Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3560X-24P-E offers 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports within a 1 RU form factor, catering to high-density deployments while ensuring efficient power distribution with its 715 WAC power supply. With a switching fabric of 160 Gbps and a forwarding rate of 65.5 Mpps, it supports high-speed data processing, though its DRAM and flash memory capacities (256 MB and 64 MB, respectively) may limit advanced feature utilization and future software upgrades. Additionally, the switch's extensive support for VLANs, SVIs, and security features makes it versatile for complex network configurations, but the operational temperature range and humidity specifications necessitate a controlled environment for optimal performance.


The Cisco WS-C3560X-24P-E is a 24-port Ethernet switch designed to support a wide range of networking needs with its 10/100/1000 Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) ports. It is equipped with a 715 WAC power supply and is built in a compact 1 rack unit (RU) form factor, making it suitable for space-constrained environments. This switch is part of the Cisco 3560-X series, known for its reliability and performance in enterprise networking environments. At the core of the Cisco WS-C3560X-24P-E is a feature set named IP Services, which provides advanced layer 3 routing capabilities. This makes the switch not only suitable for basic networking tasks but also capable of handling complex enterprise networks with dynamic routing and IP services. The switch's performance is highlighted by its forwarding rate of 65.5 million packets per second (Mpps) and a switching fabric capacity of 160 gigabits per second (Gbps), ensuring efficient data handling and transfer across the network. The hardware specifications include 256 MB of DRAM and 64 MB of flash memory, providing sufficient memory resources for the switch's operations and firmware. It supports up to 1005 total VLANs with 4K VLAN IDs, allowing for extensive network segmentation and management. Additionally, the switch can manage up to 1K total Switch Virtual Interfaces (SVIs), offering ample capacity for routing between VLANs.
  • Jumbo frames support up to 9216 bytes, facilitating the efficient transfer of large data packets across the network.
  • The switch can handle up to 468 total routed ports per stack, offering scalability and flexibility in network design.
  • It supports 6K unicast MAC addresses, 1K IGMP groups and multicast routes, and 8K unicast routes, ensuring comprehensive coverage for network hosts and traffic routing.
Security is a paramount concern for any network, and the Cisco WS-C3560X-24P-E addresses this with support for 1K security access control entries (ACEs) and VLANs, providing robust options for securing network access and traffic. The switch's size of 1.75 x 17.5 x 18.0 inches allows for easy placement in any standard equipment rack, and its mean time between failures (MTBF) of 181,370 hours demonstrates the product's reliability. Operating conditions are flexible, with an acceptable temperature range from -5 °C to 45 °C and a relative humidity tolerance of 5% to 95% (noncondensing), ensuring the switch can perform in a variety of environments. This adaptability, combined with the switch's comprehensive feature set and high-performance specifications, makes the Cisco WS-C3560X-24P-E an excellent choice for businesses looking to deploy a reliable, high-capacity network infrastructure.
