Hi Ebert,

NO, Cisco 2960 doesn't support POE,

if you are looking are for a POE then

* WS-CE500-24LC

* 20 10/100 ports, 4 10/100 PoE ports, and 2 10/100/1000Base-T or SFP uplinks


Cisco Catalyst 3560-8PC

8 Ethernet 10/100 ports with PoE and 1 dual purpose 10/100/1000 and small form-factor pluggable (SFP) port; compact form-factor with no fan.

hope this helps.

rate this post if satisfied.

As stated above the 2960 does not support POE. You can go with a 3560/3750 switch



You should also check the wattage the phones going to draw.

The 3750 48 port switch supports a power of 370W which means if the phones draw 15W per port, then you can power only 24 ports out of the 48.

HTH, rate if it does
