- 48 Fast Ethernet ports
- Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) and 1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet uplinks
- IEEE 802.3af-compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE)
- Cisco EnergyWise technology to manage energy consumed by connected devices
- Robust quality of service (QoS) that prioritizes voice and critical business applications
- Flexible security features that can limit access to the network and mitigate threats
- Tools that reduce total cost of ownership through simplified operations and automation
- Enterprise-class quality of service
The Cisco 2960-Plus series switch offers intelligent traffic management that keeps everything flowing smoothly. Flexible mechanisms for marking, classification, and scheduling deliver superior performance for data, voice, and video traffic, all at wire speed.
- Cisco EnergyWise
Cisco EnergyWise empowers IT teams to measure and manage the power consumed by devices connected to the network, providing measurable energy savings and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. EnergyWise policies can be used to control the power consumed by PoE-powered endpoints, desktop and data-center IT equipment, and a wide range of building infrastructure.
- Power over Ethernet
Cisco Catalyst 2960-Plus switch supports IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) to deliver lower total cost of ownership for deployments that incorporate Cisco IP phones, Cisco Aironet wireless access points, or other standards-compliant PoE end devices. PoE removes the need to supply wall power to PoE-enabled devices and eliminates the cost of adding electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments.
- Network management
The Cisco Catalyst 2960-Plus series switch offers a superior CLI for detailed configuration and administration. 2960-Plus switch is also supported in the full range of Cisco network management solutions.
