Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3650-48PQ-S switch offers a substantial 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports with an additional 4x10G uplink ports, catering to environments requiring high-density access with Power over Ethernet for devices. However, while it boasts a considerable switching capacity of 392 Gbps and a stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps, it is limited by its IP Base feature set, which may require an upgrade for advanced routing features. Additionally, its power supply of 640 WAC, while sufficient for many applications, might be a constraint in scenarios demanding higher PoE power across all ports.


The Cisco WS-C3650-48PQ-S is a versatile network switch designed to meet the demands of a variety of environments, from mid-sized offices to large enterprises. This device offers a blend of efficiency and power, making it a suitable choice for organizations looking to optimize their network performance. The switch comes as a standalone unit but supports optional stacking for increased scalability and flexibility. At the core, this model features 48 Ethernet ports that support Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), providing both network connectivity and power to connected devices through a single cable. This eliminates the need for additional power supplies and simplifies deployments of devices like IP cameras, VoIP phones, and wireless access points. The switch also includes four 10G uplink ports, enabling high-speed connections to other network devices or aggregation layers for enhanced bandwidth and throughput. The power supply of the WS-C3650-48PQ-S is rated at 640 WAC, ensuring ample power for both the switch operations and the PoE+ capabilities across all ports. It is designed to fit in a single rack unit (1 RU), optimizing space in crowded server rooms or network closets. Key hardware specifications include: - Switching Capacity: 392 Gbps, ensuring smooth handling of data traffic across the network. - Stacking Bandwidth: 160 Gbps, providing high-speed backplane for stacking multiple units. - Forwarding Rate: 130.95 Mpps, offering fast data processing and transmission. In terms of network management and scalability, the switch supports up to 32,000 MAC addresses and 24,000 IPv4 routes, accommodating large-scale deployments and complex network topologies. The inclusion of 48,000 Flexible NetFlow (FNF) entries enables comprehensive visibility into network traffic for better monitoring and management. The switch is equipped with 4 GB of DRAM and 4 GB of flash memory, facilitating smooth operation and ample storage for the operating system and applications. It supports up to 4094 VLAN IDs and 1000 Switched Virtual Interfaces (SVIs), providing extensive network segmentation and virtualization capabilities. For networks supporting voice, video, and wireless services, the Cisco WS-C3650-48PQ-S can manage up to 25 access points per switch or stack and support 1000 wireless clients, ensuring robust wireless coverage and connectivity. It also supports up to 64 Wireless LANs (WLANs) and offers up to 40 Gbps of wireless bandwidth per switch, accommodating high-density wireless environments. Other notable specifications include the support for jumbo frames up to 9198 bytes, enhancing the efficiency of large data transfers, and the ability to route up to 208 ports per stack, providing flexibility in network design and deployment. The device boasts an impressive mean time between failures (MTBF) of 383,760 hours, highlighting its reliability. Weighing 16.75 lbs, the Cisco WS-C3650-48PQ-S is a testament to the combination of performance, scalability, and reliability, making it a strong contender for businesses looking to upgrade or expand their network infrastructure.
