The STACK-T2-50CM= Cisco 50CM StackWise Stacking Cable is a physical cable that is used to connect multiple Cisco network switches together in a stack configuration. This allows the switches to operate as a single, unified device, with a single IP address and management interface. This cable is 50 centimeters in length and is compatible with Cisco's StackWise technology, which is a stacking technology that allows up to 9 switches to be stacked together.
When switches are stacked, it provides increased availability, scalability, and ease of management. The cable connects to the stacking ports on the back of each switch, and the stacking configuration is managed through the switch's web interface or command-line interface. By connecting multiple switches together in a stack, it allows for more ports, higher throughput, and redundancy, which increases the reliability of the network.
The STACK-T2-50CM= Cisco 50CM StackWise Stacking Cable is designed to provide high-performance stacking capabilities for Cisco network switches. When multiple switches are stacked together using this cable, it allows for increased port count, higher throughput, and redundancy, which improves the overall performance and reliability of the network.
One of the key features of the StackWise technology is the ability to provide a single, unified management interface for all the switches in the stack. This allows for a more streamlined and efficient way to manage and configure the network, reducing the time and effort required to manage multiple individual switches.
Additionally, the StackWise technology provides increased availability by allowing for automatic failover and recovery in the event of a switch failure. This ensures that the network remains operational even if a switch in the stack goes down.
In terms of throughput, the StackWise technology provides a high-speed stacking bus that allows for high-bandwidth data transfer between the switches in the stack. This allows for increased throughput and reduced latency, which improves the performance of the network for applications that require high bandwidth.
The model Cisco 50CM StackWise Stacking Cable is designed to provide high reliability when connecting multiple Cisco network switches in a stack configuration. The StackWise technology that the cable is designed to work with provides several features that improve the reliability of the network.
One of the key features of the StackWise technology is the ability to provide automatic failover and recovery in the event of a switch failure. This ensures that the network remains operational even if a switch in the stack goes down. This is accomplished by having a "master" switch in the stack that is responsible for managing the configuration and status of the other switches in the stack. If the master switch fails, another switch in the stack is automatically elected as the new master, ensuring that the network remains up and running.
The StackWise technology also allows for the use of redundant power supplies and fans in the switches, which improves the overall reliability of the network.
Another feature that improves reliability is the ability to perform non-disruptive software upgrades for all the switches in the stack simultaneously, which reduces the risk of downtime and improves the overall availability of the network.
In terms of cable failure, the STACK-T2-50CM= Cisco 50CM StackWise Stacking Cable is designed to be durable, but if it fails it will affect the stack operation, it's recommended to have a spare 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.
