Faq (WS-C2960S-48TS-L)

What is .1q tunnel?

IEEE802.1Q Tunneling.

I was research some of the feature of 15.0.2 and I wonder if I can find IEEE802.1Q Tunneling feature in that IOS.

YES, even IP Base IOS would support this feature.

Hello, I need a model switch like this: Gigabit switch 48 port • Device Type: Gigabit Managed switch 48 port • Fiber support: Yes • Enclosure Type: Rack-mountable • Communication Mode : Half-duplex, full-duplex • RAM :64 MB • Flash Memory: 32 MB • Switching Protocol: Ethernet • Ports Qty : 48 x Ethernet 10Base-T, Ethernet 100Base-TX • Remote Management Protocol: SNMP 1, RMON, Telnet,SNMP 3, SNMP 2c • Auxiliary Network Ports: 2x10/100/1000Base-T(uplink) • Data Link Protocol” Ethernet, Fast Ethernet • Connectivity Technology Which one is better for me?

Gigabit switch 48 port? The WS-C2960S-48TS-L or WS-C2960X-48TS-L is okay.

Can I upgrade or downgrade a Cisco Catalyst 2960-S or 2960-SF Series Switch between the LAN Base and LAN Lite images?

No. Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series Switches cannot be upgraded from LAN Lite to LAN Base and cannot be downgraded from LAN Base to LAN Lite.

Does the WS-C2960S-48TS-L support IPv6?

Yes. Cisco Catalyst 2960-S and 2960-SF are IPv6 certified. These switches with LAN Base software support IPv6 host, management, MLD snooping, port-based ACLs, router ACLs, and First Hop Security (RA Guard, Source Guard, and Binding Integrity Guard).

Do I need a software license for the WS-C2960S-48TS-L?

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 I stack a Cisco Catalyst 2960-S with the 2960-SF in the same stack?

Yes. Both these families support FlexStack and can be in the same stack.

Do the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S and 2960-SF support field-replaceable fans?

No. All fans are fixed inside the chassis of the switch.

Do I have to install a license to use the WS-C2960S-48TS-L Universal image?

No. All Catalyst 2960-S and 2960-SF models use the Universal image. The license associated with the switch at manufacturing is the only license needed. The feature set is fixed during manufacture

Does the WS-C2960S-48TS-L has redundant power supply (RPS) support?

Yes, the WS-C2960S-48TS-L has RPS support

Stack Cisco 2960s

The Cisco 2960s is still a great switch. Definitely stack them if they are in the same rack.

ws c2960s 48ts l

I bought three Catalyst 2960S-48TS-L switches and used the backplane cables to bridge them together. What can I say, Cisco = Rock solid reliability. It’s easy to use. I use the CNA and they\'re bullet proof. Wish I would buy one or two PoE, however.

Cisco WS-C2960S-48TS-L

I have a Cisco WS-C2960S-48TS-L but I don\'t have an SFP module for the uplink. Can I just use one of the 48 LAN ports to connect to the upstream router? The uplink circuit will be less than 50 Mb anyway.
