Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3650-48FQM-S offers a solid balance between power and performance with its 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports and 4x10G uplink ports, suitable for high-demand network environments. However, its fixed 975 WAC power supply may limit expansion capabilities for networks requiring higher power allocations. Additionally, its 1 RU form factor combined with a switching capacity of 392 Gbps and stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps makes it a space-efficient choice for dense network deployments, but the IP Base feature set might not meet the needs of networks requiring advanced routing capabilities.


The Cisco WS-C3650-48FQM-S is a versatile and high-performance switch designed to meet the demands of a wide range of networking environments. This model is a standalone switch that offers optional stacking, providing flexibility for network design and expansion.
