Intelligent PoE+

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

  • Comprehensive 802.1Xfeatures to control access to the network, including flexible authentication, 802.1X monitor mode, and RADIUS change of authorization.
  • 802.1x support with Network Edge Access Topology (NEAT) extends identity authentication to areas outside the wiring closet (such as conference rooms).
  • IEEE 802.1x User Distribution enables you to load-balance users with the same group name across multiple different VLANs.
  • Disable per-VLAN MAC learning manages the available MAC address table space by controlling which interface or VLANs learn MAC addresses.
  • Multidomain authenticationto allow an IP phone and a PC to authenticate on the same switch port while being placed on appropriate voice and data VLANs.
  • AAA command authorizationin plug-and-play (PnP) to enable seemless PnP provisioning.
  • Access control lists (ACLS)for IPv6 and IPv4 security and Quality-of-Service (QoS) ACL elements (ACEs).
  • Port-based ACLsfor Layer 2 interfaces to allow security policies to be applied on individual switch ports.
  • SSH, Kerberos, and SNMPv3to 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 authenticationto facilitate centralized control of the switch and restrict unauthorized users from altering the configuration.
  • MAC address notificationto notify administrators about users added to or removed from the network.
  • MAC authentication bypass and Webauth with downloadable ACLs allows per-user ACLs to be downloaded from the Cisco Access Control Server (ACS) as policy enforcement after authentication using MAB or Web authentication in addition to IEEE 802.1X.
  • Web Authentication redirection enables networks to redirect guest users to the URL that they had originally requested.
  • 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.
  • IP Source Guard restricts IP traffic on nonrouted, Layer 2 interfaces by filtering traffic based on the DHCP snooping binding database or manually configuring IP source bindings.
  • SSHv2 allows use of digital certificates for authentication between user and server.
  • 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) filteringto provide multicast authentication by filtering out nonsubscribers and to limit the number of concurrent multicast streams available per port.
  • Dynamic VLAN assignmentthrough 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 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.
  • Link State Tracking binds the link state of multiple interfaces. The server NIC adapters form a group to provide redundancy in the network. When the link is lost on the primary interface, network connectivity is transparently changed to the secondary interface.

Enhanced QoS

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L 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 eight egress queuesand two thresholds per port, supporting egress bandwidth control, shaping, and priority queuing so that high-priority packets are serviced ahead of other traffic.
  • Ingress policingallows the analysis of IP service levels for IP applications and services using active traffic monitoring - generating traffic in a continuous, reliable, and predictable manner—for measuring network performance. The number of ingress policers available per port is 64.
  • QoS through Differentiated Services Code Point(DSCP) mapping and filtering.
  • QoS through Traffic Classification
  • Trust Boundary to configure device-based trust.
  • Auto-QoS simplifies the deployment of QoS features.
  • Shaped Round Robin(SRR) scheduling and Weighted Tail Drop (WTD) congestion avoidance.
  • 802.1p Class of Service(CoS) classification, with marking and reclassification.

Warranty

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L 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 and 2960-L Smart Managed 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 (Cisco DNA Essential). 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.
