The Cisco®Catalyst®2960-S Series Switches are fixed-configuration Gigabit Ethernet switches (Figure 1) that provide enterprise-class Layer 2 switching for campus and branch access applications. They enable reliable and secure business operations with lower total cost of ownership through a range of innovative features including FlexStack, Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), and Cisco Catalyst SmartOperations

Cisco Catalyst 2960-S switches feature:

  • 24 or 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • 1G Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) or 1G/10G SFP+ slots
  • Cisco FlexStack stacking with 20 Gbps of stack throughput (optional)
  • IEEE 802.3at-compliant PoE+ for up to 30W of power per port
  • Up to 740W of combined PoE/PoE+ budget
  • USB interfaces for management and file transfers
  • LAN Base or LAN Lite Cisco IOS®Software feature set
  • SmartOperations tools that simplify deployment and reduce the cost of network administration
  • An enhanced limited lifetime hardware warranty (E-LLW), providing next-business-day replacement

The Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series is ideal for:

  • Deploying cost-effective wired connectivity in traditional desktop workspace environments
  • Implementing quality of service (QoS) to provide priority treatment of voice and critical business applications
  • Enforcing basic security policies to limit access tothenetwork and mitigate threats
  • Reducing total cost of ownership through simplified operations and automation
