The Cisco Catalyst WS-C3560CX-12PD-S Compact Switch helps optimize network deployments. These Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and Multigigabit Ethernet (mGig) managed switches are ideal for high-speed data connectivity, Wi-Fi backhaul, and Power over Ethernet (PoE+) connectivity in places where space is at a premium. With a single copper or fibre cable from the wiring closet, Cisco Catalyst compact switches enable IP connectivity for devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, surveillance cameras, PCs, and video endpoints. With their quiet, fanless design and compact footprint, these switches offer flexible mounting options and open up a variety of network design and connectivity options. Use them in offices, classrooms, hotels, retail stores, and other enterprise and branch locations. The setup allows for shorter cable runs from the compact switches, allowing for flexibility in space redesign and growth as new devices join the network - this eliminating the need for expensive and inflexible cabling infrastructure.
12 x 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet
2 x 1G Copper Plus 2 x 10G SFP
12 Ports of PoE+
240 Watts of available PoE Power
Fan-less design and silent operation
Flexible mounting options
Internal power supply
More powerful than the 2960-CX, the 3560-CX PoE switch offers:
Layer 3 switching
Cisco multigigabit technology so you can use existing cat 5e/6 cabling and save money
Small form factor; fanless design; silent operation
The switch can be used in open workspaces and other areas that cannot tolerate equipment noise and where multiple cable runs could be difficult, expensive, and intrusive.
Flexible mounting options
The switch can be mounted on the wall, under a desk, rack, DIN rail, or practically anywhere they are needed.
Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX compact switches ship with the IP Base version of Cisco IOS® Software. The 3560-CX switches can be upgraded to use the IP Services version of IOS Software with a right-to-use (RTU) License. The IP Base and IP Services feature set on Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX switches provides baseline enterprise services in addition to all LAN Base features. They support Layer 3 networking features, including support for routed access, Cisco TrustSec, media access control security (MACsec), and other advanced network services. The IP Services feature set provides full Layer 3 routing capabilities with Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Enhanced Internal Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Policy-Based Routing (PBR), Multicast Routing, and Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) Lite.
It provides uninterrupted power to a powered-down device even when the switch is booting. This eliminates the need for a backup power source.
Advanced, integrated security features provide threat defense capabilities for mitigating man-in-the-middle attacks and protecting your critical network infrastructure.
Switch hibernate mode
This technology puts the switch in an ultra-low power mode during periods of non-operation such as nights and weekends.
10-Gigabit SFP+ uplinks
Accommodates business growth and increased traffic, such as aggregate upstream gigabit traffic loads from 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points.
Cisco Multigigabit Ethernet
With the enormous growth of 802.11ac and new wireless applications, wireless devices are driving the demand for more network bandwidth. This creates a need for a technology that supports speeds higher than 1 Gbps on all cabling infrastructure. Cisco Multigigabit Ethernet technology is a unique Cisco innovation that allows you to achieve bandwidth between speeds of 100Mbps and 10 Gbps over traditional Cat 5e cabling or above. In addition, the Multigigabit ports on the Cisco Catalyst Compact switch support PoE+, which is increasingly important for next-generation workspaces and Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystems. The Multigigabit Ethernet ports can also be used as uplinks to connect to traditional access switches such as the Cisco Catalyst 3850/4500 switches.
Cisco Multigigabit technology offers significant benefits for a diverse range of speeds, cable types, and PoE power. The benefits can be grouped into three different areas:
Multiple speeds: Cisco Multigigabit technology supports autonegotiation of multiple speeds on switch ports. The supported speeds are 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, and 5 Gbps on Cat 5e cable and up to 10 Gbps over Cat 6a cabling.
Cable type: The technology supports a wide range of cable types, including Cat 5e, Cat 6, and Cat 6a or above.
PoE power: The technology supports PoE and PoE+ for all the supported speeds and cable types.
