General Information about WS-C3560X-24T-L
Model Number or SKU# WS-C3560X-24T-L
Product Line Catalyst
Product Series 3560-X
Product Name Catalyst WS-C3560X-24T-L Gigabit Ethernet Switch
Product Type Ethernet Switch
This Item is a Cisco Catalyst switch that can be used to build a high-performance, scalable Ethernet network. It is a managed switch, which means that it can be configured and monitored using a network management protocol such as SNMP.
The switch has 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports, which can be used to connect devices such as computers, servers, and other networking equipment. The "3560X" in the product name indicates that this is a member of the 3560-X series of switches, which are designed for use in enterprise networks. The "24T" in the name indicates that this particular model has 24 ports, and the "L" in the name indicates that it is a "lower-end" model in the 3560-X series.
This Item is a layer 2 switch, which means that it operates at the data link layer of the OSI model. This allows it to perform basic switching functions, such as forwarding and filtering packets based on their MAC addresses. The switch also supports a range of advanced features, such as Quality of Service (QoS) and VLANs, which can be used to optimize network performance and improve security.
High-Performance of 3500 Series Switch
The WS-C3560X-24T-L Cisco Catalyst 3560X is designed to deliver high performance in enterprise and mid-sized network environments. Some of the key performance features of this switch include:
24 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports: The switch has 24 ports that support speeds of up to 1 Gbps, allowing it to handle high-bandwidth traffic such as video streaming and data transfer.
Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE): The switch is designed to be energy efficient, with support for EEE to help reduce power consumption when the network is idle or under low traffic loads.
Quality of Service (QoS): The switch includes QoS features to help prioritize traffic and improve network performance. This includes support for different traffic classes and the ability to set up traffic policies to control how different types of traffic are handled on the network.
Advanced security features: The switch includes a range of security features to help protect the network from unauthorized access and attacks. These features include Access Control Lists (ACLs) and IEEE 802.1X port security.
Network Expansion and Connectivity
The WS-C3560X-24T-L Cisco Catalyst 3560X is a 24-port managed switch that provides network expansion and connectivity for small to medium-sized businesses. The switch offers 24 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports for connecting devices, such as computers, servers, and printers, to the network. The switch also has two SFP uplink ports for connecting to other switches or routers.
The switch uses Cisco's proprietary IOS software, which provides advanced features such as VLANs, Quality of Service (QoS), and security. This allows network administrators to segment their network into different virtual LANs (VLANs) for better security and traffic management. Additionally, QoS can be used to prioritize important traffic, such as voice and video, to ensure that these applications have sufficient bandwidth.
The WS-C3560X-24T-L also supports PoE (Power over Ethernet) for powering devices such as IP phones, cameras, and wireless access points. This eliminates the need for separate power supplies and reduces cable clutter.
