The Catalyst 3650 switches are the next generation of enterprise class stackable access layer switches that provide full convergence between wired and wireless networks on a single platform. This convergence is built on the resilience of new and improved 160-Gbps StackWise-160 and Cisco StackPower. Wired and wireless security and application visibility and control are natively built into the switch.
The Catalyst 3650 switches also support full IEEE 802.3 at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), modular and field replaceable network modules, redundant fans, and power supplies. The Catalyst 3650 switches enhance productivity by enabling applications such as IP telephony, wireless, and video for a true borderless network experience.
The Cisco IOS XE software represents the continuing evolution of the preeminent Cisco IOS operating system. The Cisco IOS XE architecture and well-defined set of APIs extend the Cisco IOS software to improve portability across platforms and extensibility outside the Cisco IOS environment. The Cisco IOS XE software retains the same look and feel of the Cisco IOS software, while providing enhanced future-proofing and improved functionality.
The cpp [ all | disable | system-default | traffic-type ] global configuration command for configuring Control Plane Policing (CPP) has been updated to include keywords for modifying CPP policer settings on CPU queues and for controlling the policer rate based on traffic types.
HSRP version 2 support for IPv4 and IPv6—Improves management and troubleshooting of IP multicast addresses. Also addresses the restrictions in HSRP version 1, such as:
– Group numbers are restricted to the range from 0 to 255. HSRP version 2 expands the group number range from 0 to 4095.
– Multicast address 126.96.36.199 is used to send HSRP hello messages. This address can conflict with Cisco Group Management Protocol (CGMP) leave processing. HSRP version 2 uses the new IP multicast address 188.8.131.52 to send hello packets instead of the multicast address of 184.108.40.206.
Note HSRP is supported in the IP Base and IP Services feature sets. It is not supported in the LAN Base feature set.

Access Point Version
The package files for the Cisco IOS XE software are stored on the system board flash device (flash:).
You can use the show version privileged EXEC command to see the software version that is running on your switch.
NoteAlthough the show version output always shows the software image running on the switch, the model name shown at the end of this display is the factory configuration and does not change if you upgrade the software license.
You can also use the dir filesystem : privileged EXEC command to see the directory names of other software images that you might have stored in flash memory.
5.Cisco WLC Release 7.6 is not compatible with Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0.
6.Prime Infrastructure 2.0 enables you to manage Cisco WLC 220.127.116.11 with the features of Cisco WLC 18.104.22.168 and earlier releases. Prime Infrastructure 2.0 does not support any features of Cisco WLC 22.214.171.124 including the new AP platforms.
7.Prime Infrastructure 2.1.1 allows you to manage Cisco WLC Releases 126.96.36.199 and 7.6.x with the features of Cisco WLC 188.8.131.52 and earlier releases. Prime Infrastructure 2.1.1 does not support any features that are introduced in Cisco WLC Releases 184.108.40.206 and 7.6.x except the new access point platforms and the new mobility feature.

Upgrading the Switch Software
For information about how to upgrade the switch software, see the System Management Configuration Guide, Cisco IOS XE Release 3SE (Catalyst 3650 Switches) at the following URL:
The Catalyst 3650 switch supports three different feature sets:
LAN Base feature set—Provides basic Layer 2+ features, including access control lists (ACLs) and quality of service (QoS) and up to 4094 VLANs.
IP Base feature set—Provides Layer 2+ and basic Layer 3 features (enterprise-class intelligent services). These features include access control lists (ACLs), quality of service (QoS), ACLs, QoS, static routing, EIGRP stub routing, IP multicast routing, Routing Information Protocol (RIP), basic IPv6 management, the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) Protocol, and support for wireless controller functionality.
IP Services feature set—Provides a richer set of enterprise-class intelligent services and full IPv6 support. It includes all IP Base features plus full Layer 3 routing (IP unicast routing, IP multicast routing, and fallback bridging). The IP Services feature set includes protocols such as the Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) Protocol, and support for wireless controller functionality.
Note A separate access point count license is required to use the switch as a wireless controller.
For more information about the features, see the product data sheet at this URL:
The Bug Search Tool (BST), which is the online successor to Bug Toolkit, is designed to improve the effectiveness in network risk management and device troubleshooting. The BST allows partners and customers to search for software bugs based on product, release, and keyword, and aggregates key data such as bug details, product, and version. The tool has a provision to filter bugs based on credentials to provide external and internal bug views for the search input.
