Product overview

The WS-C2960CPD-8PT-L is a switch in the Cisco catalyst 2960-C series of switches. It features 8 x 10/100 Ethernet ports and 2 x 1 GB (PoE and input) uplinks. It is a small form factor and offers a fan less and therefore noiseless operation.

Technical specification

The WS-C2960CPD-8PT-Loffers up to 10 Gbps forwarding bandwidth with 4.2 mpps forwarding rate at 64 byte packet. 64 MB is dedicated to flash memory while 128 MB as memory DRAM. The Cisco Catalyst WS-C2960CPD-8PT-Lweighs 2.4 pounds (1.08 kg). Its dimensions (H x W x D) are as follows: 1.75 in x10.6 in x6.8 in (4.44 cm x26.9 cm x17.2cm). It is configured to support a maximum of 255 VLANS and up to 4000 VLAN IDs. The jumbo frame size is about 9018 bytes with a maximum transmission unit (MTU) of up to 9000 bytes. This catalyst runs on the LAN Base version of the Cisco IOS software which cannot be upgraded. It can deliver advanced Layer 2 switching with Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4 services (including wireless LAN, video and voice services).

Power information

The Cisco Catalyst WS-C2960CPD-8PT-L does not require a power supply. Customers can provide power to the WS-C2960CPD-8PT-L by using the internal power supply. The internal power supply makes provisions for input voltages between 100 and 240 V AC. The WS-C2960CPD-8PT-L has an option for an external power adapter if preferred. The supplied AC power cord (pwr-adpt) can be used to connect the AC power connector to an AC power outlet. The WS-C2960CPD-8PT-L has an overall power rating of 0.04 kVA requiring an input voltage ranging between 37 to 57 V DC and an input current between 0.01 to 0.6 A. For switch power consumption, single uplink consumes 12 watts of power while dual uplink consumes 15 watts of power. 43 watts is consumed as PoE at 100 % throughput power consumption. The Mean Time between Failure (MTBF) is rated 346,590 hours.
