The WS-C3560X-24P-S Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series 24 Ports Switch is a high-performance network switch designed for use in enterprise environments. This switch is part of the 3560-X series, which is known for its high-speed data transfer capabilities, advanced security features, and easy management.
The switch has 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports, which can be used to connect a variety of devices such as servers, workstations, and storage devices. These ports are designed to support high-bandwidth applications such as video streaming and virtualization, making it ideal for use in data centers and other demanding environments.
The switch also features advanced security features such as Access Control Lists (ACLs) and Secure Shell (SSH) protocol, which help to protect the network against unauthorized access and malicious attacks. Additionally, the switch is equipped with an easy-to-use web-based management interface, which allows administrators to easily monitor and configure the switch.
allowing for a more efficient and cost-effective network deployment.
IEEE 802.1Q: This standard defines the Virtual LAN (VLAN) tagging protocol, which allows for the creation of multiple virtual networks on a single physical network. The switch is compliant with IEEE 802.1Q, allowing for the creation and management of VLANs to segment and secure the network.
IEEE 802.1D: This standard defines the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), which is used to prevent network loops and ensure a loop-free topology in a network. The switch is compliant with IEEE 802.1D, which allows for the automatic detection and prevention of network loops.
IEEE 802.1X: This standard defines the Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) framework for network access control. The switch is compliant with IEEE 802.1X, which allows for secure and controlled access to the network based on user authentication.
SNMPv3: This standard defines the Simple Network Management Protocol version 3, which is used for managing and monitoring network devices. The switch is compliant with SNMPv3, allowing for easy integration with network management systems and tools.
The WS-C3560X-24P-S Cisco Catalyst 3560X 24 Ports L2 Switch is a high-performance, enterprise-level Layer 2 switch designed for use in medium-sized to large network environments. It offers several features and capabilities that make it suitable for a wide range of network applications, including:
24 Gigabit Ethernet ports: The switch has 24 ports that support Gigabit Ethernet speeds, which allows for fast and reliable data transfer between devices on the network.
Power over Ethernet (PoE): The switch is compliant with both IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at PoE standards, which allows it to supply power to PoE-enabled devices such as IP phones and wireless access points over Ethernet cables.
Stackable design: The switch can be stacked with other Cisco Catalyst 3560X Series switches, which allows for easy management and expansion of the network.
Enhanced security: The switch supports several security features, including Cisco Identity-Based Networking Services (IBNS) for user and device authentication, and Cisco TrustSec for secure access control.
Advanced Quality of Service (QoS): The switch supports advanced QoS features, such as class-based traffic shaping, which allows for prioritization of network traffic based on specific criteria.
Energy-efficient design: The switch is Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) compliant, which helps to reduce power consumption and minimize the environmental impact of the network.
Easy management: The switch supports Cisco Prime Network Control System (NCS) for centralized management and monitoring of the network, making it easy to deploy and maintain.
