Energy Efficiency and Green Features of Ethernet Switch

The WS-C2960-24TC-S Cisco Catalyst 2960 is a managed Ethernet switch with 24 ports. It has energy efficiency and green features such as:

  • Energy Detect: Automatically detects the length of connected cables and adjusts power usage accordingly
  • Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE): Reduces power consumption during periods of low network utilization
  • Power Saving: Automatically powers down inactive ports to reduce power consumption
  • Fanless design: Does not require fans, reducing power consumption and noise levels.
  • Cisco EnergyWise technology: A feature that enables the switch to monitor and report energy usage of connected devices.
  • IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) support: This standard reduces power consumption during periods of low network utilization by putting the interfaces in a low-power idle state. It is an older model and it's not available for purchase from Cisco anymore.

Compatibility with Cisco IOS Software

The WS-C2960-24TC-S Cisco Catalyst 2960 is compatible with Cisco IOS (Internetwork Operating System) software. Cisco IOS is the software that runs on Cisco network devices such as routers, switches, and wireless access points. It provides a command-line interface (CLI) for configuring and managing the device, as well as a variety of features such as:

  • Routing protocols: OSPF, EIGRP, BGP, etc.
  • Switching protocols: VLAN, VTP, STP, etc.
  • Network security: Access control lists, firewall, VPN, etc.
  • Quality of Service (QoS): Prioritizing different types of network traffic.
  • Management and monitoring: SNMP, NetFlow, etc.

It's worth noting that the WS-C2960-24TC-S is an older model and not all the features and functionality of the current IOS version are available for it, so it's important to check the compatibility with the IOS version and feature set before upgrading or implementing new features.

Quality of Service (QoS) Support

The WS-C2960-24TC-S Cisco Catalyst 2960 supports Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize different types of network traffic. QoS is used to manage and control network traffic by prioritizing certain types of data over others. This ensures that critical traffic, such as real-time voice and video, is given priority over less critical traffic like file transfers.

The WS-C2960-24TC-S supports a variety of QoS features such as:

  • Class-Based Weighted Fair Queuing (CBWFQ): Allows you to assign different priorities to different traffic types based on their IP addresses, protocols, or ports.
  • Low-Latency Queuing (LLQ): Gives priority to real-time traffic such as voice and video, while still allowing non-real-time traffic to pass through.
  • Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED): This method helps prevent network congestion by randomly dropping packets that are deemed less important.
  • Access Control Lists (ACLs) : Can be used to identify and mark certain types of traffic for QoS.

It's worth noting that the WS-C2960-24TC-S is an older model and not all the features and functionality of the current IOS version are available for it, so it's important to check the compatibility with the IOS version and feature set before upgrading or implementing new features.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

Different Types of Switches

Networking switches vary widely depending on the number of devices they can support, network bandwidth/speed, and form factor. Switches for small offices will have anything between 4 and 8 ports and can fit on a desk. For larger office network implementation, switches may have 24 ports, 48 ports, 96 ports, and 128 ports and are rack-mountable between 1U and 4U. Switches come in different types depending on the network speed and tasks they support. These include 40/100 Gbps, 10 Gigabit (up to 10000 Mbps), Gigabit Ethernet (up to 1000 Mbps), Power over Ethernet, and Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps).

Unmanaged Switches

The unmanaged switches offer fixed configurations on a plug-and-play basis. It is the most basic switch and there are a few choices in the market. These switches are affordable, but the basic features make them inappropriate for enterprise applications.

Managed Switches

The number of features and level of functionality improves with managed switches, making them ideal for enterprise and business applications. These switches are built with the command-line interface for ease of configuration. Equally, they support SNMP agents that come in handy when troubleshooting network issues.

The security on managed switches is better and will protect different types of traffic. Other features include support for virtual LANs, IP routing, and quality of service settings. Managed switches are more expensive compared to all other types of switches.

Smart Switches

Smart switches refer to switches that possess more features than those unmanaged switches but do not have the full features of managed switches. Smart switches are more cost-effective than managed switches.

Some of the limitations of the smart switches are a lack of telnet access support, Web GUIs, and a lack of many features for VLANs. They are affordable compared to a fully managed switch and are suitable for a smaller computer network.

Modular Switches

Modular switches allow the addition of expansion modules as the network expands. The expansion modules allow for more networked devices but are application-specific. They may include wireless access points, firewalls, or network analysis tools. The flexibility of a modular networking switch comes at a higher cost.
