Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3850-48F-S switch offers 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, providing ample connectivity for high-demand network environments and power to devices directly through Ethernet cables, reducing the need for additional power supplies. With a forwarding rate of 130.95 Mpps and support for network modules (C3850-NM-4-1G, C3850-NM-2-10G, C3850-NM-4-10G), it efficiently manages network traffic and offers flexible uplink options. However, its operating temperature range (-5 °C to 45 °C) and noise specification (44 dBA at 30 °C) may limit placement options in environments sensitive to heat or requiring low noise levels.


The Cisco WS-C3850-48F-S is a network switch designed for enterprise-level networking needs, offering a blend of performance, security, and operational simplicity. This device is equipped with 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports, catering to a variety of devices while providing power over Ethernet to support VoIP phones, wireless access points, and surveillance cameras without the need for additional power supplies. With an IP Base feature set, this switch is optimized for layer 2 switching but also supports some layer 3 routing capabilities out of the box. The 1100 WAC power supply ensures that there is sufficient power for the switch to operate efficiently and to power connected devices. Its 1 RU form factor makes it compact enough for easy installation in any standard equipment rack, saving valuable space in a data center. The switch is designed to be stackable, allowing for a unified system that is easy to manage as a single entity despite comprising multiple switches. This feature simplifies network administration and provides scalability to meet growing network demands. -
