Product Overview for the Cisco WS-C3560CX-8PT-S 8 Ports Switch

The WS-C3560CX-8PT-S is a model of Cisco's Catalyst 3560-CX series of Ethernet switches. This switch has 8 Ethernet ports and is designed for use in small and medium-sized enterprise networks. It provides a variety of features, including support for 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet speeds, PoE (Power over Ethernet) capability, and advanced security features such as access control lists (ACLs) and Quality of Service (QoS). The 3560-CX series switches also offer energy-efficient features, such as Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), which can help reduce power consumption in the network. The 3560-CX series also includes network management features, such as a built-in web interface and support for SNMP.

8 Ports Ethernet

The switch is equipped with 8 Ethernet ports, enabling seamless connectivity for multiple devices within the network. These ports support high-speed data transfer, making them ideal for scenarios where bandwidth-intensive applications are prevalent.

Layer 3 Capabilities

The designation Layer 3 in the Cisco WS-C3560CX-8PT-S indicates that this switch operates at the network layer of the OSI model. This implies that it possesses routing capabilities, allowing it to make intelligent decisions based on IP addresses, thereby facilitating efficient data traffic management.

2x 1GE Copper Uplink Ports

The inclusion of 2 Gigabit Ethernet (1GE) copper uplink ports is a notable feature of the Cisco WS-C3560CX-8PT-S. These ports serve as the gateway for connecting the switch to the broader network, ensuring that data can flow in and out at high speeds. The copper medium adds to the reliability and stability of the connections.

Simplified Management

The managed nature of the switch, combined with the intuitive Cisco IOS software, ensures that administrators can easily configure and monitor the device. This simplifies the management of the network, reducing the likelihood of errors and enhancing overall efficiency.

Robust Performance

Performance is a key consideration in network infrastructure, and the Cisco WS-C3560CX-8PT-S doesn't disappoint. The switch's Gigabit Ethernet ports, coupled with Layer 3 capabilities, contribute to a network that can handle data-intensive tasks with ease.


The WS-C3560CX-8PT-S Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX Series 8 Ports Ethernet Switch is designed for high performance and reliability. The switch is capable of forwarding packets at wire speed on all ports, ensuring that network traffic is handled quickly and efficiently. It also features a non-blocking architecture that allows for maximum throughput, even when the switch is operating at full capacity.

In terms of reliability, the 3560-CX series switch has some features that help to ensure that the network remains up and running. For example, it supports Cisco StackWise-160 technology, which allows multiple switches to be connected and managed as a single, virtual switch. This helps to provide redundancy and high availability in the event of a switch failure. The switch also supports RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) and MSTP (Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol) to ensure that the network remains stable in the event of a link failure.

Additionally, It has a built-in power supply with an Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which helps reduce energy consumption and heat dissipation, therefore, improving the overall reliability of the switch. it also supports redundant firmware image with an auto-upgrade feature which upgrade the firmware automatically without interrupting the network operation.

Interface Provided for Digital Workplace

The model Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX Series switch provides a range of interfaces for connecting devices in a digital workplace. The switch has 8 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports, which can be used to connect devices such as computers, printers, and servers. These ports also support Power over Ethernet (PoE), which allows devices such as IP phones and wireless access points to receive power through the Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for separate power sources.

Additionally, the switch has 2 SFP (small form-factor pluggable) ports, which can be used to connect to fiber-optic networks. These ports support a variety of SFP transceiver modules, including those for both short- and long-distance connections, allowing for flexibility in network design.

Furthermore, The switch also provides a web interface for management and monitoring of the switch, it also allows for remote management of the switch via SNMP, SSH, and Telnet, which allows for easy management from anywhere on the network.

The switch also supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), which allows you to prioritize different types of network traffic to ensure that mission-critical applications receive the bandwidth they need.

All in all, the WS-C3560CX-8PT-S switch provides a range of interfaces and features that are well suited to the needs of a digital workplace, allowing for easy connection and management of devices and ensuring reliable and secure network connectivity.
