Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3650-48PQ-L switch offers a solid solution for medium-sized networks with its 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports and four 10G uplink ports, addressing the need for high-speed connectivity and Power over Ethernet. However, it comes with the LAN Base feature set, which might limit advanced network services and security features that are necessary for more complex network environments. Additionally, its stacking capability, with a bandwidth of 160 Gbps, allows for scalability and redundancy, but the optional nature of stacking modules adds to the overall cost for those requiring a unified network stack.


The Cisco WS-C3650-48PQ-L is a versatile switch designed for enterprise networks, offering both standalone and optional stacking functionality. This device is engineered to cater to a wide array of networking requirements, providing enhanced efficiency and connectivity. At its core, the switch features 48 Ethernet ports that support Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) with a power supply of 640 WAC, ensuring that connected devices such as IP phones and wireless access points receive both data connectivity and power through a single cable. This not only simplifies the network infrastructure but also reduces operational costs. The addition of 4x10G uplink ports enhances its capacity for high-speed connectivity and data transfer, making it an ideal choice for environments requiring high bandwidth. The Cisco WS-C3650-48PQ-L is designed to fit in a single rack unit (1 RU), optimizing space without compromising performance. With a switching capacity of 392 Gbps and a stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps, this switch is capable of handling large volumes of data, making it suitable for growing businesses. Its LAN Base feature set provides a solid foundation of networking features to support a variety of applications. Key hardware specifications include: - DRAM and Flash Memory: Both set at 4 GB, facilitating smooth operation and storage of the operating system along with configurations and files. - MAC Addresses, IPv4 Routes, and FNF Entries: Supports up to 32,000 MAC addresses, 24,000 IPv4 routes, and 48,000 Flexible NetFlow (FNF) entries, enabling efficient network management and security. - VLAN IDs and SVIs: Supports up to 4094 VLAN IDs and 1000 switched virtual interfaces (SVIs), allowing for extensive network segmentation and efficient management of broadcast domains. The switch also excels in supporting wireless networking, capable of handling up to 25 access points per switch or stack and 1000 wireless clients, offering substantial wireless bandwidth of up to 40 Gbps. This makes it highly effective in environments with a significant wireless footprint. Additionally, it can manage up to 64 WLANs per switch, facilitating diverse and scalable wireless deployments. With a forwarding rate of 130.95 million packets per second (Mpps) and the ability to support jumbo frames of up to 9198 bytes, the Cisco WS-C3650-48PQ-L ensures efficient data processing and transfer over the network. The switch is also designed for reliability, with a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 383,760 hours, indicating a high level of durability and stability. Weighing 16.75 lbs, this switch combines compactness with high performance, making it a suitable choice for various networking environments. The comprehensive feature set and advanced hardware specifications of the Cisco WS-C3650-48PQ-L make it a powerful tool for businesses seeking to enhance their network infrastructure with a reliable, high-capacity switch.
