Cisco Catalyst console cables:
- CAB-CONSOLE-RJ45 Console cable 6 ft. with RJ-45
- The internal power supply is an auto-ranging unit and supports input voltages between 100 and 240V AC.
- Use the supplied AC power cord to connect the AC power connector to an AC power outlet.
- The Cisco RPS connector offers connection for an optional Cisco RPS 2300 that uses AC input and supplies DC output to the switch.
- Only the Cisco RPS 2300 (model PWR-RPS2300) should be attached to the redundant-power-system receptacle.

How is the Cisco Catalyst 2960-Plus different from the Cisco Catalyst 2960?
The Cisco Catalyst 2960-Plus is based on the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series of Fast Ethernet switches and uses the same architecture as its predecessor. To enable new software features and releases, the 2960-Plus includes double the RAM (128 MB) and flash memory (64 MB) of the earlier models. In addition, all models of 2960-Plus include both optical (Small Form-Factor Pluggable [SFP]) and copper (1000BASE-T) Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.
What are the notable differences between the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S, 2960-SF, and 2960-Plus Series Switches?
The Cisco Catalyst 2960-S and 2960-SF Series Switches are based on a more advanced hardware platform than the 2960-Plus, which provides a number of advantages, including: • Cisco FlexStack stacking capabilities• 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks with SFP+ (2960-S only)• Support for Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+)• Cisco Generic Online Diagnostics (GOLD) and onboard failure logging (OBFL)• USB interfaces for file transfer and management• 10/100 out-of-band (OOB) management
How can I tell the difference between the LAN Base and LAN Lite switches?
LAN Lite models can be identified based on the text printed on the switch bezel. On the front of the switch, in the top-right corner, LAN Lite switches will read "Catalyst 2960 Plus Series SI." LAN Base switches read "Catalyst 2960-Plus Series."
Can I upgrade or downgrade a Cisco Catalyst 2960-Plus Series Switch between the LAN Base and LAN Lite images?
No. Cisco Catalyst 2960-Plus Series Switches cannot be upgraded from LAN Lite to LAN Base and cannot be downgraded from LAN Base to LAN Lite.
Does the WS-C2960+24TC-L support IPv6?
Cisco Catalyst 2960-Plus Series Switches support IPv6 management. A more advanced IPv6 feature set, including first-hop security features, is available on the Cisco Catalyst 2960-SF Series.
What types of services and support are available for the WS-C2960+24TC-L?
A full complement of lifecycle services and support is available for the Cisco Catalyst 2960-Plus Series Switches. From implementation to operation and optimization, Cisco offers technical support service delivered either directly or through a Cisco partner.
What is the software update policy for WS-C2960+24TC-L with LAN Base software?
Customers with Cisco Catalyst LAN Base software licenses will be provided with maintenance updates and bug fixes designed to maintain the compliance of the software with published specifications, release notes, and industry standards compliance as long as the original end user continues to own or use the product or up to one year from the end-of-sale date for this product, whichever occurs earlier. Customers with licenses for our premium software images, Enterprise Services, or IP Services require a service support contract such as Cisco SMARTnet ® Service to download updates.
How can I monitor or track activities in my network?
The Cisco Catalyst 2960-Plus Series can complement an IDS or firewall with features such as MAC address notification, which sends an alert to a management station so that network administrators know when and where users come onto the network and can take appropriate action. The DHCP Interface Tracker (option 82) feature tracks where a user is physically connected on a network by providing both switch and port ID to a DHCP server. DHCP snooping enables the administrator to keep track of both dynamic and static IP/MAC mapping tables.
Does the WS-C2960+24TC-L support MACsec (802.1ae)?
No. MACsec is supported on other Cisco Catalyst switches, including the Cisco Catalyst 3750-X and Cisco Catalyst 3850.
Does the WS-C2960+24TC-L support Cisco EnergyWise ™?
