In this detailed review, we will explore the key features, specifications, and benefits of the Cisco WS-C3560-48PS-E, shedding light on its performance, scalability, and overall suitability for different applications.

Key Features

Port Configuration

The Cisco WS-C3560-48PS-E comes equipped with 48 Ethernet 10/100 ports, providing high-speed connectivity for a multitude of devices. These ports are essential for connecting computers, printers, IP phones, and other networked devices, facilitating seamless communication within an organization. Additionally, the switch boasts 4 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports, enabling high-speed data transfer and supporting the integration of fiber-optic connections for extended reach.

Power over Ethernet

One standout feature of the WS-C3560-48PS-E is its Power over Ethernet capability. With Power over Ethernet, the switch can deliver electrical power to connected devices, such as IP cameras, wireless access points, and VoIP phones, through the same Ethernet cable used for data transmission. This not only simplifies cable management but also eliminates the need for separate power sources for these devices, contributing to a more organized and efficient network setup.


Scalability is a critical consideration in networking infrastructure, especially in growing businesses. The Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch series is known for its scalability, and the WS-C3560-48PS-E is no exception. With 48 ports for Ethernet connectivity and 4 additional Gigabit Ethernet ports, this switch provides the flexibility to expand the network as the organization evolves. The switch's modular design ensures that it can accommodate future growth and adapt to changing network requirements.

Layer 2 and Layer 3 Functionality

The WS-C3560-48PS-E supports both Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionality, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. In Layer 2 mode, the switch operates at the data link layer, facilitating efficient switching and filtering of frames. Layer 3 functionality, on the other hand, enables the switch to perform routing functions, allowing for more advanced network configurations. This dual-layer capability enhances the switch's versatility and makes it adaptable to diverse networking scenarios.

Advanced Security Features

Security is a top priority in any network infrastructure, and the Cisco WS-C3560-48PS-E incorporates advanced security features to safeguard against unauthorized access and potential threats. The switch supports features such as port security, access control lists (ACLs), and DHCP snooping, providing administrators with tools to control and monitor network access. Additionally, the switch supports 802.1X authentication, enhancing overall network security by ensuring that only authorized devices can connect to the network.


Enhanced Connectivity

The inclusion of 48 Ethernet 10/100 ports ensures that the Cisco WS-C3560-48PS-E can accommodate a large number of devices within the network. This is particularly beneficial in office environments where multiple workstations, printers, and other networked devices need reliable and high-speed connectivity.
Flexibility with SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet Ports: The 4 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports provide flexibility in network design, allowing for the integration of fiber-optic connections. This is advantageous in scenarios where extended reach or higher data transfer rates are required, such as connecting between different floors or buildings within an organization.

Cost-Efficient Power Delivery

The Power over Ethernet capability of the switch eliminates the need for separate power sources for connected devices, leading to cost savings in both equipment and operational expenses. This is particularly beneficial for organizations deploying IP cameras, wireless access points, or VoIP phones, as it simplifies installation and reduces overall infrastructure costs.

Scalability for Future Growth

The WS-C3560-48PS-E is designed with scalability in mind, allowing organizations to expand their network infrastructure as needed. The 48 Ethernet ports provide ample room for growth, and the additional Gigabit Ethernet ports ensure that the switch can handle increased data traffic as the network expands.
Efficient Layer 3 Routing: The Layer 3 functionality of the switch enables efficient routing within the network, supporting more complex configurations. This is particularly valuable for organizations with multiple subnets or a need for inter-VLAN routing, enhancing overall network performance and efficiency.

Robust Security Measures

The advanced security features of the WS-C3560-48PS-E contribute to a secure network environment. Port security, access control lists, DHCP snooping, and 802.1X authentication provide administrators with the tools needed to control access and mitigate potential security threats.

Reliability and Durability

Cisco is renowned for producing reliable and durable networking equipment, and the WS-C3560-48PS-E is no exception. With a robust build quality and adherence to industry standards, this switch offers long-term reliability, minimizing downtime and ensuring continuous network operation.


Enterprise Networks
The Cisco WS-C3560-48PS-E is well-suited for medium to large enterprise networks where a multitude of devices need to be connected. The switch's scalability, Power over Ethernet capability, and advanced security features make it an ideal choice for organizations with complex networking requirements.
IP Surveillance Systems
The Power over Ethernet capability of the switch makes it an excellent choice for IP surveillance systems. It can power IP cameras over the same Ethernet cable used for data transmission, simplifying installation and reducing the need for separate power sources in surveillance deployments.
Voice over IP (VoIP) Deployments
VoIP phone systems require reliable and high-quality network connectivity. The WS-C3560-48PS-E, with its Power over Ethernet support and advanced QoS (Quality of Service) features, is well-suited for VoIP deployments, ensuring clear communication and efficient call handling.
Campus Networks: In educational institutions and corporate campuses, where a large number of users and devices need to be connected, the WS-C3560-48PS-E can serve as a core or distribution switch. Its scalability and Layer 3 routing capabilities make it suitable for handling the diverse networking needs of a campus environment.
