Cisco Catalyst 2960X-48LPS-L 48-Port Gigabit PoE+ Switch with 4x SFP ports


Cisco® Catalyst® 2960-X and 2960-XR Series Switches are fixed-configuration, stackable Gigabit Ethernet switches that provide enterprise-class access for campus and branch applications. They operate on Cisco IOS® Software and support simple device management as well as network management. The Cisco Catalyst 2960-X and 2960-XR Series provide easy device onboarding, configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting. These fully managed switches can provide advanced Layer 2 and Layer 3 features as well as optional Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) power. Designed for operational simplicity to lower total cost of ownership, they enable scalable, secure, and energy-efficient business operations with intelligent services. The switches deliver enhanced application visibility, network reliability, and network resiliency.


  • 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports with line-rate forwarding performance
  • 4 Gigabit Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) uplinks
  • Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) support with up to 370W of PoE budget
  • LAN Base Cisco IOS Software feature set
  • Reduced power consumption and advanced energy management features
  • USB and Ethernet management interfaces for simplified operations
  • FlexStack Plus for stacking of up to 8 switches with 80 Gbps of stack throughput (optional)
  • Application visibility and capacity planning with integrated NetFlow-Lite

Network Security

The Cisco Catalyst 2960-X series switches provide a range of security features to limit access to the network and mitigate threats, including MAC-based VLAN assignment, Cisco TrustSec, Cisco Threat Defense and Private VLANs, among others.

Redundancy and Resiliency

Cisco Catalyst 2960-X series switches offer a number of redundancy and resiliency features to prevent outages and help ensure that the network remains available, including, Cross-stack EtherChannel, Flex Links, Cisco HSRP and power redundancy.

Enhanced Quality of Service

The Cisco Catalyst 2960-X and 2960-XR Series Switches offer 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. Primary QoS features include:
  • Up to eight egress queues per port and strict priority queuing so that the highest-priority packets are serviced ahead of all other traffic.
  • Shaped Round Robin (SRR) scheduling and Weighted Tail Drop (WTD) congestion avoidance.
  • Flow-based rate limiting and up to 256 aggregate or individual policers per port.
  • 802.1p Class of Service (CoS) and Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) classification, with marking and reclassification on a per-packet basis by source and destination IP address, MAC address, or Layer 4 TCP/UDP port number.
  • Cross-stack QoS to allow QoS to be configured across a stack of 2960-X and 2960-XR Series switches.
  • Cisco Committed Information Rate (CIR) function, providing bandwidth in increments as low as 8 Kbps.
  • Rate limiting based on source and destination IP address, source and destination MAC address, Layer 4 TCP/UDP information, or any combination of these fields, using QoS ACLs (IP ACLs or MAC ACLs), class maps, and policy maps.


Switching Database Manager (SDM) templates for LAN Base and IP Lite licenses allow the administrator to automatically optimize the Ternary Content-Addressable Memory (TCAM) allocation to the desired features based on deployment-specific requirements, including MAC, routing, security, and QoS scalability numbers, depending on the type of template used in the switch.

Operational Efficiency

Cisco Catalyst SmartOperations is a comprehensive set of capabilities that simplify LAN planning, deployment, monitoring, and troubleshooting. Deploying SmartOperations tools reduces the time and effort required to operate the network and lowers Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Power Management

The Cisco Catalyst 2960-X and 2960-XR Series Switches offer a range of industry-leading features for effective energy efficiency and energy management. They are the greenest switches in the industry.

Switch Hibernation Mode (SHM) is an industry first and available on all 2960-X and 2960-XR Series switches. This feature puts the switch in ultra-low-power mode during periods of nonoperation such as nights or weekends. SHM on the 2960-X and 2960-XR Series switches can be scheduled using Cisco EnergyWise® compliant management software.

IEEE 802.3az EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) enables ports to dynamically sense idle periods between traffic bursts and quickly switch the interfaces into a low-power idle mode, reducing power consumption.

Cisco 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. Cisco EnergyWise technology is included on all Cisco Catalyst 2960-X and 2960-XR Series Switches.

Marketing InformationThe Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series provides a direct replacement for each Catalyst 2960-S Series Gigabit Ethernet model, at the same price. The Catalyst 2960-X provides better architecture, features, and performance than the 2960-S, doubling the feature set. Customers for the Catalyst 2960-SF Fast Ethernet switches should also consider moving to the 2960-X switches, which provide the features of the Catalyst 2960-SF and more, including PoE Plus (PoE+), improved IPv6 performance, and optional StackWise stacking. The 2960-X PoE models have a premium of approximately 20 to 25 percent over the 2960-SF Series.
