Created for organizations where space is tight, the compact WS-C2960CX-8PC-L switch is a powerful 8 port gigabit switch. Because it’s small, you can place it outside the wiring closet. It has a quiet, fan-less design so it’s silent. And it has flexible mounting options.
With a setup that allows for shorter cable runs from the switch, new devices can easily join the network. Shorter cables reduce the need for expensive and inflexible cabling.
Whether in a hospital, retail store, office, classroom, or branch location, this 8 port gigabit switch supports IP connections for devices with PoE+. You don’t need to install new electrical circuits to power your access points and other devices, such as:
