About WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I

Product Overview

The Cisco Catalyst WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I is a 48 Gigabit Ethernet port with a rack mountable enclosure. It has a forwarding bandwidth of 108 Gbps and switching bandwidth of 216 Gbps. The WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I switch has functional layer 2 and layer 3 features with a PoE power of 740W. The WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I switches are made to offer operational simplicity and enhance network reliability when deployed.


Power Supply

The Cisco WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I features a dual redundant power supply. The default power is the PWR-C2-1025WAC with a PoE of 740W. The power supply has an incorporated cooling system that is comprised of fans to regulate system efficiency during power consumption. The secondary power supply is available for purchase later as a spare or bought together with the WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I switch.


Power Capacity

The Cisco WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I switch has a PWR-C2-1025WAC power supply that is provided by default. The switch also has a max number of PoE+ ports of 24 ports up to 30 Watts and max number of PoE ports of 48 ports up to 15.4 Watts and an available PoE power of 740 Watts. There is also an included stack support for both FlexStack-Plus and FlexStack-Extended modules.



The Cisco WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I switch has 48 Gigabit Ethernet that 2 SFP+ uplink interfaces. The switch also has an IP Lite Cisco IOS Software Image and 740 W available PoE power.



The Cisco WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I switch features two stack modules, the Flexstack-Plus and Flexstack-Extended modules with stacking limits of 8. The two modules differ 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-48FPS-I switch can weigh about 14.7 pounds or 6.7 kilograms. The hardware specs are 512 MB for DRAM, 128 MB Flash memory, a 600 MHz dual core CPU, A 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, USB (Type B) Ethernet (RJ-45) console port and USB (Type A) flash storage.


Tech Support and Services

The Cisco SmartNet Service is available to the WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I switch. To obtain this service a separate purchase is required.


Extra Section

The WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I switch does not have a defined end of life/sale (eol/eos). You can learn more with an in-depth description of the WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I switch by taking a look at the datasheet (pdf). We offer up to 70% off the global cisco list price.
