Cisco 2960X,What you want to know • The Catalyst 2960 is the famous flagship switch which has drawn attention all over the world in the months. With Cisco 2960-s model has got the ability to do static routes which was a nicefeature. I used it in some deployments to do routing locally in 2960 and then add a default route towards WAN provider.That way I didn’t have to go through a slow CPE to route my local VLANs. • In order to meet the network users'requirements, Cisco introduced the next generation of its wildly successful Catalyst 2K switches with the new Catalyst 2960-X series.The new Catalyst 2960-X stackable Gigabit Ethernet switch builds on the foundation of the 3-year-old Catalyst 2960-S/SF. It is available in 24- or 48-port configurations, with 10G uplinks and a stacking capacity of 40G-80G.Uplinks are either 2x 10 Gbit SPF+ or 4x 1 Gbit SFP. The PoE models can support 370W or 740W of power. • Note: If you want to know more about WS-C2960X-24TS-L and WS-C2960X-48TS-L , you can follow here.
Cisco has also improved the power consumption on the 2960-X series, claiming up to 80 percent power savings. Part of that savings comes from a new hibernation mode that can be set to conserve energy. The switch also supports Cisco's EnergyWise technology, which can be used to control energy usage on connected devices.
