Product Name Catalyst 2960S-F48LPS-L Switch
Product Type Ethernet Switch
The WS-C2960S-F48LPS-L is a Cisco Catalyst 2960-SF Series switch that is designed for use in small to medium-sized businesses, branch offices, and enterprise edge networks. It is a 48-port switch that provides advanced security features, quality of service (QoS), and energy-efficient technology. The switch supports Layer 2 switching and Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) capabilities.
With 48 Ethernet ports, the switch can provide connectivity for a large number of devices such as computers, servers, and IP phones. The PoE+ capability allows the switch to provide power to devices such as IP phones, wireless access points and other PoE-enabled devices, eliminating the need for additional power sources. This can save on costs and simplify the network infrastructure.
The switch also supports Cisco EnergyWise technology, which helps reduce energy consumption and costs by monitoring and controlling energy usage of connected devices. This feature helps in reducing the environmental impact and operating costs of the network.
The switch also provides advanced security features such as Access Control Lists (ACLs) and Network Admission Control (NAC) to help protect against unauthorized access and network threats. The switch also supports Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize network traffic and ensure that critical applications receive the bandwidth they need.
Easy Management and Scalability
The Cisco Catalyst 2960-SF series switch, specifically the WS-C2960S-F48LPS-L model, can be easily managed using Cisco's web-based management interface, known as Cisco Network Assistant, or through the command-line interface (CLI) using a console or SSH connection. The switch also supports Cisco's Smart Operations, which includes features such as auto-discovery, zero-touch deployment, and automatic error recovery.
In terms of scalability, the WS-C2960S-F48LPS-L has 48 Ethernet ports, all of which support Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+). The switch also supports stacking, allowing multiple switches to be connected together and managed as a single entity, increasing available ports and allowing for easy expansion as your network grows.
Features and Benefits
The WS-C2960S-F48LPS-L Cisco Catalyst 2960-SF series switch is a 48-port PoE+ Ethernet switch that offers a variety of features and benefits for businesses and organizations. Some of the key features and benefits of this switch include:
Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+): The switch supports PoE+ on all 48 ports, allowing devices such as IP phones and wireless access points to be powered directly from the switch, reducing the need for additional power sources and simplifying network infrastructure.
Stacking: The switch supports stacking, which allows multiple switches to be connected together and managed as a single entity. This increases the number of available ports and allows for easy expansion as your network grows.
Quality of Service (QoS): The switch supports QoS, which allows you to prioritize different types of network traffic, ensuring that critical applications and services receive the necessary bandwidth.
Security: The switch has a number of security features, such as Cisco TrustSec, which allows you to secure your network and prevent unauthorized access.
Energy efficiency: The switch is Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) compliant and support Cisco EnergyWise to help you manage energy consumption and reduce costs.
Easy management: The switch can be easily managed using Cisco Network Assistant, web browser, or command-line interface (CLI), and it supports Smart Operations for zero-touch deployment, auto-discovery, and automatic error recovery.
Investment protection: This switch series is built on the same Cisco IOS software as the rest of the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series Switches, which means you can use the same Cisco IOS commands, features, and protocols you already know.
