About WS-C2960XR-48FPD-I

Product Overview

The WS-C2960XR-48LPD-I enables you to use optional dual field-replaceable power supplies along with the Cisco IP Lite IOS software, which is essential for Layer 3 and dynamic routing features. The switch is rack mountable and comes with a stacking module, cables and other accessories. The IP Lite image allows you to employ basic access layer 3 routing features including HSRP, VRRP and RIPV1 among others.

Switch Models and Configurations

The WS-C2960XR-48LPD-I has 2 SFP+ Uplink Interfaces and 48 Ethernet ports. It incorporates the IP Lite software image and includes the FlexStack-Plus and FlexStack-Etended capability. Together with a 370W PoE power, it has a 640WAC power supply.

Technical Specifications

The WS-C2960XR-48LPD-I has a forwarding bandwidth of 108Gbps and a switching bandwidth of 216 Gbps. There are a maximum of 1023 active VLANs and 4096 VLAN IDs available with this switch. Both the USB Type B and the Ethernet RJ-45 console ports are available with the WS-C2960XR-48LPD-I. It has a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Network management interface.

Mechanical Specifications

The weight of the WS-C2960XR-48LPD-I is 6.4kg or 14.0 lbs while the dimensions are 1.75 x 16.0 x 17.5 inches or 4.45 x 40.8 x 44.5 cm.


At 50 – 60 Hz, the switch operates between a range of 6A to 3A and 90 to 264 VAC. It has a power rating of 0.48 kVA. The WS-C2960XR-48LPD-I also has a weighted average power consumption of 54.8W which varies from 40.7W for no traffic to 55.9W for 100% traffic.

Power Management

Cisco has always been energy conscious and there is no surprise that in the 2960-XR switches, they have incorporated the greenest technology around. With the use of both Switch Hibernation Mode and Energy Efficient Ethernet system, the switch uses as less energy as possible during times of no operation. The EEE allows it to switch quickly between interfaces to quickly come at a low power idle mode when not in use.

Additional Information

All support from Cisco engineering for this product ends on May 1, 2018 whereas support for any potential security threats or vulnerabilities is carried on till May 1, 2019. The end of life (eol) announce for the WS-C2960XR-48LPD-I was made on 31st October 2016. We have up to 75% discount available on the price of these switches.
