The Cisco 3850 Series of switches is an industry-leading, enterprise-class series of access switches that offers superior performance, scalability, and reliability. The Catalyst 3850 Series is the first to feature a built-in wireless controller with up to 40 Gbps of capacity on 48-port models. Further, it supports up to 100 access points and 2,000 wireless clients per switching entity (or stack). These switches are stackable up to 9 members and come equipped with Cisco's popular StackPower technology. StackPower is an innovative power sharing and redundancy technology that allows members of the stack to share in one of two power pooling topologies. The first, power sharing mode, aggregates then distributes the power among the stack. Power is dynamically allocated where it’s needed. The second, redundant mode, polls the stack, identifies the supply with the greatest wattage then reserves its use for failure. Power is then allocated to the stack from the remainder of the supplies. Once the reserved power supply is activated, the stack migrates to power sharing mode automatically. This technology eliminates the need for an external RPS unit and allows users to simply add another power supply for either redundancy or additional power to the pool.
Converged Wired & Wireless Access Over a Single Platform - The Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series of switches bundles wired and wireless features into a single Cisco IOS Software image which allows users to reduce the number of software images that users need to qualify and certify before enabling them in their network. Further, the wired and wireless convergence increases the bandwidth & scalability of these switches.
Integrated Wireless Controller - This is the first Cisco Catalyst series to include an integrated wireless controller. This allows for the wired/wireless convergence noted above. The integrated controller is 802.11ac-ready and can function well in large networks with a high wireless throughput of up to 40 Gbps.
Up to 40 Gb of Capacity per Switch - All 48 port models are capable of delivering up to 40 Gbps of wireless throughput. This wireless capacity also increases with additional members in the stack making it highly scalable. The 24 and 12 port switch models are capable of delivering up to 20 Gbps of wireless throughput.
Supports up to 100 Access Points & 2,000 Wireless Clients - These switches are able to support up to 100 access points and 2,000 wireless clients per switching entity (switch or stack).
Equipped With Cisco StackWise-480 Technology - This is Cisco's premium stacking architecture which provides for both scalability and resiliency by providing up to 480 Gbps of stack throughput. It uses Cisco's IOS Software Stateful Switchover (SSO) technology to provide for added resiliency within the stack.
Equipped With Cisco StackPower Technology - This innovative power interconnect system allows for power stacking among stack members. This allows the power supplies within the stack to be shared as a common resource among all the switches in that stack for a high level of power redundancy.
