The WS-C2960-48TT-S is one of the Catalyst 2960 series fixed-configuration switches offering 10/100 Fast Ethernet and 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity with LAN services for small branch office networks.

The 48TT-S model provides:

  • Forty-eight Ethernet 10/100 Base-T ports for desktop connectivity
  • Two 10/100/1000 Ethernet uplink ports

The LAN Lite feature set provides entry-level security, quality of service (QoS), and availability capabilities while lowering the total cost of network ownership.

A similar switch, the WS-C2960-48TT-L, provides more advanced features but at a higher cost of ownership. See the Cisco Web site for a comparison in PDF form.

The Cisco Identity-Based Networking Services (IBNS) solution provides authentication, access control, and security policy administration to secure network connectivity and resources.

There are two options for switch management: the Windows-based Cisco Network Assistant, available at no cost from the Cisco website, and SNMP network-management platforms such as the CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution.

Here are some notable features of this product:

  • Enhancements to the standard Spanning Tree Protocol, such as Per-VLAN Spanning Tree Plus (PVST+), UplinkFast, and PortFast, help to maximize network uptime.
  • QoS features help ensure that network traffic is classified and prioritized, and that congestion is avoided in the best possible manner.
  • Express Setup simplifies initial configuration of a switch through a web browser.
  • The default configuration stored in flash memory helps ensure that the switch can be quickly connected to the network and can pass traffic with minimal user intervention.
  • Configuration Rollback provides the capability to replace the current running configuration with any saved Cisco IOS Software configuration file.
