Cisco 3560-X Series Switches
The Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches are an enterprise-class lines of stackable and standalone switches, respectively. These switches provide high availability, scalability, security, energy efficiency, IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) configurations, optional network modules, redundant power supplies, and Media Access Control Security (MACsec) features. The Cisco Catalyst 3560-X enhance productivity by enabling applications such as IP telephony, wireless, and video for borderless network experience.
Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches primary features:
Cisco 3560-X Series Switches
SpecificationsCisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Software
In addition to IP Base and IP Services feature sets, the Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series comes with a new LAN Base feature set. The three feature sets available with all Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches are:
- LAN Base: enterprise access Layer 2 switching features
- IP Base: baseline enterprise access Layer 3 switching features
- IP Services: advanced Layer 3 switching (IPv4 and IPv6) features
The LAN Base feature set includes comprehensive Layer 2 features, with up-to 255 VLANs. The IP Base feature set provides baseline enterprise services in addition to all LAN Base features, with 1K VLANs. IP Base also includes the support for routed access, StackPower (available only on the Catalyst 3750-X), MACsec, and the new Cisco Service Module. The IP Services feature set provides full enterprise services that includes advanced Layer 3 features such as Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM), and IPv6 routing such as OSPFv3 and EIGRPv6. All software feature sets support advanced security, QoS, and management features.
Customers can transparently upgrade the software feature set in the Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches through Cisco IOS® Software activation. Software activation authorizes and enables the Cisco IOS Software feature sets. A special file contained in the switch, called a license file, is examined by Cisco IOS Software when the switch is powered on. Based on the license's type, Cisco IOS Software activates the appropriate feature set. License types can be changed, or upgraded, to activate a different feature set.Cisco StackWise Plus Technology
Cisco StackWise Plus technology is built on the highly successful industry leading StackWise technology, which is a premium stacking architecture optimized for GbE. StackWise technology was designed to respond to additions, deletions, and redeployment while maintaining constant performance. The stack behaves as a single switching unit that is managed by a master switch elected from one of the member switches. The master switch automatically creates and updates all the switching and optional routing tables. A working stack can accept new members or delete old ones without service interruption. StackWise creates a highly resilient single unified system of up to nine switches, providing simplified management using a single IP address, single telnet session, single command-line interface (CLI), auto-version checking, auto configuration, and more.Service Module
The new Cisco Service Module offers enhanced security and Flexible Netflow (FNF) features on the uplink ports of the Catalyst 3560-X. The service module is supported with IP Base or IP Services feature set. It can be used with SFP or SFP+ at 1G or 10G speeds. The new Cisco Service Module has custom dedicated hardware for FNF monitoring, separate from the dedicated hardware for MACSec. Therefore there is no impact on packet forwarding performance & latency. It offers flexibility with the user being able to define flows. The new Cisco Service Module enables the following services:
- Line rate (40G) Flexible NetFlow for Network Monitoring and Security Anomaly Detection - Supported version 9 - 32,000 simultaneous flows - 128 of simultaneous active monitors
- Line rate (40G) MACsec encryption
FNF is a networking monitoring technology. A NetFlow table can be used to collect flow statistics. The flow information can be used by customers for a variety of use cases like understanding:1. Applications running on the network, and identify undesired applications, P2P etc 2. Granular Local and aggregated Campus view (Top N applications, drill down etc). 3. Top talkers (ports, users, applications) for application usage, productivity and asset utilization etc. 4. Security Anomaly Detection by examining flows that do not traverse trust boundaries for inside the perimeter attacks 5. Impacts of network and application changes 6. Compliance conformation 7. Traffic patterns for capacity planning
Enabling FNF at the access switch ensures you get all flows. The access switch is the most logical place in the network for collecting statistics and monitoring all flows. With Netflow, you can obtain MAC-address and access port information associated with the flow, to get directly to the source of the flow. Most collectors are able to leverage the location based on MAC-address and interface port number provided by the access switch to the collector. Thus by enabling FNF at the access switch you are able to get the location information of the flow. The access switch has a variety of identity mechanism for user authentication and adding user awareness is the natural progression that can be developed. Access switches are an order of magnitude greater than distribution and core which makes them scale well for FNF and ensure there are no performance impacts of oversubscription at aggregation and core.10GB-T Module
The new Cisco 10G Base-T module is hot-swapable and can operate at either 10GE or GE speed (with manual configuration)
The Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches offer exceptional security with integrated hardware support for MACsec defined in IEEE 802.1AE. MACsec provides MAC layer encryption over wired networks using out-of-band methods for encryption keying. The MACsec Key Agreement (MKA) protocol provides the required session keys and manages the keys required for encryption when configured. MKA and MACsec are implemented following successful authentication using 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) framework. In Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches both the user/down-link ports (links between the switch and endpoint devices such as a PC or IP phone) and, using the service module, the network/up-link ports can be secured using MACsec. With the service module you can encrypt switch to switch links such as access to distribution, or encrypt dark fiber links within a building or between buildings.
Dual Redundant Modular Power Supplies
The Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches supports dual redundant power supplies. The switch ships with one power supply by default, and the second power supply can be purchased at the time of ordering the switch or at a later time. If only one power supply is installed, it should always be in the power supply bay 1.
Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+)/Universal Power Over Ethernet (UPOE)
In addition to PoE 802.3af, the Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches support PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at standard), which provides up to 30W of power per port and UPOE, which provides 60W of power per port (only on UPOE-capable models). The Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches can provide a lower total cost of ownership for deployments that incorporate Cisco IP phones, Cisco Aironet® wireless LAN (WLAN) access points, or any IEEE 802.3af-compliant end device. PoE removes the need for wall power to each PoE-enabled device and eliminates the cost for additional electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments. Cisco UPOE switches extend the IEEE 802.3 PoE+ standard to double the power per port to 60 watts. UPOE-enabled ports can be used to deliver power for all current PoE/PoE+ solutions in addition to UPOE devices, including VDI clients, IP turrets for financial trading, personal Cisco TelePresence® systems, and more. The maximum UPOE budget available on the Cisco Catalyst 3560-X switch is 1800W per switch. This requires the 1100W AC power supply in both the power supply slots. 1800W in POE budget makes sure that the 24-port models support full UPOE on all ports (24 x 60W/port = 1440W) and the 48-port models support up to 30 UPOE connections (30 x 60W/port = 1800W) per switch.
