Cisco® Catalyst® 2960-X Series Switches are fixed-configuration, stackable Gigabit Ethernet switches that provide enterprise-class access for campus and branch applications (Figure 1). Designed for operational simplicity to lower total cost of ownership, they enable scalable, secure and energy-efficient business operations with intelligent services and a range of advanced Cisco IOS® Software features.

Cisco Catalyst 2960-X switches feature:

●   24 or 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports with line-rate forwarding performance

●   Gigabit Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) or 10G SFP+ uplinks

●   FlexStack Plus for stacking of up to 8 switches with 80 Gbps of stack throughput (optional)

●   Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) support with up to 740W of PoE budget

●   24-port PoE fanless switch for deployment outside the wiring closet

●   Reduced power consumption and advanced energy management features

●   USB and Ethernet management interfaces for simplified operations

●   Application visibility and capacity planning with integrated NetFlow-Lite

●   LAN Base or LAN Lite Cisco IOS® software features

●   Enhanced limited lifetime warranty (E-LLW) offering next-business-day hardware replacement

Cisco Catalyst 2960-XR models also offer:

●   Power resiliency with optional dual field-replaceable power supplies

●   IP Lite Cisco IOS® software with dynamic routing and Layer 3 features

Cisco AutoSecure provides a single-line CLI to enable base line security features (Port Security, DHCP snooping, DAI). This feature simplifies security configurations with a single touch.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) autoconfiguration of multiple switches through a boot server eases switch deployment.

Stacking master configuration management and Cisco FlexStack Plus technology helps ensure that all switches are automatically upgraded when the master switch receives a new software version. Automatic software version checking and updating help ensure that all stack members have the same software version.

Autonegotiation on all ports automatically selects half- or full-duplex transmission mode to optimize bandwidth.

Dynamic Trunking Protocol (DTP) facilitates dynamic trunk configuration across all switch ports.

Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) automates the creation of Cisco Fast EtherChannel® groups or Gigabit EtherChannel groups to link to another switch, router, or server.

Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) allows the creation of Ethernet channeling with devices that conform to IEEE 802.3ad. This feature is similar to Cisco EtherChannel technology and PAgP.

Automatic media-dependent interface crossover (MDIX) automatically adjusts transmit and receive pairs if an incorrect cable type (crossover or straight-through) is installed.

Unidirectional Link Detection Protocol (UDLD) and Aggressive UDLD allow unidirectional links caused by incorrect fiber-optic wiring or port faults to be detected and disabled on fiber-optic interfaces.

Switching Database Manager (SDM) templates for access, routing, and VLAN deployment allow the administrator to easily maximize memory allocation to the desired features based on deployment-specific requirements.

Local Proxy Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) works in conjunction with Private VLAN Edge to minimize broadcasts and maximize available bandwidth.

VLAN1 minimization allows VLAN1 to be disabled on any individual VLAN trunk.

Smart Multicast, with Cisco FlexStack-Plus technology, allows the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series to offer greater efficiency and support for more multicast data streams such as video by putting each data packet onto the backplane only once.

Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) Snooping for IPv4 and IPv6 MLD v1 and v2 Snooping provide fast client joins and leaves of multicast streams and limit bandwidth-intensive video traffic to only the requestors.

Multicast VLAN Registration (MVR) continuously sends multicast streams in a multicast VLAN while isolating the streams from subscriber VLANs for bandwidth and security reasons.

Per-port broadcast, multicast, and unicast storm control prevents faulty end stations from degrading overall systems performance.

Voice VLAN simplifies telephony installations by keeping voice traffic on a separate VLAN for easier administration and troubleshooting.

Cisco VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) supports dynamic VLANs and dynamic trunk configuration across all switches.

Remote Switch Port Analyzer (RSPAN) allows administrators to remotely monitor ports in a Layer 2 switch network from any other switch in the same network.

For enhanced traffic management, monitoring, and analysis, the Embedded Remote Monitoring (RMON) software agent supports four RMON groups (history, statistics, alarms, and events).

Layer 2 trace route eases troubleshooting by identifying the physical path that a packet takes from source to destination.

Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) reduces the cost of administering software upgrades by downloading from a centralized location.

Network Timing Protocol (NTP) provides an accurate and consistent timestamp to all intranet switches.
