Connectivity and Performance
The WS-C2960S-24TS-S Cisco Catalyst 2690-S Series switch is a 24-port managed stackable Ethernet switch that provides high-speed connectivity and performance for networking applications.
The switch has 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports, which provide high-speed connectivity for devices such as servers, workstations, and other network devices. These ports support various speeds, including 10/100/1000Mbps which allows the switch to connect to devices that have different Ethernet speeds.
Additionally, the switch supports various features that enhance the performance and connectivity of the network. Quality of Service (QoS) allows network administrators to prioritize network traffic and ensure that critical applications receive the bandwidth they need. The switch also supports VLANs (Virtual Local Area Network) which allows segmenting the network into smaller, logical networks, this reduces the broadcast traffic and increase security.
The switch also supports Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) and Cisco EtherChannel which allows administrators to bundle multiple physical ports together to form a single logical channel. This increases the bandwidth and provides redundancy in case of a failure.
Additionally, the switch supports advanced security features such as Access Control Lists (ACLs) and Cisco Identity-Based Networking Services (IBNS) which provide identity-based security policies for endpoint devices.
Power Options and Redundancy
The WS-C2960S-24TS-S Cisco Catalyst 2690-S Series switch supports several power options and redundancy features to ensure that the network remains up and running even in the event of power failures or other issues.
In terms of power options, the switch can be powered by an internal power supply or by an external power supply. The internal power supply provides a standard power option, while the external power supply provides a redundant power option. The switch also supports Cisco's Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) feature which reduces power consumption when the network is not in use.
The switch also supports power redundancy through the use of StackPower. StackPower allows you to connect multiple switches together and share power between them. This provides an additional level of redundancy, as the switch can continue to operate even if one of the power supplies fails.
Additionally, the switch supports several features that increase the availability of the network. One of them is the StackWise technology, which allows you to connect multiple switches together and create a single logical switch. This provides redundancy in case of a switch failure, and it also allows to share resources between switches.
Quality of Service (QoS) Capabilities
The WS-C2960S-24TS-S Cisco Catalyst 2690-S Series switch supports Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities that allow network administrators to prioritize network traffic and ensure that critical applications receive the bandwidth they need.
One of the main QoS features supported by the switch is Class of Service (CoS) which allows you to classify traffic based on Layer 2,3, and 4 information and assign it to different priority levels. This allows you to prioritize certain types of traffic, such as VoIP or video, over less critical traffic, such as file transfers.
The switch also supports Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED) which helps to prevent global synchronization of TCP flows and reduce congestion.
Additionally, the switch supports Multi-Field Classifier (MFC) which allows you to classify traffic based on different fields such as IP source and destination address, TCP/UDP port numbers and DSCP values. This allows you to create more granular policies and apply them to specific types of traffic.
The switch also supports Quality of Service groups (QoS groups) which allows you to group multiple interfaces and apply the same QoS policies to them. This helps to simplify the configuration and management of QoS policies.

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.
