Resiliency and High Availability

The Cisco Catalyst WS-C2960CG-8TC-L 8 Ports Managed Switch is a fixed-configuration, Layer 2 switch that provides resiliency and high availability through the use of several features such as:

  • Redundant Power Supply: The switch has an optional redundant power supply that can provide power to the switch in case of a primary power supply failure.
  • Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP): These protocols help to prevent loops in the network and ensure that only one active path exists between two devices, providing fast convergence in case of a link failure.
  • Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP): This protocol allows for the creation of link aggregation groups, which can provide redundancy and increased bandwidth.
  • Quality of Service (QoS): The switch supports QoS, which allows for the prioritization of different types of traffic, ensuring that critical traffic is not impacted by non-critical traffic during periods of high congestion.
  • Remote Management: The switch can be managed remotely, allowing for troubleshooting and configuration changes to be made without the need for physical access to the device.
