Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3850-24P-L switch offers 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, catering well to environments requiring power over Ethernet with a forwarding rate of 68.4 Mpps, ensuring efficient data processing. However, its LAN Base feature set may limit advanced network configuration and routing capabilities, potentially necessitating an upgrade for more complex network requirements. With a power supply of 715 WAC and support for network modules like C3850-NM-4-1G and C3850-NM-2-10G, it provides flexibility in connectivity, although the operational noise level of 44 dBA at 30 °C could be a consideration in quieter office environments.


The Cisco WS-C3850-24P-L is a stackable enterprise-level switch that delivers comprehensive network connectivity and security features. Designed for efficient operational simplicity, the switch features 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, catering to a wide range of deployment scenarios and power requirements. This model is part of the Cisco Catalyst 3850 series, known for its integrated wireless controller functionality and support for a multitude of network modules. Key to its design is the inclusion of a 715 WAC power supply, ensuring ample power for the switch itself and connected devices. With a form factor of 1 RU, the device is compact enough for space-constrained environments while providing the scalability needed for growing networks. Its stackable nature allows for ease of network expansion and simplified management. The hardware supports two types of network modules: C3850-NM-4-1G and C3850-NM-2-10G, providing flexibility in uplink speeds and connections. This versatility ensures the switch can adapt to changing network demands without requiring a complete system overhaul. The device boasts a forwarding rate of 68.4 Mpps, ensuring high-speed data processing and transfer across the network. This capability is critical in environments where data throughput and latency are of paramount importance. Physical dimensions of the switch are 1.75 x 17.5 x 17.7 inches, and it weighs 16.3 lbs, making it relatively easy to handle and install. It has an impressive MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) of 269,450 hours, indicating a reliable performance over time. Operating conditions for the Cisco WS-C3850-24P-L are flexible, with a temperature range of -5 °C to 45 °C and the ability to function up to 5000 ft altitude with AC power supply or 6000 ft with DC power supply. This resilience ensures consistent operation in a variety of environmental conditions. Humidity tolerance ranges from 10% to 95% (noncondensing), accommodating most working environments.
  • Minimum and maximum storage temperatures are set at -40 °C and 70 °C, respectively, with a storage altitude limit of 15,000 ft.
  • Vibration resistance is specified at 0.41 g from 3 to 500 Hz for operating conditions and 1.12 g from 3 to 500 Hz for non-operating conditions, highlighting the switch's durability against physical disturbances.
  • Noise levels are maintained at 44 dBA at 30 °C, ensuring a quiet operational environment.
The device complies with RoHS-5 for environmental safety and is certified by several safety standards including UL 60950-1 Second Edition and EN 60950-1 Second Edition, among others.
