The Cisco WS-C4948E-E Catalyst SFP+ 48-Ports Switch is a high-performance, enterprise-grade network switch designed for use in data center and campus environments. It is built on Cisco's proven Catalyst switch platform and provides 48 10 Gigabit SFP+ ports for high-speed connectivity. The switch also includes advanced features such as Cisco's FlexStack-Plus technology for stacking multiple switches together, and the ability to support both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols. This makes it ideal for use in large, high-bandwidth environments where scalability and reliability are important considerations. Additionally, the switch is built with a modular architecture, which allows for easy upgrades and maintenance, making it a versatile and cost-effective solution for network administrators.
The Cisco WS-C4948E-E Catalyst SFP+ 48-Ports Switch is a high-performance, enterprise-level switch that is designed for use in data centers, service provider networks, and other high-bandwidth environments. This switch is built on the Cisco Catalyst 4900 Series platform, which is known for its high-performance, high-availability, and robust security features.
One of the key features of this switch is its 48 SFP+ ports, which support 10 Gigabit Ethernet speeds and allow for high-speed data transfer between connected devices. The switch also supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), and Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) to help optimize network performance and ensure smooth data transfer.
The switch also includes advanced security features such as access control lists (ACLs) and Cisco TrustSec, which allow administrators to secure their networks and protect against threats such as malware and unauthorized access. Additionally, the switch is designed with high availability features such as redundancy and failover to help prevent network downtime and ensure continuous connectivity.
The Cisco WS-C4948E-E Catalyst switch is a high-performance, enterprise-class switch that is designed for use in large data centers and other demanding network environments. One of its key features is its high port density, with 48 SFP+ (small form-factor pluggable plus) ports that support 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections.
One of the key factors that contribute to the reliability of the model switch is its hardware architecture. The switch is built using Cisco's proprietary ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) technology, which allows for high-performance, low-latency switching. Additionally, the switch is built with redundant power supplies and fans, which helps to ensure that the switch can continue to operate even if one of these components fails.
This product also supports a variety of advanced software features that can help to improve the reliability of your network. One such feature is Cisco's FlexLink technology, which allows for fast recovery from link failures and can help to minimize the impact of network outages. Additionally, the switch supports advanced Quality of Service (QoS) features, which can help to ensure that important network traffic is given priority over less important traffic, reducing the likelihood of network congestion and packet loss.

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.
