The CAB-STK-E-3M Cisco StackWise Plus network cable is a stacking cable that is used to connect Cisco switches that support StackWise Plus technology. This cable provides a high-speed connection between two switches in a stack, allowing them to be treated as a single logical switch.
One of the key benefits of StackWise Plus technology is that it allows multiple switches to be connected together in a stack and managed as a single unit. This simplifies network management, reducing complexity and allowing for faster problem resolution. StackWise Plus also provides increased bandwidth by aggregating the bandwidth of all the switches in the stack. And also, it improves resiliency by allowing for redundancy in case of switch failure.
It's important to note that, The Part cable is designed for use with specific Cisco switch models that support StackWise Plus technology. It is not compatible with other models or other brands. It's always important to verify the compatibility of the cable with the switch models before purchasing it.
The Part is a 3 meter long cable, which provides flexibility in terms of the placement of switches in a stack. Additionally, it's an active cable which provides better signal integrity and improved performance compared to passive cables.
It's also worth mentioning that StackWise Plus is an end-of-sale and end-of-life (EoS & EoL) product, which means it's no longer available for purchase and Cisco no longer provides technical support or software updates for it. Many newer alternatives are available in the market such as Cisco StackWise-480 and Cisco FlexStack-Plus which provide more benefits and enhanced features than StackWise Plus.
The Cisco CAB-STK-E-3M StackWise Plus Network Cable is a stackable network cable that is used to connect two Cisco switches in a StackWise Plus stack configuration.
A StackWise Plus stack configuration allows you to group several switches together and treat them as a single logical switch, which can simplify network management and provide increased performance and availability. The Part cable is used to physically connect the two switches in the stack, and it supports data transfer speeds of up to 40 Gbps.
In order to use the Part cable, you will need to have two Cisco switches that are compatible with StackWise Plus stacking. You can check the documentation for your specific model of switch to see if it is capable of being stacked and if it is compatible with the Part cable.
The CAB-STK-E-3M Cisco StackWise Plus network cable is designed to provide high-performance when used with Cisco networking equipment. This cable provides a high-speed connection between two switches that are a part of the same stack. The StackWise Plus technology allows switches to be connected together and treated as a single logical switch, which provides several performance benefits.
- Increased bandwidth: StackWise Plus technology allows for increased bandwidth by aggregating the bandwidth of all the switches in the stack. This means that the total throughput of the stack is the sum of the throughput of all the individual switches.
- Improved resiliency: StackWise Plus technology provides improved resiliency by allowing multiple switches to be connected together in a stack. If one switch in the stack fails, the other switches will continue to operate, minimizing downtime and ensuring high availability for the network.
- Enhanced network management: StackWise Plus allows you to manage all the switches in the stack as a single unit, simplifying network management and reducing complexity.
- Improved scalability: StackWise Plus allows for easy scalability of the network, by allowing you to add or remove switches from the stack without disrupting the network operation.
- Reduced Latency: StackWise Plus technology provides a low-latency, high-speed connection between the switches in the stack, which helps to improve the overall performance of the network.
It's worth noting that, this cable is designed to be used with specific cisco switch models and it may not work with other models or other brands. Also, The performance of StackWise Plus depends on the specific switch models that are being used, the number of switches in the stack, and the specific network configuration. Always verify the compatibility and network design before purchasing the cable.

Cables - Stacking Cable
The use of switches in a corporate network cannot be ignored. These devices allow any equipment connected in the network to communicate, making collaboration among employees easier. But how do switches work? Switches have to be configured in every network. Usually, every device is assigned an IP address, but that is not necessary anymore. With the introduction of stacking technology, up to 4 switches can be connected using stack cables to act as one unit.
Do You Need Switch Stacking?
It is not debatable that you will need stacking later, even if it is not necessary now. As your business grows, many devices are connected to a network. Soon, there will be no more space on the current switch. That calls for a second switch, and the pattern continues until you have a rack full of switches. Connecting all these switches to a network is not only expensive but a pain-taking process. You will need a stacking cable to harness the power of stacking technology. Depending on the distance between your switches, you can choose options from 1-meter cables to 3-meter or 10-feet stacking cables.
What Are the Benefits of Switch Stacking?
The number one benefit is the reduced cost of networking in a corporate organization. Secondly, you won't have to complain about management. It becomes easy to remove or add any switch to the system without interrupting the entire network. Depending on the brand you have, you can add up to 9 devices in a stack by connecting them with a stack cable. And what more? You have full access to all ports of switches in a stack; not even a single port is blocked by STP.
