Hi Lisa

From the 3560E Q&A (for 3560G read 3560)

=============================================

Q. What are the notable differences/features between the Cisco Catalyst 3560-E and the Cisco Catalyst 3560?

A. The differences are as follows:

? Cisco Catalyst 3560-E provides a true line-rate (nonblocking) Gigabit Ethernet to the desktop solution with two line-rate 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.

? The Cisco Catalyst 3560-E has a backplane switching ASIC, which also makes forwarding decisions, to help the switch perform wire-rate local switching.

? The Cisco Catalyst 3560-E supports dynamic a pluggable module that converts a 10 Gigabit Ethernet slot into a slot that can fit 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports. This allows for easy migration for customers moving from Gigabit Ethernet uplinks to 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.

? The Cisco Catalyst 3560-E supports hot-swappable power supplies.

? The Cisco Catalyst 3560-E supports jumbo frame routing and increases the frame size to 9216 bytes.

? The Cisco Catalyst 3560-E supports uncompressed IPv6 address tables. This allows the software to program the full IPv6 address in the hardware. In addition, equal cost routing for IPv6 uses the uncompressed IPv6 address.

? The Cisco Catalyst 3560-E supports destination stripping of unicast packets.

One more difference is that the 3560-48 port switch can support only 360W of POE power which means it can give power to all the 48 ports only if the PoE device is class 2 i.e which takes only 7.5W

On the other hand the 3560E supports 802.af power on all the 48 ports simulataneously (15.4 watts/port)

This is true for even the 3750 series

HTH, rate if it does
