About WS-C2960X-48TS-L

Product Overview

The switch has a LAN based Cisco IOS with 48 switch ports with four uplink SFP interfaces. The switch comes with a fixed configuration module. Cisco offers features such as FlexStack and advanced Layer 3 forwarding functionalities. End of Sale date is not announced.

Technical Specifications

Flash memory of the WS-C2960X-48TS-L is 128 MB. Memory type is DRAM. The switch has a built in dual core processor of 600 MHz. The switch has a mean time between failures of 442690 hours. The internal memory composites to 512MB. The noise level is 48 decibels. The console port is RJ-45 Ethernet port. 2 USB 2.0 ports are available. The LAN base IOS firmware is installed on the switch. For The SFP compatibility between different modules can be checked on with the online datasheet updated by the switch vendor (Cisco).

Data Forwarding

Layer 3 forwarding bandwidth is 108 Gigabits per second. Bandwidth available for 216 gigabits per second. MTU (maximum transmission unit) for a layer 3 packet is 9198 bytes. The size of a jumbo Ethernet frame is 9216 bytes. The MAC address table can have up to 1600 entries. VLANs entries can be up to 1023. The queue size is 8 per egress port. The TCAM table in the switch can be modified by using the SDM (Switching Database Management) templates.


Up to 8 WS-C2960X-48TS-L switches can be stacked using a feature known as FlexStack plus. This feature enables all the member switches of the stack to act as one logical switch. Stacked switches can be particularly useful in a large campus with multiple end users where multiple access layer switches may be needed. FlexStack reduces the time needed to configure and manage the switches, by logically grouping them a one unit. The switches are also hot-swappable, which ensures that even when one of the switches in the group can be added or removed while the rest of the switches continue to function.

The configuration guide published by Cisco for the 2960 series switch is comprehensive instructional manual for WS-C2960X-48TS-L.


The redundancy of the switch can be increased configuring Ether channel across links in the stack and running different versions of STP (Spanning Tree Protocols). The redundant power supply (RPS) can be used on the switch to maintain the device uptime.

Layer 3

The routing protocols for IPv4 such as RIP, OSPF can be configured on the switch. PIM (Multicast traffic) is also supported. Packet forwarding is at a rate of 107.1 megabits per second for a 64 byte layer 3 packet. IP based policy can be configured on the switch to control the data flow in the LAN.

Price and Warranty

The warranty for the used or re-manufactured switch is 1 year for most of the products. The overall price can be as low as 50% from the price announced by Cisco.
