The Cisco WS-C2960S-48TS-S is a 48-port managed switch from the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series. This switch is designed for use in enterprise and mid-sized businesses, and it provides a number of features to help improve the performance and security of networks.
One of the key features of the WS-C2960S-48TS-S is its support for Power over Ethernet (PoE), which allows the switch to power network devices such as IP phones and wireless access points over the same Ethernet cables that are used for data transmission. This eliminates the need for separate power cables and makes it easy to deploy and manage devices that require power.
Another important feature of the WS-C2960S-48TS-S is its ability to provide quality of service (QoS) controls, which allow administrators to prioritize certain types of network traffic, such as voice and video, to ensure that they are delivered with minimal delay and interruption.
The switch also provides advanced security features to help protect against network threats. These include access control lists (ACLs), which allow administrators to specify which types of traffic are permitted to pass through the switch, and network admission control (NAC), which helps to ensure that only authorized devices are able to access the network.
Reliability of Cisco Switch
The Cisco WS-C2960S-48TS-S is a reliable managed switch that is designed for use in enterprise and mid-sized businesses. The switch is built with high-quality components and is designed to meet industry standards for performance and reliability.
One of the key factors that contributes to the reliability of the WS-C2960S-48TS-S is its support for features such as Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), which help to ensure that network connections are stable and that traffic is load-balanced across multiple links.
The switch also provides advanced security features to help protect against network threats, such as access control lists (ACLs) and network admission control (NAC). These features allow administrators to specify which types of traffic are permitted to pass through the switch and ensure that only authorized devices are able to access the network.
Power and Innovation of 2960 Seris Switch
The Cisco WS-C2960S-48TS-S is a managed Ethernet switch from the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series. It has 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports and is designed for use in small and medium-sized business networks. The switch offers a wide range of features and is built on a powerful and flexible platform, making it a good choice for environments that require high performance and advanced networking capabilities.
One of the key strengths of the part is its power and innovation. The switch supports Cisco EnergyWise technology, which helps to reduce power consumption and lower operating costs. This technology allows you to monitor and manage the power consumption of your network devices and helps you to identify areas where power usage can be reduced.
This product also includes Cisco FlexStack technology, which allows you to stack multiple switches together to create a single logical unit with up to 9 switches. This makes it easy to manage a large number of ports and allows you to scale your network as needed.
Additionally, the product supports advanced security features, such as access control lists (ACLs) and Cisco TrustSec. TrustSec technology enables the identity-based security policy, which allows to provide access control based on the identity of the user and device, it makes it possible to enforce security policies on all connected devices, regardless of their location.
In terms of performance, the model is capable of forwarding packets at a rate of up to 38.7 Mpps (million packets per second), which is more than enough for most small and medium-sized business networks. It also supports a variety of Layer 2 and Layer 3 features, such as Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP).

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.
