Advanced Network Management

The WS-C2960S-48FPS-L Cisco Catalyst Managed Switch provides advanced network management capabilities that help to simplify and streamline network operations. Some of the key advanced network management features of this switch are:

  • VLAN Support: The switch supports up to 255 virtual LANs (VLANs), which can be used to segment the network into smaller, more manageable parts. This can help to improve network performance and security by isolating traffic and restricting access to certain parts of the network.
  • Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP): This feature allows multiple physical links to be combined into a single logical link, which can improve network performance and provide redundancy in case of link failure.
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP): SNMP allows for the monitoring and management of network devices from a central location. The WS-C2960S-48FPS-L supports SNMPv1, v2c, and v3, which provide varying levels of security and authentication.
  • Quality of Service (QoS): The switch supports multiple QoS mechanisms, including differentiated services code point (DSCP) and class of service (CoS), which can be used to prioritize network traffic and ensure that critical applications, such as voice and video, are given priority over less important traffic.
  • Port Mirroring: Port mirroring allows traffic from one or more network ports to be replicated and sent to a monitoring device, such as a network analyzer or intrusion detection system, for analysis and troubleshooting.
  • IPv6 Support: The switch supports IPv6, the latest version of the Internet Protocol, which provides larger address space, improved security, and other advanced features.
  • Command-Line Interface (CLI): The switch can be configured and managed through the CLI, which provides a command-line interface for more advanced users.

Power Options and Redundancy

The WS-C2960S-48FPS-L Cisco Catalyst 2960S 48 Ports Managed Switch has multiple power options and redundancy features to ensure reliable and uninterrupted operation.

  • Power options: The switch can be powered using AC power or DC power, depending on the specific model. The AC power supply can accept input voltages ranging from 100V to 240V, making it suitable for use in different regions. The DC power supply accepts input voltages ranging from -40V to -60V, which can be useful in environments where DC power is the primary source of power.
  • Redundancy features: The switch has several redundancy features that help ensure uninterrupted operation. These include:
  • Dual redundant power supplies: The switch has two power supply slots, which can be populated with either AC or DC power supplies. This allows for automatic failover in the event that one power supply fails.
  • Hot-swappable power supplies and fans: The power supplies and fans in the switch are hot-swappable, meaning they can be replaced while the switch is still running. This allows for maintenance and upgrades to be performed without disrupting network operation.
  • StackPower technology: When multiple switches are stacked together using Cisco's StackWise Plus technology, StackPower technology can be used to share power among the switches. This allows for more efficient use of power and can help ensure that critical network devices remain powered even in the event of a power supply failure.

Quality of Service (QoS) Features

The WS-C2960S-48FPS-L Cisco Catalyst 2960S Managed Switch provides several Quality of Service (QoS) features that help to prioritize network traffic and ensure that critical applications, such as voice and video, are given priority over less important traffic. Some of the key QoS features of this switch are:

  • Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP): DSCP is a QoS mechanism that classifies network traffic based on its type and assigns it a priority level. The switch supports DSCP-based QoS, which can be used to prioritize traffic based on its importance.
  • Class of Service (CoS): CoS is another QoS mechanism that is used to prioritize traffic based on its importance. The switch supports CoS-based QoS, which can be used to assign priority levels to traffic based on its class.
  • Traffic Classification: The switch can classify traffic based on a range of criteria, including source IP address, destination IP address, source MAC address, destination MAC address, and TCP/UDP port number.
  • Traffic Policing: Traffic policing allows for the control of network traffic by setting limits on the amount of traffic that can be sent or received on a particular port. This can be used to prevent network congestion and ensure that critical applications receive the necessary bandwidth.
  • Traffic Shaping: Traffic shaping is a QoS mechanism that allows for the control of network traffic by limiting the rate at which traffic is sent or received on a particular port. This can be used to prevent network congestion and ensure that critical applications receive the necessary bandwidth.
  • Voice VLAN: The switch supports a Voice VLAN feature, which allows for the automatic prioritization of voice traffic over other types of traffic. This can be used to ensure that voice calls are not affected by other types of network traffic.

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 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.

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 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

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.
