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.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
