48 Port Full PoE vs 48 Port PoE

Unanswered Question
Aug 11th, 2010

Guys I am trying to determine what the difference between "full poe" and "poe"

I am replacing a few WS-C3560G-48PS-S switches at my clients and need to make sure I am providing them with the same PoE functionality that they currently have with the WS-C3560G-48PS-S.  I am trying to decide from the sku's below.  I also would like to use stackpower.  Any help would be great!!

2960S/X/XR, 3560X/C/CX, 3750X, 3560 & 3850 support PoE+ (up to 30.0w per port).  Some 3850 support uPoE.

Like any Cisco Catalyst 48-port standard PoE switch, it will only support up to 24 ports at 15.4w (on a first-come-first-serve-until-full) but can support 48-ports at 7.7w (some can).

A "full" 48-port PoE means that the switch can support 15.4w to all 48 ports.

Does this help?  Please don't forget to rate useful posts.  Thanks.

Full marks Leo - I referred a colleague to this 5 year old answer just today. :)
