Product Review

The Cisco WS-C2960L-16TS-LL offers 16 Ethernet ports and two 1G SFP uplinks, supporting a variety of network demands with a forwarding bandwidth of 18 Gbps and switching bandwidth of 36 Gbps, suitable for small to medium-sized network environments. Its fanless design and compact dimensions (1.73 x 9.45 x 10.56 in.) ensure quiet operation and ease of placement in space-constrained areas. However, the switch is limited by its ARMv7 800 MHz CPU and 512 MB DRAM, which may hinder performance in highly demanding, data-intensive scenarios.


The Cisco WS-C2960L-16TS-LL is a network switch designed for operational efficiency and reliability in small to medium-sized network environments. This model incorporates 16 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports and 2 x 1G Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) uplinks, providing a flexible interface range for various connectivity needs. At its core, the switch is powered by an ARMv7 processor running at 800 MHz, supported by 512 MB of DRAM and 256 MB of flash memory, ensuring swift data processing and ample storage for firmware and network configurations. A key feature of this device is its fanless design, which not only reduces noise levels, making it ideal for quiet office environments but also minimizes moving parts, contributing to its impressive mean time between failures (MTBF) of over 2.4 million hours. This longevity is essential for businesses relying on continuous network availability. In terms of performance, the Cisco WS-C2960L-16TS-LL boasts an 18 Gbps forwarding bandwidth and a 36 Gbps switching bandwidth, allowing for efficient data flow and management of network traffic. It supports up to 16,000 unicast MAC addresses, ensuring adequate capacity for device connectivity within the network. Routing capabilities include support for 512 IPv4 unicast direct routes and 256 IPv4 unicast indirect routes, alongside 414 IPv6 unicast direct routes and 128 IPv6 unicast indirect routes, facilitating versatile and scalable network configurations. The switch also excels in multicast routing, with capacity for 1024 IPv4 multicast routes and IGMP groups, accommodating extensive multicast configurations. Security is addressed through the provision of 384 IPv4/MAC and 256 IPv6 security access control entries (ACEs), enabling detailed and granular access control policies to safeguard the network against unauthorized access. For network segmentation and management, the device supports up to 256 active VLANs from a pool of 4094 VLAN IDs, offering vast flexibility in network planning and isolation. It also handles up to 64 instances of Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) for building loop-free network topologies. Network monitoring and troubleshooting are facilitated by the capability to establish up to 4 Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) sessions, providing visibility into network traffic for analysis and diagnostics. The Cisco WS-C2960L-16TS-LL is designed to handle large frames up to 10,240 bytes, enabling the transmission of jumbo frames for improved performance in data-intensive applications. Its compact size of 1.73 x 9.45 x 10.56 inches and weight of 3.41 lbs allow for easy installation in space-constrained environments, without compromising on port availability or network functionality. Key hardware specifications include: - 16 Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports and 2 x 1G SFP uplinks - Fanless operation for quiet and reliable performance - High MTBF for prolonged operational life In summary, the Cisco WS-C2960L-16TS-LL combines essential networking features with reliable hardware, presenting a balanced solution for businesses seeking to enhance their network infrastructure with a manageable, high-performance switch.
