We are giving specifications below, why one should consider procuring Cisco 48 Port Switch Networking features, a general overview, description, performance specification, relevant images, a competitive price infographic, and technical information about the WS-X6248A-TEL model with compatibility.

Scalable and High-Performance

The WS-X6248A-TEL Cisco Catalyst 6000 48 Ports Ethernet Switching Module is a high-performance and scalable switch module that is designed for use in enterprise networks. It provides 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports, which allow for high-speed data transfer and support for a large number of connected devices. The module supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), which allows for prioritization of different types of network traffic, and VLANs, which enable the creation of virtual networks within a single physical network. Additionally, the module supports Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), which allows for the bundling of multiple physical links to form a single logical link, providing increased bandwidth and redundancy.

The module also supports the Cisco IOS Software, which allows for easy management and configuration of the switch. This software provides a wide range of features such as security, network management, and troubleshooting tools. The module also supports a variety of protocols, including IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS, which makes it versatile and adaptable to different network environments.

Quality of Service (QoS) Support

The WS-X6248A-TEL Cisco Catalyst 6000 48 Ports Ethernet Switching Module supports Quality of Service (QoS) features that allow network administrators to prioritize different types of network traffic. This ensures that critical traffic such as voice or video is given priority over less important traffic such as file downloads. This helps to ensure that important applications and services have the necessary bandwidth and low latency to function properly.

The module supports a variety of QoS features such as:

  • Class-Based Weighted Fair Queuing (CBWFQ) - This allows for the configuration of different queues for different types of traffic, with each queue having a specific bandwidth allocation.
  • Low Latency Queuing (LLQ) - This feature allows for the configuration of a priority queue for critical traffic such as voice or video.
  • Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED) - This feature helps to prevent network congestion by randomly dropping packets when the network becomes overloaded.
  • Traffic Shaping and Policing - This feature allows for the control of the rate at which traffic is sent, ensuring that the network is not overwhelmed with traffic.
  • IPv4 and IPv6 Quality of Service (QoS) - The module supports both IPv4 and IPv6 Quality of Service (QoS) which makes it versatile and adaptable to different network environments.

These QoS features can be configured through the Cisco IOS software, which allows for easy management and configuration of the switch.

Security and management

The WS-X6248A-TEL Cisco Catalyst 6000 48 Ports Ethernet Switching Module provides a variety of security and management features to help protect and manage enterprise networks.

In terms of security, the module supports features such as:

  • Access Control Lists (ACLs) - This allows network administrators to create and implement rules that restrict access to specific network resources based on the source and destination IP addresses, ports, and protocols.
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN) - This feature allows for secure remote access to the network through the use of encryption.
  • IEEE 802.1X Network Login - This feature allows for the authentication of devices before they are allowed to access the network.
  • Secure Shell (SSH) - This feature provides secure remote access to the switch's command-line interface (CLI) through the use of encryption.

In terms of management, the module supports features such as:

  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) - This allows for the monitoring and management of the switch through the use of network management systems.
  • Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) - This allows for the automatic discovery of Cisco devices on the network.
  • Remote monitoring (RMON) - This feature allows for the monitoring of network traffic and statistics.
  • Cisco IOS Software - This provides a wide range of features such as security, network management, and troubleshooting tools, allowing for easy management and configuration of the switch.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

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.
