Troubleshooting and Maintenance of Switch
The WS-X6548-RJ-45 is a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series switch module that has 48 ports for connecting devices. It is a popular module for use in enterprise network environments.
Troubleshooting the WS-X6548-RJ-45 module may involve checking for hardware or software issues. Common issues include:
- Port status not showing as "up" or "down"
- High CPU or memory usage
- Loss of connectivity or slow network performance
- Error messages or logs indicating a problem
To troubleshoot the module, you can use the Cisco IOS command-line interface (CLI) to check the status of the ports and the module's resources. The "show interfaces" and "show processes" commands can provide information about the status of the ports and the module's CPU and memory usage.
Maintenance for the WS-X6548-RJ-45 module may include performing software upgrades, backing up the configuration, and replacing failed components. It is also important to follow best practices for cabling and power to ensure proper operation.
Features and Benefits
The WS-X6548-RJ-45 is a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series switch module that provides 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports for connecting devices to the network. It is a popular module for use in enterprise network environments due to its high port density and ability to support high-bandwidth applications.
Some of the key features of the WS-X6548-RJ-45 module include:
- Support for 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet speeds on all ports
- Support for advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), VLANs, and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP)
- Support for Cisco's FlexLink feature, which allows for automatic recovery from link failures
- Support for Cisco's StackWise technology, which allows multiple switch modules to be combined and managed as a single unit
Some of the benefits of using the WS-X6548-RJ-45 module include:
- High port density allows for efficient use of rack space and reduced costs
- Support for high-bandwidth applications such as video and voice over IP
- Support for advanced features allows for better control and management of network traffic
- StackWise technology allows for simplified management and increased scalability
It is also a cost effective solution for Ethernet access and aggregation in enterprise access layer and converged access environment, providing high-performance, non-blocking, line-rate 10/100/1000Mbps throughput and wire-speed performance for both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic.
Power and Energy Efficiency
The WS-X6548-RJ-45 is a Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series switch module that provides 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports for connecting devices to the network. The module is designed to be energy efficient and consume less power.
The WS-X6548-RJ-45 module supports Cisco EnergyWise, which is a Cisco technology that helps organizations measure, report, and reduce the energy consumed by devices on the network. EnergyWise allows the switch to monitor the power usage of connected devices, and adjust their power levels as needed to reduce energy consumption.
Additionally, the module also supports the IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard, which reduces power consumption during periods of low network activity. This feature allows the switch to enter a low-power idle state when there is no network traffic, reducing energy consumption without affecting network performance.
Furthermore, The WS-X6548-RJ-45 module also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) and PoE+, allowing it to provide power to devices such as phones, cameras and wireless access points over the Ethernet cables, reducing the need for additional power cabling and outlets.

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.
