Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3850-24T-L switch offers 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports with a LAN Base feature set, suitable for various network infrastructures, and supports stackability with a forwarding rate of 68.4 Mpps, enhancing operational efficiency. However, its power supply is limited to 350 WAC, potentially restricting the addition of high-power devices without external power solutions. Additionally, the operating temperature range and noise specifications indicate moderate environmental tolerance and potential noise concerns in quiet office environments, respectively.


The Cisco WS-C3850-24T-L is a network switch designed to enhance workplace productivity by offering reliable connectivity and network performance. This model features 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports, making it suitable for a variety of networking environments. Its LAN Base feature set provides essential layer 2 and basic layer 3 capabilities, enabling efficient network operation and management. With a power supply rated at 350 WAC and a compact 1 Rack Unit (RU) form factor, this switch is engineered for easy deployment in spaces where rack space is at a premium. The device is also stackable, allowing for the integration of multiple units to scale network capacity and streamline management. The Cisco WS-C3850-24T-L supports additional network modules, specifically the C3850-NM-4-1G and C3850-NM-2-10G, offering flexibility in network configuration and expansion capabilities. Its forwarding rate of 68.4 Mpps (million packets per second) ensures efficient data processing and transfer across the network. Dimensions and weight are practical for various installation scenarios, with a size of 1.75 x 17.5 x 17.7 inches and a weight of 15.9 lbs. This makes it a suitable option for both small and large scale operations. The Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) is 303,230 hours, indicating a reliable and durable hardware design. Environmental conditions are critical for the optimal operation of network hardware. The Cisco WS-C3850-24T-L operates within a temperature range of -5 °C to 45 °C. It can function at altitudes up to 5000 ft with an AC power supply and up to 6000 ft with a DC power supply. Humidity levels are maintained at 10% to 95% (noncondensing) for operating conditions, and storage temperatures range from -40 °C to 70 °C, with a storage altitude limit of 15,000 ft. Vibration resistance is another key feature, with operating vibration rated at 0.41 g from 3 to 500 Hz and non-operating vibration at 1.12 g from 3 to 500 Hz. Noise specifications indicate a sound level of 44 dBA at 30 °C, ensuring quiet operation that is suitable for office environments. Compliance and certifications include RoHS-5 for restricted hazardous substances, and safety certifications such as UL 60950-1 Second Edition, CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60950-1 Second Edition, EN 60950-1 Second Edition, and IEC 60950-1 Second Edition, ensuring the switch meets international safety standards. Key hardware specifications: -
  • 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports for extensive connectivity.
