++ The Cisco Catalyst  3560 v2 Series are next-generation, energy-efficient, Layer 3 Fast  Ethernet switches. These new switches support Cisco EnergyWise technology,  which helps companies manage power consumption of the network  infrastructure and network-attached devices, thereby reducing their  energy costs and their carbon footprint.

++ The new switches consume less power than  their predecessors and are ideal access layer switches for enterprise,  retail, and branch-office environments. They help you maximize  productivity and provide investment protection by enabling a unified  network for data, voice, and video.

The best way to compare a product is to refer the datasheets of those products.








• 48 Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports and 4 SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet ports

• 1RU fixed-configuration, multilayer switch

• Enterprise-class intelligent services delivered to the network edge

• IP Base software feature set (IPB)


The latest one is the 3560V2 switches.

Hope this helps

The main difference between the plain and "V2" is the power consumption.  V2 uses less power than the older model.

Currently, I'd recommend using the V2 over the plain one.

One notable difference, V2 series provide 10/100 copper ports, the 3560G series provides 10/100/1000 copper ports.
