Power Over Ethernet (PoE) Capabilities

The WS-C2960X-24PD-L Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series 10 Gigabits Ethernet 24-Ports PoE Manageable Layer 2 Ethernet Switch has several Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities that allow it to provide power to connected devices over the Ethernet cable.

  • PoE support: The switch supports the IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at PoE standards, which allows it to provide power to devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras.
  • PoE Power Budget: The switch has a PoE power budget of 370W, which allows it to provide power to connected devices while preventing overloading the switch's power supply.
  • PoE+ Support: The switch also supports the IEEE 802.3at PoE Plus standard which provides up to 30W of power per port, providing more power to devices such as IP cameras and Access points.
  • Power inline with Data: The switch also supports inline power to the connected devices, which allows the switch to provide power and data over the same cable.
  • PoE Management: The switch also has a web interface that allows you to manage and monitor the PoE power usage of the connected devices.
  • PoE redundancy: The switch also supports a redundant power supply, which allows you to install a second power supply as a backup in case the primary power supply fails. This can help ensure that the switch continues to operate even in the event of a power failure.
  • Power redundancy with stack: The switch also supports stack power, where if one switch in the stack fails the other switches take over to provide power to the stack, this way the stack is never without power.

The PoE capabilities of the WS-C2960X-24PD-L Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series 24-Ports PoE Manageable Layer 2 Ethernet Switch allow it to provide power to connected devices over the Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for additional power sources and making it a cost-effective solution for powering PoE-enabled devices.

Switching Capacity and Bandwidth

The WS-C2960X-24PD-L Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series 24-Ports PoE Manageable Layer 2 Ethernet Switch has a switching capacity of 176 Gbps and a maximum forwarding rate of 130.95 Mbps. This means that the switch is able to handle a high volume of traffic and forward packets quickly.

In terms of bandwidth, each port on the switch supports a maximum of 10/100/1000Mbps with auto-negotiation. This allows the switch to support high-bandwidth applications and services, such as video streaming and large file transfers.

Additionally, the switch supports Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) which allows you to bundle multiple physical ports together to increase bandwidth. This allows you to increase the available bandwidth on the switch to support high-bandwidth applications and services.

The switch also supports Quality of Service (QoS) which allows you to prioritize certain types of traffic, such as voice and video, over less critical traffic. This can help ensure that important traffic is delivered in a timely manner and does not get bogged down by less important traffic.

The switch also supports jumbo frames of up to 9216 bytes which allows for larger packets to be transmitted on the network, this is useful for certain applications such as video conferencing, large file transfer, etc.
