Product Review

The Cisco WS-C2960X-48LPS-L switch offers 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces and four SFP uplink interfaces, supporting a wide range of connectivity options for diverse networking requirements. With a forwarding bandwidth of 108 Gbps and a PoE power budget of 370W, it adequately meets the needs of medium-sized networks requiring efficient traffic management and power distribution for PoE devices. However, the switch is equipped with only a LAN Base feature set and 128 MB of flash memory, which may limit advanced feature deployment and storage capacity for larger, more complex network environments.


The Cisco WS-C2960X-48LPS-L is a stackable Ethernet switch designed for operational efficiency and scalability. This model is equipped with 48 Ethernet interfaces supporting speeds of 10/100/1000 Mbps, making it suitable for a wide range of data-intensive applications. Additionally, it features four SFP uplink interfaces that facilitate high-speed connectivity between devices or to the network backbone. One of the key attributes of this switch is its Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability, with an available power budget of 370 W. This allows for the direct power supply to connected devices such as VoIP phones, wireless access points, and surveillance cameras, eliminating the need for separate power sources and simplifying deployments. The hardware specifications reveal a solid foundation for network reliability and performance: - Flash memory of 128 MB and DRAM of 512 MB support the advanced features and operation of the LAN Base feature set. - The forwarding bandwidth of 108 Gbps and switching bandwidth of 216 Gbps ensure high-speed data processing and transfer across the network. - A high forwarding rate of 107.1 million packets per second (Mpps) demonstrates the switch's capability to handle concurrent data streams efficiently. In terms of durability, the Cisco WS-C2960X-48LPS-L boasts an MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) of 276,870 hours, indicating a reliable operation over extended periods. Furthermore, the switch supports up to 1023 active VLANs and provides 4096 VLAN IDs, offering flexible network segmentation and improved security. The switch is powered by an APM86392 600 MHz dual-core CPU, which manages the operations smoothly and ensures stable performance under various network loads. For configuration and management, the switch includes both USB (Type B) and Ethernet (RJ-45) console ports, along with a USB (Type A) storage interface for external flash storage, catering to different setup preferences and backup requirements. Network management is facilitated through a dedicated 10/100 Mbps Ethernet interface, allowing for remote monitoring and configuration. The switch also supports MTU-L3 packets up to 9198 bytes and jumbo frames up to 9216 bytes, beneficial for optimizing network performance and reducing overhead in large data transfers. Operating within a short-term temperature range from -5 °C to 55 °C at sea level, the Cisco WS-C2960X-48LPS-L is built to sustain productivity under various environmental conditions. Measuring 1.75 inches in height, 14.5 inches in width, and 17.5 inches in depth, and weighing 12.9 lbs., this compact switch is designed for easy integration into a range of networking environments. In summary, the Cisco WS-C2960X-48LPS-L combines essential hardware features with advanced networking capabilities to deliver a high-performance, scalable solution for mid-sized networks. Its comprehensive set of features makes it an ideal choice for businesses looking to improve their network efficiency and reliability.
