Intelligent PoE+

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches support both IEEE 802.3af PoE and IEEE 802.3at PoE+ (up to 30W per port) to deliver a lower total cost of ownership for deployments that incorporate Cisco IP phones, Cisco Aironet® wireless access points, or other standards-compliant PoE and PoE+ end devices. PoE removes the need to supply wall power to PoE-enabled devices and eliminates the cost of adding electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments.

The Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series PoE power allocation is dynamic, and power mapping scales up to a maximum of 370W of PoE+ power. Intelligent power management allows flexible power allocation across all ports. With Perpetual PoE, the PoE+ power is maintained during a switch reload. This is important for critical endpoints such as medical devices and for IoT endpoints such as PoE-powered lights, so that there is no disruption during a switch reboot.

Network Security

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches provide a range of security features to limit access to the network and mitigate threats, including:

   Comprehensive 802.1X features to control access to the network, including flexible authentication, 802.1X monitor mode, and RADIUS change of authorization.

   Multidomain authentication to allow an IP phone and a PC to authenticate on the same switch port while being placed on appropriate voice and data VLANs.

   Access control lists (ACLS) for IPv6 and IPv4 security and Quality-of-Service (QoS) ACL elements (ACEs).

   Port-based ACLs for Layer 2 interfaces to allow security policies to be applied on individual switch ports.

   SSH, Kerberos, and SNMPv3 to provide network security by encrypting administrator traffic during Telnet and SNMP sessions. SSH, Kerberos, and the cryptographic version of SNMPv3 require a special cryptographic software image because of U.S. export restrictions.

   SPAN, with bidirectional data support, to allow Cisco Intrusion Detection System (IDS) to take action when an intruder is detected.

   TACACS+ and RADIUS authentication to facilitate centralized control of the switch and restrict unauthorized users from altering the configuration.

   MAC address notification to notify administrators about users added to or removed from the network.

   Multilevel security on console access to prevent unauthorized users from altering the switch configuration.

   BPDU guard to shut down spanning-tree PortFast-enabled interfaces when BPDUs are received to avoid accidental topology loops.

   Spanning-Tree Root Guard (STRG) to prevent edge devices that are not in the network administrator’s control from becoming Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) root nodes.

   Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) filtering to provide multicast authentication by filtering out nonsubscribers and to limit the number of concurrent multicast streams available per port.

   Dynamic VLAN assignment through implementation of VLAN Membership Policy Server client capability to provide flexibility in assigning ports to VLANs. Dynamic VLAN facilitates the fast assignment of IP addresses.

Basic Layer 3 Features

RIP is a commonly used routing protocol in small to medium-sized TCP/IP networks. It is supported in both IPv4 and IPv6 network environments.

Static routing is used to segment the network into separate workgroups and communicate across VLANs without degrading application performance.

Redundancy and Resiliency

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches offer a number of redundancy and resiliency features to prevent outages and help ensure that the network remains available:

   IEEE 802.1s/w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) provide rapid spanning-tree convergence independent of spanning-tree timers and also offer the benefits of Layer 2 load balancing and distributed processing.

   Per-VLAN Rapid Spanning Tree (PVRST+) allows rapid spanning-tree reconvergence on a per-VLAN spanning-tree basis, without requiring the implementation of spanning-tree instances.

   Switch-port autorecovery (error disable) automatically attempts to reactivate a link that is disabled because of a network error.

Enhanced QoS

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches offer intelligent traffic management that keeps everything flowing smoothly. Flexible mechanisms for marking, classifying, and scheduling deliver superior performance for data, voice, and video traffic, all at wire speed. Primary QoS features include:

   Up to four egress queues and two thresholds per port, supporting egress bandwidth control, shaping, and priority queuing so that high-priority packets are serviced ahead of other traffic.

   Shaped Round Robin (SRR) scheduling and Weighted Tail Drop (WTD) congestion avoidance.

   802.1p Class of Service (CoS) classification, with marking and reclassification.

Energy Management

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches offer a range of industry-leading features for energy efficiency and management:

   IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) enables ports to dynamically sense idle periods between traffic bursts and quickly switch the interfaces into a low-power idle mode, reducing power consumption.

   Cisco EnergyWise® policies can be used to control the power consumed by PoE-powered endpoints, desktop and data center IT equipment, and a wide range of building infrastructure. Cisco EnergyWise technology is included on all Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches. For more information about Cisco EnergyWise technology, visit cisco.com/go/energywise.

   Cisco Catalyst SmartOperations is a comprehensive set of capabilities that simplify LAN planning, deployment, monitoring, and troubleshooting. Deploying SmartOperations tools reduces the time and effort required to operate the network and lowers TCO.

   Loop detection is a new method to detect network loops in the absence of STP.

   Cisco AutoConfig services determine the level of network access provided to an endpoint based on the type of the endpoint device. This feature also permits hard binding between the end device and the interface.

   Cisco Smart Install services enable minimal-touch deployment by providing automated Cisco IOS Software image installation and configuration when new switches are connected to the network. This enables network administrators to remotely manage Cisco IOS Software image installs and upgrades.

   Cisco Auto SmartPorts services enable automatic configuration of switch ports as devices connect to the switch with settings optimized for the device type, resulting in zero-touch port-policy provisioning.

   Cisco Smart Troubleshooting is an extensive array of diagnostic commands and system health checks in the switch, including Smart Call Home. The Cisco Generic Online Diagnostics (GOLD) and online diagnostics on switches in live networks help predict and detect failures more quickly.

Operational Simplicity

   Cisco AutoSecure provides a single-line CLI to enable baseline security features (port security, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol [DHCP] snooping, Dynamic Address Resolution Protocol [ARP] Inspection). This feature simplifies security configurations with a single touch.

   DHCP auto configuration of multiple switches through a boot server eases switch deployment.

   Auto negotiation on all ports automatically selects half- or full-duplex transmission mode to optimize bandwidth.

   Dynamic Trunking Protocol (DTP) facilitates dynamic trunk configuration across all switch ports.

   Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) automates the creation of Cisco Fast EtherChannel groups or Gigabit EtherChannel groups to link to another switch, router, or server.

   Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) allows the creation of Ethernet channeling with devices that conform to IEEE 802.3ad. This feature is similar to Cisco EtherChannel technology and PAgP.

   Automatic media-dependent interface crossover (MDIX) automatically adjusts transmit and receive pairs if an incorrect cable type (crossover or straight-through) is installed.

   Unidirectional Link Detection Protocol (UDLD) and Aggressive UDLD allow unidirectional links caused by incorrect fiber-optic wiring or port faults to be detected and disabled on fiber-optic interfaces.

   Local Proxy ARP works in conjunction with Private VLAN Edge to minimize broadcasts and maximize available bandwidth.

   VLAN1 minimization allows VLAN1 to be disabled on any individual VLAN trunk.

   IGMP snooping for IPv4 and IPv6 and Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) v1 and v2 snooping provide fast client joins and leaves of multicast streams and limit bandwidth-intensive video traffic to only the requesters.

   Per-port broadcast, multicast, and unicast storm control prevents faulty end stations from degrading overall system performance.

   Voice VLAN simplifies telephony installations by keeping voice traffic on a separate VLAN for easier administration and troubleshooting.

   Cisco VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) supports dynamic VLANs and dynamic trunk configuration across all switches.

   For enhanced traffic management, monitoring, and analysis, the embedded Remote Monitoring (RMON) software agent supports four RMON groups (history, statistics, alarms, and events).

   Layer 2 trace route eases troubleshooting by identifying the physical path that a packet takes from source to destination.

   Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) reduces the cost of administering software upgrades by downloading from a centralized location.

   Network Time Protocol (NTP) provides an accurate and consistent timestamp to all intranet switches.

Warranty

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches come with an Enhanced Limited Lifetime Warranty (E-LLW). The E-LLW provides the same terms as the Cisco standard limited lifetime warranty but adds next-business-day delivery of replacement hardware, where available, and 90 days of 8x5 Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support. Your formal warranty statement, including the warranty applicable to Cisco software, appears in the Cisco information packet that accompanies your Cisco product. We encourage you to review carefully the warranty statement shipped with your specific product before use.

Cisco reserves the right to refund the purchase price as its exclusive warranty remedy. For more information about warranty terms, visit https://www.cisco.com/go/warranty and see Table 3. Warranty terms.

Cisco enhanced limited lifetime hardware warranty

Device covered

Applies to all Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches.

Warranty duration

As long as the original end user continues to own or use the product.

End-of-life policy

In the event of discontinuance of product manufacture, Cisco warranty support is limited to 5 years from the announcement of discontinuance.

Hardware replacement

Cisco or its service center will use commercially reasonable efforts to ship a Cisco Catalyst 2960-L replacement part for next-business-day delivery, where available. Otherwise, a replacement will be shipped within 10 working days after the receipt of the RMA request. Actual delivery times might vary depending on customer location.

Effective date

Hardware warranty commences from the date of shipment to customer (and in case of resale by a Cisco reseller, not more than 90 days after original shipment by Cisco).

TAC support

Cisco will provide during customer's local business hours, 8 hours per day, 5 days per week basic configuration, diagnosis, and troubleshooting of device-level problems for up to 90 days from the date of shipment of the originally purchased Cisco Catalyst 2960-L product. This support does not include solution or network-level support beyond the specific device under consideration.

Cisco.com access

Warranty allows guest access only to Cisco.com.

Licensing

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches support term-based Cisco DNA Essentials licenses (DNA-E). Table 4 lists the features supported in Cisco DNA Essentials. Table 5 gives ordering information for Cisco DNA Essentials with the 2960-L Series.

Ordering and managing licenses with smart accounts: Creating smart accounts by using the Cisco Smart Software Manager (SSM) enables you to order devices and licensing packages and also to manage your software licenses from a centralized website. You can set up Cisco SSM to receive daily email alerts and to be notified of expiring add-on licenses that you want to renew. When the license term expires, you can either renew the add-on license to continue using it or deactivate the add-on license and then reload the switch to continue operating with the base license capabilities.
