Faq (WS-C2960S-24TS-S)

What are the obvious differences between WS-C2960S-24TS-L and WS-C2960S-24TS-S?

WS-C2960S-24TS-L is Lan Lite Switch.but WS-C2960S-24TS-S is the Lan Base. The obvious differences is hardware differences.The LAN Base owns advanced Layer 2 and mainly is designed for large enterprise. However, The LAN Lite offers entry-level L2 features ,which aims at mid market deployments.

Do I need a software license for the WS-C2960S-24TS-S?

No. Cisco Catalyst 2960-S and 2960-SF Series Switches use the Universal image, but no license is required. The feature is bound to the hardware model type and cannot be changed. For convenience, a single software image is used for all Cisco Catalyst 2960-S and 2960-SF Series Switches, regardless of whether they are a LAN Base or LAN Lite model.

Can the WS-C2960S-24TS-S be upgraded to LAN Base switch?

No. The feature set is bound to the hardware model. To get the features and capabilities of LAN Base, you must purchase a LAN Base switch.

Does the WS-C2960S-24TS-S has a K9 and non-K9 Cisco IOS Software image?

No. The only image is the K9 image. The K9 image is loaded during manufacture.

Can I obtain a Cisco IOS Software update for the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S and 2960-SF Series at no additional cost?

Yes. Cisco offers ongoing Cisco IOS Software updates for certain fixed-configuration and stackable Cisco Catalyst switches at no additional cost. For the life of the product, updates within the Cisco IOS Software package purchased (LAN Lite and LAN Base) will be made available.

How can I keep unauthorized users from accessing my network?

The Cisco Catalyst 2960-S and 2960-SF Series supports the IEEE 802.1X standard, which works in conjunction with a RADIUS server to authenticate users as they access a network. Additionally, portions of the network can be restricted by using ACLs. Access can be denied based on MAC addresses, IP addresses, or TCP/User Datagram Protocol (UDP) ports. ACL lookups are done in hardware and do not compromise forwarding and routing performance. An additional protection method is to use port security, which helps ensure that the appropriate user is on the network by limiting access to the port based on MAC addresses.

What is FlexStack’s recovery time for a link outage?

The recovery time for end-user traffic will be 1 to 2 seconds, depending upon the number of members in the stack.

Do Cisco Catalyst 2960-S and 2960-SF Series Switches use a spanning tree across the stack?

No. FlexStack uses a formula based on the shortest path to help ensure that packets that need to be sent to all stack members are forwarded to all members but that no member sees the same packet twice. It’s not Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) but is based on the master’s computation of the shortest path.

Can I insert the FlexStack module with the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S or 2960-SF switches powered on and operational?

Yes. The FlexStack module is hot swappable. However, when a switch joins an existing stack, new members are always rebooted.

Can the LAN Lite models join a FlexStack?

No. LAN Lite switches do not support FlexStack capability.
