Hi Umesh,

From the Q&A -

Q. What are the notable differences between the Cisco Catalyst 2960 LAN Base and LAN Lite switches?

A. Cisco Catalyst 2960 LAN Base switches have several advantages:

• Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in 8-, 24-, and 48-port configurations.

• RPS support and support for a wide range of SFP transceivers.

• Enhanced security through Layer 2-4 access control lists (ACLs), DHCP Snooping, and more extensive Network Admission Control capabilities such as web authentication and 802.1x enhancements.

• Additional QoS capabilities: The LAN Base Cisco IOS Software supports policing, class and policy maps, differentiated services code point (DSCP), AutoQoS, and configurable queue weights, buffers, and thresholds.

• Higher network-level availability with features such as FlexLinks and Link State Tracking.

• Increased number of VLANs (256) and other enhancements such as IPv6 Host, MLD Snooping, LLDP-MED, RSPAN, MVR, DHCP Option 82, and IP SLA (responder).
