Product Details for the Cisco WS-C2960-24PC-S Managed Switch

In the fast-paced world of networking, having a reliable and efficient switch is crucial for seamless communication and data transfer. The Cisco WS-C2960-24PC-S Catalyst 2960 Series emerges as a notable player, offering 24 Power Over Ethernet (PoE) Fast Ethernet Ports along with 2 Combo Gigabit Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) ports. This particular model stands out with its 24 Fast Ethernet ports, all of which support Power Over Ethernet (PoE), and 2 Combo Gigabit SFP ports.

Power Over Ethernet (PoE) CapabilitiesPoE Advantages

The standout feature of this Cisco Catalyst switch is its Power Over Ethernet (PoE) support across all 24 Fast Ethernet ports. PoE eliminates the need for separate power cables, simplifying the installation process and reducing clutter. This capability is particularly valuable for powering IP cameras, VoIP phones, and other devices in locations where power outlets may be limited or inconvenient.

PoE+ Standard

Furthermore, the Cisco WS-C2960-24PC-S adheres to the PoE+ standard (802.3at), providing increased power delivery compared to the earlier PoE standard. This ensures compatibility with a broader range of power-hungry devices, extending the switch's applicability in diverse network environments.

Gigabit SFP Ports for High-Speed ConnectivityFlexibility and Scalability

In addition to its PoE capabilities, the Cisco Catalyst 2960-24PC-S features 2 Combo Gigabit SFP ports. These Small Form-Factor pluggable (SFP) ports offer gigabit-speed connectivity and can accommodate various SFP modules, providing flexibility for different network architectures. The ability to use fiber-optic connections enhances data transfer rates and allows for extended reach in network deployments.

Uplink and Expansion Possibilities

The inclusion of Gigabit SFP ports is particularly advantageous for uplink connections, facilitating high-speed data transfer between switches and network segments. This capability is crucial for avoiding bottlenecks in data traffic and ensuring smooth communication within the entire network. It also opens the door to network expansion, making the Cisco WS-C2960-24PC-S a scalable solution for growing businesses.

Management and Security FeaturesComprehensive Management Capabilities

As a managed switch, the Cisco WS-C2960-24PC-S offers a suite of management features that empower network administrators to configure, monitor, and optimize network performance. These features include a web-based graphical user interface (GUI), command-line interface (CLI), and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) support. The intuitive interface simplifies the configuration process, making it accessible to both seasoned professionals and those new to network management.

VLAN Support

Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) support is another notable feature of this Cisco Catalyst switch. VLANs enable network segmentation, improving network efficiency, security, and manageability. The WS-C2960-24PC-S allows for the creation of multiple VLANs, allowing organizations to tailor their network architecture to specific needs and requirements.

Security Measures

Security is a top priority in any network, and the Cisco WS-C2960-24PC-S addresses this concern with a range of security features. These include port security, which restricts access based on MAC addresses, and DHCP snooping, which prevents unauthorized DHCP servers from distributing IP addresses. Additionally, the switch supports features like 802.1X authentication and Access Control Lists (ACLs), enhancing overall network security.

Reliability and DurabilityCisco Reputation for Reliability

Cisco has long been synonymous with reliability in the networking industry, and the WS-C2960-24PC-S Catalyst switch is no exception. With a reputation built on quality, Cisco switches are known for their durability and consistent performance. This reliability is particularly crucial in mission-critical environments where network downtime is not an option.

Energy-Efficient Design

Beyond reliability, the Cisco WS-C2960-24PC-S incorporates energy-efficient features to minimize environmental impact and reduce operational costs. The switch is designed to consume less power during periods of low network activity, contributing to energy savings without compromising performance.
