Faq (WS-C2960X-48FPD-L)

What’s the main difference between WS-C2960X-48FPD-L and WS-C2960X-48LPD-L?

Both have several same functions such as Uplinks, LAN Base software and FlexStack-Plus Stacking of Optical, but they have different PoE+ Power, the WS-C2960X-48FPD-L is 740W and WS-C2960X-48LPD-L is 370W.

Are the IOS of LAN Lite, LAN Base, and IP Lite supported in 2960-X Series Switches?

Hmm, Yes and no, for 2960-XR, IP Lite (Layer 3), yes. LAN Base and LAN Lite(both are Basic Layer 2) are not. But for 2960-X, LAN Base and LAN Lite are supported and IP Lite, no here.

I bought 3 Cisco 2960-X series switches recently. I wanna know, to how many end devices the Cisco 2960-X Series can provide PoE and PoE+?

Hi, the 2960X-48FPD-L and C2960X-48FPS-L can support 48 PoE ports with full Class 3 PoE power of 15.4W each, for a total output capacity of 740W. All Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series Switches with PoE capability support PoE+.

Can the WS-C2960X-48FPD-L feature set license be upgraded?

No. The feature set is bound to the hardware model. To get the features and capabilities of IP Lite, you must purchase an IP Lite switch.

What is difference between FlexStack and FlexStack-Plus technology?

The FlexStack-Plus technology is similar to FlexStack technology except it supports up to 8 stackable members, and higher bandwidth.

Can a third-party USB Flash drive be used with the WS-C2960X-48FPD-L?

Yes, a third-party USB Flash drive can be used with the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series. They will work, but are not officially supported.

Do the WS-C2960X-48FPD-L support front-to-back airflow?

The airflow on the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series is “front and sides” to back airflow.

Is the airflow reversible in the WS-C2960X-48FPD-L?

No. The airflow is not reversible.

Can we increase the PoE budget of WS-C2960X-48FPD-L by replacing its power supply with a high-capacity power supply?

The available PoE budget is fixed for a given model of Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series Switch. Replacing the switch power supply will not increase the PoE budget.

Do the WS-C2960X-48FPD-L have feature parity with the existing Cisco Catalyst 2960 switches?

  Yes. The Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series has all the features of the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series. All Cisco Catalyst 2960 switches run the same Cisco IOS Software train, which provides maximum compatibility.
