Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX and 2960-CX Switch Family.

Product Overview

The Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX and 2960-CX Series Compact Switches help 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 fiber 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 can come out of the data closet and be placed closer to the users. This means shorter cable runs and greater flexibility as you grow your network.

Table 1.             Compact Switch Features and Benefits Summary

Feature

Benefits

Hardware

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 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.

10-Gigabit SFP+ uplinks

Accommodates business growth and increased traffic, such as aggregate upstream gigabit traffic loads from 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points.

Increased PoE+ Scale

Provides up to 240W of PoE+ budget (twice the power per switch than previous series).

Perpetual PoE

Provides uninterrupted power to a powered-down device even when the switch is booting. This eliminates the need for a backup power source.

PoE pass-through

PoE pass-through gives the ability to power PoE end devices through drawing Cisco UPOE from the wiring closet. The Cisco Catalyst WS-C3560CX-8PT-S has eight downlink ports with two Cisco UPOE input ports that allow it to be powered by another switch. These switches do not need a power supply and receive power over the uplink from an upstream PoE or Cisco UPOE device, providing deployment flexibility and availability. These switches are ideal for wiring-constrained and space-constrained applications.

Management and Operations

Cisco Instant Access Mode

Available on Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX switches with 10 G SFP+ uplinks, this optional mode enables a single point of management and operation for campus networks. Multiple Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX compact switches with 10 G SFP+ uplinks can be connected to Cisco Catalyst 6500 or 6800 core switches, and the entire configuration can then work as a single extended switch with a common management domain.

In this mode, compact switches inherit all the features of the Cisco Catalyst 6500 or 6800. Advanced Cisco Catalyst 6500 and 6800 features like MPLS and EVN can be extended to the access layer, so the Cisco Catalyst Instant Access solution can be deployed on all or a subset of the campus network.

Cisco Network Plug ‘n Play (PnP)

Network Plug-n-Play (PnP) is a secure, scalable solution that accelerates network device deployments by automating the installation and configuration of Cisco IOS software. The Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX and 2960-CX switches are ‘Network-PnP Ready’ and can be used as part of the APIC-EM solution for automated switch deployments. This feature helps improve productivity, cut costs, reduce downtime, and enhance the user experience.

Warranty Information

Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX and 2960-CX Series Switches come with an enhanced limited lifetime hardware warranty that includes 90 days of Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support and next-business-day hardware replacement free of change (see Table 10 for details).

Table 10.          Enhanced Limited Lifetime Hardware Warranty

 

Cisco Enhanced Limited Lifetime Hardware Warranty

Device covered

Applies to Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX and 2960-CX Series compact switches.

Warranty duration

As long as the original customer owns the product.

EoL 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 replacement for next business day delivery, where available. Otherwise, a replacement will be shipped within 10 working days after 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 business hours, 8 hours per day, 5 days per week basic configuration, diagnosis, and troubleshooting of device-level problems for up to a 90-day period from the date of shipment of the originally purchased Cisco Catalyst 2960 and 3560 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.

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.

Adding a Cisco technical services contract to your device coverage provides access to the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) beyond the 90-day period allowed by the warranty. It also can provide a variety of hardware replacement options to meet critical business needs, as well as updates for licensed premium Cisco IOS Software, and registered access to the extensive Cisco.com knowledge base and support tools.
