Product Review

The Cisco WS-C2960L-24TS-LL switch offers 24 Ethernet ports and 4 1G SFP uplinks, catering to medium-sized network environments requiring high-speed connectivity and uplink flexibility. The fanless design and compact dimensions (1.73 x 9.45 x 17.5 in.) make it suitable for quiet office settings and space-constrained areas. However, the limited forwarding bandwidth of 28 Gbps for 1G and the relatively modest CPU and DRAM specifications may not meet the demands of networks with intensive data processing or high-speed requirements.


The Cisco WS-C2960L-24TS-LL is a Layer 2 switch that provides efficient and reliable network connectivity for medium-sized enterprise networks. This model includes 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports and 4 x 1G SFP uplinks, accommodating a wide range of wired connections for devices and network segments. Its fanless design ensures quiet operation, making it suitable for office environments where noise reduction is valued. At the core of the WS-C2960L-24TS-LL is an ARMv7 CPU running at 800 MHz, supported by 512 MB of DRAM and 256 MB of flash memory. This hardware configuration ensures smooth processing of network commands and efficient handling of traffic, even in busier environments. The switch's forwarding bandwidth reaches 28 Gbps when operating at 1G speeds, and its switching bandwidth doubles to 56 Gbps, facilitating swift data transfer across the network. Security and network management are enhanced through the support for up to 16,000 unicast MAC addresses, and the device is capable of managing both IPv4 and IPv6 routes efficiently—with 512 IPv4 unicast direct routes and 414 IPv6 unicast direct routes. It also supports 256 IPv4 unicast indirect routes and 128 IPv6 unicast indirect routes, providing flexibility and scalability in network design. The WS-C2960L-24TS-LL excels in multicast routing, with support for up to 1024 IPv4 multicast routes and IGMP groups, ensuring efficient distribution of multicast traffic across the network. For security, the switch can handle 384 IPv4/MAC security access control entries (ACEs) and 256 IPv6 security ACEs, offering robust access control and threat mitigation capabilities. Network segmentation is facilitated through support for up to 256 active VLANs, with a pool of 4094 VLAN IDs available, allowing for extensive network organization and isolation. The switch can maintain up to 64 instances of Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) to prevent network loops and ensure resilience. Additionally, it supports up to 4 SPAN sessions for network monitoring and troubleshooting. For networks requiring the transmission of large data packets, the WS-C2960L-24TS-LL supports jumbo Ethernet frames up to 10,240 bytes, enhancing performance for high-bandwidth applications. Its mean time between failures (MTBF) is rated at over 2.4 million hours, indicating high reliability and reduced downtime.
  • Dimensions: 1.73 x 9.45 x 17.5 in., fitting standard rack mounts and ensuring easy integration into existing network setups.
  • Weight: 6.04 lbs., lightweight and easy to install by a single person.
  • Fanless design: Offers silent operation, ideal for noise-sensitive environments.
Overall, the Cisco WS-C2960L-24TS-LL combines high-performance hardware with extensive feature support, making it a versatile choice for organizations looking to enhance their network infrastructure with a switch that balances functionality, scalability, and reliability.
