Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches Feature and Benefit

Cisco 2960-L Series Switches are smartly managed, fixed Gigabit Ethernet switches that provide enterprise-class access switching for branch offices, out-of-wiring closet applications, and critical Internet of Things deployments. as well as small and medium-sized companies. They run on Cisco IOS Software and support simple device management and network management through the command-line interface (CLI), as well as an integrated web interface.

The Catalyst 2960-L Smart Managed Switches are secure and reliable enterprise-grade switches designed for small office deployments. These switches can be configured and managed through a built-in web interface that allows customers a fast and reliable way to get a small network of branch offices or offices up and running in minutes. These switches even have limited CLI support for troubleshooting and monitoring.

The Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series and 2960 Series Smart Managed Switches are fully managed switches that offer advanced Layer 2 and Basic Layer 3 features, as well as Power over Ethernet Plus. These switches provide enhanced network security, network reliability, and operational efficiency.

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Switches Feature:

  • 8, 16, 24, or 48 Gigabit Ethernet data ports or PoE + with line speed forwarding
  • 2 or 4 fixed 1 Gigabit Ethernet small form-factor pluggable uplinks or 4 fixed 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP uplinks
  • Perpetual PoE + support with an influence budget of up to 370W
  • An enhanced version of Cisco IOS LAN Lite software
  • CLI and/or intuitive web user interface management options
  • Reliability with an increased mean time between failures (MTBF) and an enhanced limited lifetime warranty (E-LLW)

Network administration

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches offer a superior CLI for detailed configuration and management. The switches are also compatible with the full range of Cisco network management solutions.

  • Cisco DNA Center on Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches provides a simple web user interface to enterprise network customers for zero-day plug and play, switch discovery and management, topology visualization, and network image management. software.
  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure offers comprehensive network lifecycle management, including an extensive library of easy-to-use features to automate the initial and daily management of your Cisco network. Cisco Prime technology integrates operational expertise and hardware and software platform expertise into a strong set of workflow-driven configuration, monitoring, troubleshooting, reporting, and administrative tools.
  • Cisco Network Plug and Play support the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) and Cisco DNA Center on Cisco Catalyst 2960-L series switches. This provides a simple, secure, unified, and integrated offering for enterprise network customers to facilitate the deployment of new devices in branch offices or campuses or to provide upgrades to an existing network with a near zero-touch deployment experience.

Network security

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches provide a variety of security features to limit network access and mitigate threats.

Improved quality of service

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches offer intelligent traffic management that keeps everything flowing smoothly. Flexible dialing, classification, and scheduling mechanisms deliver superior performance for data, voice, and video traffic – all at wire speed.

Smart Power over Ethernet Plus

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches supports both IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) and IEEE 802.3at PoE + to supply a lower total cost of ownership for deployments. PoE eliminates the need to supply wall power to PoE-enabled devices and eliminates the cost of adding wiring and electrical circuits that would otherwise be required in WLAN and IP phone deployments.


Cisco Catalyst 2960-L switches accompany an Enhanced Limited Lifetime Warranty (E-LLW). The E-LLW offers equivalent terms because of the standard Cisco Limited Lifetime Warranty, but adds next business day delivery of replacement hardware, when available, and 90-day Technical Assistance Center support.
