Product Review

The Cisco WSX6848SFP2TXL is a unique product due to its hardware features. It has two slots for SFP transceivers, allowing users to achieve high-speed connections over any medium. Additionally, it offers simultaneous Quad Small Form Factor Pluggable (QSFP+) connections, providing twice the bandwidth of other solutions and allowing users to exceed 10 Gbps. This makes it ideal for organizations in need of high-speed and reliable connections between multiple locations. Finally, the product is well-suited for energy-efficient networks due to its lower power consumption.


The Cisco WSX6848SFP2TXL is a high-performing Series Catalyst 6500 Switch Fabric providing dense 10 Gigabit Ethernet performance and scalability. With up to 16 line-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in a single slot, this switch fabric provides increased flexibility for deployments of multiple access points and servers. The Cisco WSX6848SFP2TXL features a combination of eight SFP+ and eight ports of RJ-45 connectivity, allowing for rapid deployment and simple scalability. With an aggregate bisection bandwidth of 320 Gbps, this switch fabric provides abundant scalability for various large scale topologies. The separate control plane memory ensures seamless transitions, making the switch fabric highly robust. In terms of power and cooling, the Cisco WSX6848SFP2TXL has up to 1525 Watts operating capability, while consuming just 7W per 10 GE port of idle power. For cooling purposes it has 9 fan bays that are hot swappable and N + 1 redundant fan configurations. It also includes two optional redundant power modules, making it ideal for even the most demanding applications. Overall the Cisco WSX6848SFP2TXL offers high levels of performance in terms of throughput and low latency to handle demanding applications without impacting other traffic in the network. It is also capable of supporting up to four routed VSS, making it an ideal choice for large scale virtualization deployments. Additionally, with its advanced features such as advanced QOS and VLAN configuration capabilities and comprehensive layer 3 routing protocols like OSPFv2/v3, RIPv1/v2, ESRPv6, etc., administrators have a great deal of flexibility in designing their networks.. Finally, the Cisco WSX6848SFP2TXL has several safety features such as ESD contact protections, power monitoring, and power fault protection to ensure complete uptime for critical applications. Its hot swappable components also make it easy to perform maintenance with minimal disruption. All this makes the Cisco WSX6848SFP2TXL an excellent choice for large scale 10 Gigabit Ethernet deployments.
