The WS-C2960PD-8TT-L is a Cisco Catalyst 2960 switch, which is a type of network switch designed for use in enterprise networks. It has 8 ports, each of which uses RJ-45 connectors to support 10/100/1000 Ethernet. This allows it to connect to a variety of devices, including computers, servers, and other network devices.
The switch is a Layer 2 switch, which means it operates at the data link layer of the OSI model. This allows it to forward and filter Ethernet frames based on their MAC addresses, but it does not perform any routing between different network protocols.
The "PD" in the model number stands for "PoE+", indicating that the switch supports Power over Ethernet Plus. This feature allows the switch to provide power to connected devices over the Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for separate power supplies for devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras.
The "TT" in the model number indicates that the switch has a 2x10G uplink. This means it has 2 ports that support 10 Gigabit Ethernet, which is a faster version of Ethernet that is typically used for high-speed connections between network devices.
Features and Benefits
The WS-C2960PD-8TT-L Cisco Catalyst 2960 8-Ports RJ-45 Layer 2 Ethernet Switch is designed for small and medium-sized businesses, providing a cost-effective, reliable and secure solution for data and voice communication.
In terms of performance, the switch supports 10/100/1000 Mbps data rates on each port and has 2x10G uplink which means it can handle high-bandwidth applications such as video and voice. The switch also supports Quality of Service (QoS) which allows prioritization of different types of network traffic, ensuring that critical applications receive the necessary bandwidth.
In terms of reliability, the switch has several features that enhance its performance and availability. The switch has advanced security features such as Access Control Lists (ACLs) and Cisco TrustSec for securing the network. Additionally, the switch supports the Cisco EnergyWise technology, which helps to monitor and manage the power consumption of network devices, thus reducing energy costs.
Additionally, the switch is built with a redundant power supply and a fan tray for enhanced power and cooling redundancy. These features work to ensure that the switch is always available and that the network remains operational even in case of a power or cooling failure.
The WS-C2960PD-8TT-L Cisco Catalyst 2960 8-Ports RJ-45 Layer 2 Ethernet Switch is compliant with a number of industry standards. These standards help ensure that the switch is interoperable with other network devices and that it meets certain performance and security requirements.
Some of the compliant standards for this switch include:
- IEEE 802.3: This standard defines the specifications for Ethernet, the most widely used local area network (LAN) technology. The switch is compliant with IEEE 802.3 10BASE-T, IEEE 802.3u 100BASE-TX, and IEEE 802.3ab 1000BASE-T.
- IEEE 802.3af: This standard defines the specifications for Power over Ethernet (PoE), which allows the switch to provide power to connected devices over the Ethernet cable. The switch is compliant with IEEE 802.3af and also supports PoE+.
- IEEE 802.3x: This standard defines the specifications for flow control, which allows the switch to control the flow of data to prevent data loss during periods of high network congestion.
- IEEE 802.1Q: This standard defines the specifications for Virtual LANs (VLANs), which allow for the creation of multiple virtual networks on a single physical infrastructure.
- IEEE 802.1p: This standard defines the specifications for Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize different types of network traffic.
- IEEE 802.1X: This standard defines the specifications for port-based network access control, which allows the switch to authenticate users before granting them access to the network.
- Cisco EnergyWise: This Cisco proprietary technology helps to monitor and manage the power consumption of network devices, thus reducing energy costs.
These standards help ensure that the WS-C2960PD-8TT-L switch is a reliable and secure network solution that can easily integrate with other devices and technologies.

About Refurbished Products
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.
