General Information about Cisco WS-C2960S-48LPD-L
Model Number or SKU# WS-C2960S-48LPD-L
Product Line Catalyst
Product Series 2960
Product Type: Ethernet Switch
The WS-C2960S-48LPD-L is a Cisco Catalyst 2960-S series switch. It is a 48-port, stackable Ethernet switch that is designed for use in small to medium-sized enterprise networks. The switch supports 10/100/1000Mbps speeds on all of its ports, and it also includes 4 SFP (fiber) uplink ports. The "L" in the model number indicates that the switch has LAN Base feature set.
The 2960-S series supports stackwise technology that allows multiple switches to be stacked together and managed as a single unit, providing a scalable solution for growing networks. Additionally, this switch support Cisco's EnergyWise technology which allow you to monitor and control energy consumption of network infrastructure and network-connected devices, to help reduce energy costs.
This switch is designed for access layer and it is suitable for deployment in small to medium-sized enterprise access-layer networks, such as those in branch offices or enterprise campus networks.
Performance and Reliability
The model Cisco Catalyst 2960S switch is a high-performance, stackable Ethernet switch designed for access-layer deployments in enterprise, branch, and small and medium-sized business (SMB) networks. The switch provides a reliable, secure, and high-performance network foundation for your business applications.
In terms of performance, the switch supports Gigabit Ethernet speeds on all 48 ports, which provides fast and reliable connectivity for devices connected to the switch. The 2x1G SFP uplink ports provide additional connectivity options for uplinking the switch to other network devices. Additionally, the switch supports Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), which helps to reduce power consumption and lower operating costs.
In terms of reliability, the switch is designed to be highly available and to provide robust performance even in the event of a failure. The switch supports StackWise Plus technology, which allows multiple switches to be stacked together to create a single logical switch. This allows for increased port density, and provides redundancy and automatic failover in case of a switch failure.
The switch also supports advanced security features such as IEEE 802.1X and Access Control Lists (ACLs) to help protect your network from unauthorized access. Furthermore, the switch is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty, and offers low overall total cost of ownership (TCO).
Interface Provided for Digital Workplace
The WS-C2960S-48LPD-L Cisco Catalyst 2960S 48-port stackable Ethernet switch provides a variety of interface options that can be used to connect devices in a digital workplace.
The switch has 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports, which are 10/100/1000Mbps ports that can be used to connect devices such as computers, servers, and IP phones. These ports can also support Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) which can be used to power connected devices such as access points and IP phones, eliminating the need for a separate power supply.
Additionally, the switch has 2x1G SFP ports which are small form-factor pluggable ports that can be used to connect the switch to other network devices or to connect the switch to a fiber-optic network. These ports support both 1000BASE-SX and 1000BASE-LX/LH SFPs and are used for uplink connectivity.
The switch also includes support for advanced Quality of Service (QoS) features that can be used to prioritize certain types of traffic, such as voice or video, ensuring that these types of applications receive the necessary bandwidth.
