet. Its switching capacity of 176 Gbps and stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps, along with support for up to 32,000 MAC addresses and 24,000 IPv4 routes, ensures efficient handling of traffic and routing. However, the switch is limited by its LAN Base feature set, which may restrict advanced network services and configurations needed for complex enterprise environments.


The Cisco WS-C3650-48FS-L is a versatile switch that delivers comprehensive networking capabilities, tailored for mid-sized enterprise networks. This device offers a blend of performance and efficiency in a 1 rack unit (RU) form factor, making it suitable for a wide range of environments. At its core, the switch features 48 Ethernet ports that support Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), enabling devices such as IP phones and wireless access points to receive power directly through the network cables, thereby reducing the need for additional power supplies and simplifying installations. The inclusion of 4 uplink ports with 1G speed enhances the connectivity options, allowing for higher-speed uplinks or connections to other network devices. The power supply is rated at 1025 watts alternating current (WAC), ensuring sufficient power for both the switch's operation and the PoE+ devices connected to it. Despite its compact size, the switch boasts a substantial switching capacity of 176 gigabits per second (Gbps) and a stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps, facilitating efficient data processing and transfer. With support for up to 32,000 MAC addresses, 24,000 IPv4 routes, and 48,000 Flexible NetFlow (FNF) entries, the switch can handle substantial network traffic and complex routing scenarios. The device is equipped with 4 gigabytes (GB) of DRAM and 2 GB of flash memory, providing ample space for the operating system and network configurations.
  • VLAN IDs: 4094
  • SVIs: 1000
  • Jumbo Frames: 9198 Bytes
The switch supports up to 4094 VLAN IDs, allowing for extensive network segmentation and security. It can also manage up to 1000 switched virtual interfaces (SVIs), facilitating inter-VLAN routing and advanced network configurations. The support for jumbo frames of up to 9198 bytes enhances data transfer efficiency for large data packets. Designed for scalability, the switch can manage up to 208 routed ports per stack, 25 access points per switch or stack, and 1000 wireless clients per switch or stack. This makes it an ideal choice for organizations with growing wireless networks. The wireless bandwidth per switch can reach up to 40 Gbps, accommodating high-density wireless environments. The forwarding rate of 77.37 million packets per second (Mpps) ensures rapid data processing, while the mean time between failures (MTBF) of 383,760 hours demonstrates the switch's reliability. Weighing 17.20 pounds, the switch is relatively lightweight, allowing for easy installation and handling. In conclusion, the Cisco WS-C3650-48FS-L switch combines significant PoE+ port density, high switching and stacking capacity, and advanced network features in a compact form factor. It is engineered to meet the demands of mid-sized enterprise networks, offering both flexibility and reliability for a variety of networking applications.
