About WS-C2960XR-24PD-I

Product Overview

The Cisco Catalyst WS-C2960XR-24PD-I is a 24 Gigabit Ethernet port. It features a line rate forwarding performance and PoE+ power supply point. The WS-C2960XR-24PD-I switch is also fully managed to provide both layer 2 and layer 3 features. Thus, offering operational simplicity and efficiency in the system.


Power Supply

The Cisco WS-C2960XR-24PD-I features a single power supply point with a built in fans for cooling. When paired with the fans cooling system, the system’s energy efficiency gets an added coat of lustre in design.


Power Capacity

The Cisco WS-C2960XR-24PD-I switch has a maximum number of PoE+ ports of 12 ports up to 30 Watts and maximum number of PoE ports of 24 ports up to 15.4 Watts. There is also a PoE power supply of 370 W from a single power point.



The Cisco WS-C2960XR-24PD-I switch has a distinctive configuration set up. It consists of 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports that make utility of 2 SFP+ uplink interfaces. The switch has a filed replaceable modular power supply that is built-in to house a secondary power supply. There is an integrated SFP module in the switch that needs periodic update download.



The stacking system employed in the Cisco WS-C2960XR-24PD-I switch is well structured in a distinctive fashion. The stacking employs both Flexstack-Plus and Flexstack-Extended modules with stacking limits of 8. The distinction come in that the Flexstack Plus has a stacking bandwidth of 80Gbs whilst the Flexstack-Extended module has stacking bandwidth of 40 Gbps.



Technical Specifications

The Cisco WS-C2960XR-24PD-I switch has interesting technical specifications on display that are classed according to performance. From a mechanical vantage, the switch can weigh about 13.6 pounds or 6.2 kilograms. The hardware specifications are 512 MB for DRAM128 MB Flash memory, a 600 MHz dual core CPU, A 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and USB (Type A) flash storage.


Tech Support and Services

The Cisco SmartNet Service is available to the WS-C2960XR-24PD-I switch. In order to get it, you need to acquire it as a separate item of purchase before it reaches eol.
