Product Review

The Cisco WS-C2960L-8TS-LL switch offers a compact and efficient solution for small-scale networking needs, with 8 Ethernet ports supporting 10/100/1000 speeds and 2 1G SFP uplink ports, catering to both copper and fiber connectivity. Despite its small size, it delivers a forwarding bandwidth of 10 Gbps and a switching bandwidth of 20 Gbps, ensuring efficient data handling. However, the limited number of Ethernet and uplink ports might not meet the requirements of larger network environments, making it more suitable for small offices or branch locations.


The Cisco WS-C2960L-8TS-LL is a Layer 2 switch designed to provide efficient and reliable network connectivity for small to medium-sized enterprise branch offices and campus networks. This model comes with eight 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports and two 1G Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) uplinks, offering a balance between high-speed data transfer and connectivity options. The switch is engineered to support a wide range of networking features, making it a versatile component in any network infrastructure. One of the key features of the WS-C2960L-8TS-LL is its fanless design, which ensures silent operation, making it ideal for noise-sensitive environments such as open office spaces, libraries, and retail outlets. The compact size of 1.73 x 8.45 x 10.56 inches and a weight of just 3.33 lbs allow for easy placement on desktops or shelves, providing flexibility in deployment. At the heart of the Cisco WS-C2960L-8TS-LL is an ARMv7 processor running at 800 MHz, complemented by 512 MB of DRAM and 256 MB of flash memory. This hardware configuration supports the switch's advanced networking capabilities and ensures smooth operation under varying loads. The forwarding bandwidth of 10 Gbps and switching bandwidth of 20 Gbps enable the switch to handle large volumes of data efficiently, making it suitable for high-demand applications. The Cisco WS-C2960L-8TS-LL supports up to 16,000 unicast MAC addresses, providing ample capacity for medium-sized networks. It also offers extensive routing capabilities, including 512 IPv4 unicast direct routes and 256 IPv4 unicast indirect routes, along with 414 IPv6 unicast direct routes and 128 IPv6 unicast indirect routes. For multicast routing, the switch supports 1024 IPv4 multicast routes and IGMP groups. Security is a critical consideration in network design, and the WS-C2960L-8TS-LL addresses this need with support for 384 IPv4/MAC security Access Control Entries (ACEs) and 256 IPv6 security ACEs. The switch also supports up to 256 active VLANs from a pool of 4094 VLAN IDs, allowing for extensive network segmentation and security. Other notable features of the WS-C2960L-8TS-LL include:
  • Support for jumbo Ethernet frames up to 10,240 bytes, enhancing data transfer efficiency for large data packets.
  • An impressive Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of over 2.4 million hours, indicating high reliability and reduced downtime.
  • Capability to host up to 64 Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) instances and 4 Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) sessions, facilitating advanced network monitoring and optimization.
In conclusion, the Cisco WS-C2960L-8TS-LL is a compact, fanless switch that offers a comprehensive set of features for efficient data transfer, security, and network management.
