General Information about this Cisco WS-C3750X-48T-E
Model Number or SKU# WS-C3750X-48T-E
Product Line: Catalyst
Product Series: 3750-X
Product Name Catalyst: WS-C3750X-48T-E Ethernet Switch
Product Type: Ethernet Switch
This Model is a stackable, managed switch that is part of the Cisco Catalyst 3750-X Series of switches. It has 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports and four 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10G) SFP+ uplinks. The switch is designed for enterprise-class access switching and provides advanced security, network automation, and energy-efficient features.
The WS-C3750X-48T-E has a forwarding rate of up to 95.2 Mpps and a switching capacity of 128 Gbps. It supports advanced security features such as Cisco TrustSec and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) for network access control and security policy enforcement. It also supports network automation through Cisco DNA Center and programmability through Cisco SD-WAN and Cisco APIC-EM.
In terms of energy efficiency, This Model supports Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), which reduces power consumption during periods of low network activity. It also has a number of other energy-efficient features such as Power-On Auto-Provisioning (POAP) and Dynamic Power Management (DPM).
Reliability for 48 Ports Switch
This Product Cisco Catalyst 3750X 48-port Ethernet switch is designed to provide reliability for enterprise networks. Here are some of the features that contribute to the reliability of the WS-C3750X-48T-E:
Redundant power supplies and fans: The switch has two power supplies and two fans, which can be configured to provide redundant power and cooling for the switch. This helps to ensure that the switch stays up and running even if one of the power supplies or fans fails.
StackWise-480 technology: This Product supports Cisco StackWise-480 technology, which allows it to be stacked with other Catalyst 3750X Series switches to form a single logical unit. This provides a scalable and redundant solution for growing networks.
Hot swappable modules: The power supplies, fans, and network modules in This Item are hot swappable, meaning they can be replaced without disrupting the operation of the switch.
Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP): This Item supports LACP, which allows multiple physical links to be bundled together to form a single logical link. This provides additional bandwidth and redundancy for the network.
Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP): This Model supports VRRP, which allows multiple routers to work together to provide a single virtual router for the network. This provides redundancy for the network routing infrastructure.
First Hop Redundancy Protocol (FHRP): This Item supports FHRP, which allows multiple routers to work together to provide a single default gateway for the network. This provides redundancy for the network default gateway.
The Cisco WS-C3750X-48T-E Catalyst 3750X 48-port manageable switch operates at Layer 2 of the OSI model. As a Layer 2 device, This Product is responsible for forwarding data frames between devices on the same network segment based on their MAC addresses.
This Model supports various Layer 2 protocols and features such as:
Spanning Tree Protocol (STP): STP is a Layer 2 protocol that helps to prevent loops in the network by electing a root bridge and blocking redundant paths.
Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP): LACP allows multiple physical links to be bundled together to form a single logical link, providing additional bandwidth and redundancy for the network.
VLANs: Virtual LANs (VLANs) allow you to segment the network into logical groups, allowing you to separate different types of traffic and improve security and performance.
Quality of Service (QoS): QoS allows you to prioritize network traffic and ensure that critical applications receive the bandwidth they need.
Access Control Lists (ACLs): ACLs allow you to specify which types of traffic are allowed or denied on the network.
