The Cisco® Catalyst® 3560-C and 2960-C Series Switches are compact switches designed to deliver unified communications, wireless, IP video, and other applications to the retail, hospitality, education, and enterprise customer. These new compact switches are designed specifically to be placed outside the wiring closet, and they contain a number of innovative features that give customers flexibility in switch placement and end device support with Power over Ethernet (PoE) pass-through, as well as advanced security services and ease-of-management features.
Primary Features and Benefits
Flexible Placement Options with PoE Pass-Through
PoE pass-through gives users the ability to power PoE end devices, as well as the switch itself, by drawing Cisco Universal Power Over Ethernet™ (Cisco UPOE™)/PoE+ power from a wiring closet switch. This ability is ideal for wiring-constrained and space-constrained applications.
Ease of Management with Cisco Smart Install and Configuration
Cisco Smart Install and Configuration is a transparent automated technology to configure the Cisco IOS® Software image and switch configuration without user intervention. It provides a single point of management for a group of switches.
Intelligent Power Management Capabilities with Cisco EnergyWise
Cisco Catalyst 3560-C and 2960-C switches use hardware components created by Cisco, providing optimum power-saving, low-power operations for industry best-in-class power management and power consumption capabilities.
Enhanced Security Features with Cisco TrustSec Technology
Cisco TrustSec® technology secures access to the network and resources, whether wired, wireless, or VPN, making sure those endpoint devices are authorized and healthy. The Cisco Catalyst 3560-C compact switches also support MACsec.

Warranty Coverage and Technical Service Options
The Cisco Catalyst 2960-C and 3560-C Series Switches come with an enhanced limited lifetime hardware warranty (E-LLW) that includes 90 days of Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support and next-business-day hardware replacement.
Adding a technical services contract, such as Cisco SMARTnet® Service, to your device coverage provides access to the Cisco TAC beyond the 90-day period allowed by the E-LLW. It also can provide a variety of hardware replacement options to meet critical business needs, updates for licensed premium Cisco IOS Software, and registered access to the extensive Cisco.com knowledge base and support tools.
