Product Review

The Cisco WSC2960X24PDL switch provides 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces with two SFP+ uplink ports, catering to high-speed connectivity needs, but its power over Ethernet (PoE) capacity is limited to 370W, which may not suffice for all PoE devices in larger setups. Its operating temperature range from -5°C to 40°C and altitude resilience up to 10,000 ft operational and 13,000 ft storage ensure reliable performance in varied environmental conditions. However, energy consumption remains relatively high across traffic loads, averaging at 52.3 W, indicating potential for improvement in power efficiency.


The Cisco WSC2960X24PDL is a network switch designed to support the demands of modern networking environments. It offers 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces for high-speed connectivity and data transfer across the network. Additionally, it features 2 SFP+ uplink interfaces, enabling high-speed uplinks to other network devices or aggregation points, facilitating efficient network expansion and connectivity to higher-layer devices. This model is equipped with Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, with an available PoE 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 for these devices and simplifying the network infrastructure. Physically, the switch measures 1.75 inches in height, 14.5 inches in depth, and 17.5 inches in width, with a weight of 12.7 lbs. This compact form factor is suitable for rack mounting in a standard 19-inch rack, making it an ideal choice for both small and large networking setups. The operating environment specifications ensure reliability under various conditions. The switch operates within a temperature range of -5 °C to 40 °C and can function at altitudes up to 10,000 feet. For storage, it can withstand altitudes up to 13,000 feet. Relative humidity levels for operation and storage range from 10% to 95%, noncondensing, ensuring the switch's performance is not affected by moisture. The noise level produced by the switch is relatively low, with a sound pressure level of 39 dB and a sound power of 4.9 dB, making it suitable for office environments where noise is a concern. With a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 233,370 hours, the Cisco WSC2960X24PDL is built for longevity and reliable operation, minimizing downtime and maintenance requirements. Power efficiency is a key feature of this switch. It operates on an AC input voltage of 100 to 240 VAC, with a current rating of 5 A to 2 A and a frequency of 50 to 60 Hz. The power rating is 0.47 kVA. Power consumption varies with traffic load, from 44.7 W at 0% traffic to 53.1 W at 100% traffic, with a weighted average power consumption of 52.3 W. This demonstrates the switch's efficiency in power usage, adapting to different levels of network activity. In terms of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) immunity, the switch complies with several standards, including EN55024, CISPR24, EN300386, and KN24. This ensures the switch's performance and reliability are not affected by electromagnetic interference from other devices. Key specifications include:
  • 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces and 2 SFP+ uplink interfaces.
  • 370 W available PoE power for powering connected devices.
  • 233,370 hours MTBF, indicating high reliability and reduced downtime.
The Cisco WSC2960X24PDL is designed for businesses requiring a reliable, high-performance network switch that supports PoE, high-speed connectivity, and efficient power usage, making it an essential component of modern network infrastructure.
