2960-X L3?

Is the 2960-X a full L3 switch like intervlan routing, qos, etc, or does it have basic L3 functionality? I found the data sheet, but I can't find anything about intervlan routing. Would it be better to go to a 3750?

Thanks!

2960-X L3?

Hi John,

I found this list of documents and also Q&A.

There is mentioned

Table 1. Feature Sets Supported in 2960-X Series

Platform

IP Lite

(Layer 3)

LAN Base

(Layer 2)

LAN Lite

(Basic Layer 2)

2960-XR

Yes

No

No

2960-X

No

Yes

Yes

So it seems that 2960-X does not support L3 functionality.

Re: 2960-X L3?

Hi John,

The 2900-X series device are mainly layer-2 switches with very limited routing capacities, if any (see link below).

I would rather use a 3750 or 3850.  If you need basic routing, IP Base is good enough, if you need full OSPF, EIGRP, BGP, VRF, etc.. support you need IP Services license.

Reza/Jan,

Thanks for your response. The 2960-XR is the one that was proposed. I found that out after posting, but I did found that it seems the 2960-XR does support vlan routing. Do any of you have experience with this? I'm only going to have at the most 5 or 6 vlans on it, but would need qos, standard l2 security features, and standard routing.

Thanks!

John,

I personally have not used the X or XR series.  From your requirement, it appears that XR deoes what you need, but if I had the budget, I would go with 3560 or 3750.
