High-performance of Switch Module
The WS-C2960CX-8PC-L Cisco Catalyst 8 Ports Gigabits Ethernet Managed Switch is a high-performing networking device that is designed for use in small to medium-sized businesses and organizations. It provides eight Fast Ethernet ports for connecting devices such as computers, servers, and other networking equipment.
One of the key features that contribute to the performance of this switch is its ability to deliver fast data transfer speeds. It is capable of transferring data at a rate of up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps) on each port, which allows it to handle large volumes of traffic without experiencing any delays or bottlenecks.
In addition, the switch is equipped with advanced traffic management features that help optimize its performance. These include Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities, which allow the switch to prioritize certain types of traffic over others, and port-based VLANs, which allow the switch to segment the network into smaller, more secure segments.
Resiliency and High Availability of Cisco Switch
The WS-C2960CX-8PC-L Cisco Catalyst Layer 3 8 Ports Managed Switch is designed to provide resiliency and high availability in network environments. It features a number of built-in mechanisms to ensure that network traffic can continue to flow even in the event of a failure.
One of the key features of the WS-C2960CX-8PC-L is its support for Cisco StackWise-160 technology. This allows multiple switches to be connected together in a stack, providing a single point of management and increasing the overall capacity and resilience of the network. In the event of a switch failure, the remaining switches in the stack can automatically take over the traffic, ensuring that there is no disruption to network services.
Another important feature of the WS-C2960CX-8PC-L is its support for Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP). These protocols allow the switch to detect and recover from network loops and other topology changes, ensuring that network traffic is always flowing on the optimal path.
The WS-C2960CX-8PC-L also includes Cisco FlexStack-Plus technology, which enables the switch to be managed as a single entity with a single IP address. This makes it easy to manage and monitor the switch, even in large, complex networks.
In addition, the WS-C2960CX-8PC-L supports Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), which allows multiple physical links to be grouped together to form a single logical link. This increases the available bandwidth and improves the resiliency of the network by providing multiple paths for traffic to flow.

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).
The unmanaged switches offer fixed configuration 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.
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 refer to switches that possess more features than those of 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 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.
