The switching capacity of a network switch refers to the amount of data that the switch can process in a given time period. The WS-C4948-S Cisco Catalyst 48 Ports Gigabit Ethernet Switch has a switching capacity of 96 Gbps.
This means that the switch is capable of forwarding up to 96 Gbps of data across its ports simultaneously. The switching capacity is determined by the internal switching fabric of the switch, which is responsible for forwarding data between ports.
In addition to its high switching capacity, the WS-C4948-S also supports wire-speed performance on all 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports. This means that each port can support data transfer rates of up to 1 Gbps, without any degradation in performance.
The high switching capacity of the WS-C4948-S makes it suitable for enterprise-level networks that require high-speed connectivity and the ability to handle large amounts of data traffic. It also supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), VLANs, Access Control Lists (ACLs), and Multicast routing, providing administrators with granular control over network traffic and security.
