Faq (WS-C2960X-48LPS-L)

Hello, is the Cisco2960XR covered under E-LLW?

Hmm, Yes and no. Yes, you still need to "tie" the serial numbers of your appliances to a valid Cisco Service Contract. In some cases, TAC will not honor the LLW/E-LLW until you point them to the documentation. So keep the link to the LLW/E-LLW handy.

Hello, can you tell the main features of Cisco 2960-XR, compared to catalyst 2960-X?

Compared to Catalyst 2960-X, the catalyst 2960-XR has additional features: Dual-FRU power supply with integrated fan (2960-XR only); Layer 3 features(2960-XR only) with IP Lite feature set; Configurable 8 queues per port (standalone); 48 Ether channel groups.

 Do I need a software license for the WS-C2960X-48LPS-L ?

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

Can the WS-C2960X-48LPS-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.

Can the Cisco FlexStack-Plus is supported by the WS-C2960X-48LPS-L?

Yes, Cisco FlexStack-Plus is supported by the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series and allows the stacking of up to eight switches, with a throughput of 80 gigabits per second.

What are the FlexStack-Plus high-availability features?

The following features enhance high availability and manageability across a stack:  ● Cross-stack EtherChannel ●   SPAN ●   FlexLink technology ●   Hitless voice calls

 What is the minimum Cisco IOS Software version required for FlexStack-Extended?

FlexStack-Extended is supported from version 15.2(6)E onward.

What is Downlink Hibernation Mode in the WS-C2960X-48LPS-L?

Downlink Hibernation Mode (DHM) feature enables all 2960-X switches to save power on the downlink ports. The switch supports static downlink port power-down where only the PHY and Optics are powered down when not in use.

Can Cisco Catalyst 2960-X switches and 2960-XR switches stack together?

No. Cisco Catalyst 2960-X and 2960-XR switches can’t stack together since they don’t share common feature set model.

 Can LAN Base and IP Lite feature set models stack together in the WS-C2960X-24PS-L?

No, LAN Base and IP Lite feature set models cannot be stacked together. LAN Base feature set models can stack with LAN Base feature set models only. Similarly, IP Lite feature set models can stack with IP Lite feature set models only.

48 GigE PoE 370W, 4 x 1G SFP…These functions are better than my old Cisco switch.

Works great

Works great. We tried to power some Ubiquiti APs with this and although they did power up, they had connectivity issues. So I would only use this to power Aeronets and use PoE injectors for any other brand of APs.

PoE switch

It does what is suppose to do. This switch is a little pricey but it is an enterprise switch. We bought this one to put in place with a VoIP phone system. We needed PoE to power the phones,so it's real what we want.

quick delivery of WS-C2960X-48LPS-L

We received the switch in a timely manner. Good supplier! and moreover, this model is 2960-X Series, supporting 48 PoE Ports. Very wonderful. It works well with other Cisco gears, like routers ASA firewalls, etc.
