More Information

The WS-C2960-24TC-L is a 24-port Ethernet switch from the Cisco Catalyst 2960 series. It is designed to provide small and medium-sized businesses with a cost-effective and flexible networking solution.

The switch has 24 Ethernet ports that support Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps) and Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps) speeds. It also has 2 SFP (Small Form-Factor plugable) uplink ports, which can be used to connect the switch to other networking devices or to extend the network to other locations.

The model supports a number of advanced features to help improve network performance and security. These include Quality of Service (QoS) for prioritizing different types of network traffic, access control lists (ACLs) for filtering traffic and support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) for powering devices over the Ethernet cable.

Features and Benefits

The WS-C2960-24TC-L is a Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet switch, which means that it is capable of supporting both 100 Mbps and 1000 Mbps speeds on its 24 Ethernet ports. It uses a store-and-forward switching method, which means that it receives the entire Ethernet frame before forwarding it to the destination port. This can help improve network performance by reducing the number of errors and collisions on the network.

In terms of forwarding performance, this is capable of a maximum of 9.7 million packets per second (MPPs) for 64-byte packets. This means that it can handle a large amount of traffic without experiencing any significant performance degradation.

The switch also supports Quality of Service (QoS) features, which allow you to prioritize certain types of traffic over others. This can be useful in situations where you want to ensure that mission-critical applications or services receive a higher level of network resources.
