The Catalyst WS-C3560-48PS-E is a high-performance Ethernet switch from Cisco. It is part of the Cisco Catalyst 3560 series, which is designed for use in enterprise networks and provides advanced features for security, quality of service (QoS), and network management.
The switch has 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 4 SFP (small form-factor pluggable) ports for fiber connectivity. These ports can be configured as either 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports or as SFP ports for fiber connectivity. This provides flexibility in connecting different types of devices to the switch, such as servers, workstations, and storage devices.
The switch also has advanced features for security, such as access control lists (ACLs) and IEEE 802.1X port-based authentication, which can be used to limit access to the network and protect against unauthorized access.
It also provides Quality of Service (QoS) features that allow you to prioritize different types of traffic, such as voice and video, to ensure that these types of traffic receive the bandwidth they need.
Additionally, the switch has a number of network management features, such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) support, CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS) support, and Cisco IOS Software. These features allow for the monitoring and management of the switch and the network as a whole.
Resiliency and High Availability
The Catalyst WS-C3560-48PS-E Ethernet 48 Ports 10/100 PoE + 4 SFP Switch is designed to provide resiliency and high availability in order to ensure that the network remains operational even in the event of a failure or interruption.
Resiliency refers to the ability of the switch to continue functioning even in the event of a failure, such as a power outage or a software malfunction. The switch can be configured with redundancy features, such as dual power supplies, to ensure that it can continue to operate even if one power supply fails. This can also include the use of Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) for link resiliency.
High availability refers to the ability of the switch to provide continuous network service with minimal downtime. The switch can be configured to provide redundancy at the network level, such as using Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) or Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) to ensure that there is always a backup switch available to take over in the event of a failure.
The switch also has advanced features like Quality of Service (QoS) and security capabilities like Access Control List (ACL) that can be used to prioritize and secure network traffic.
In addition, the switch also includes features such as Cisco StackWise technology and StackPower which enhance the resiliency and high availability of the switch and the network as a whole.
Remote Management Protocol
The Catalyst WS-C3560-48PS-E is a Cisco Ethernet switch that has 48 10/100 ports and 4 Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) ports, and it also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) for powering devices such as IP phones and wireless access points.
Remote management protocols are used to allow the switch to be configured and managed remotely, without the need for a direct physical connection.
The switch supports multiple remote management protocols, such as:
- Telnet: Telnet is a terminal emulation protocol that allows remote access to command-line interfaces on devices such as switches and routers.
- SSH (Secure Shell): SSH is a secure version of Telnet that encrypts the communication between the remote device and the management station.
- SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol): SNMP is a widely used protocol for network management that allows network devices to be monitored and managed remotely.
- HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol): HTTP is used to access the switch's web interface, which provides a graphical user interface for configuring and managing the switch.
- HTTPS (HTTP Secure): HTTPS is a secure version of HTTP that encrypts the communication between the web interface and the management station.

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.
