Catalyst 2960-S Lan Base and Lan Lite

Hello,

I am trying to understand the new generation of 2960 switches: the 2960-S.

Currently I am using the C2960G-24TC-L which is fine.

The thing is that I am trying to understand the differences between the Lan Base and Lite of the 2960-S. The only thing I discovered is that the Lite doesn't support stacking. That's fine, I don't need it. BUT is it realy the only difference (e.g. between a C2960S-24TS-L and a C2960S-24TS-S)?

Thanks!

• Network management tool support by CiscoWorks, Cisco Network Assistant, and Catalyst Device Manager

• Baseline Network Admission Control and 802.1x MAC Auth Bypass and Protected Port

• Voice VLAN and voice-aware port security, BPDU Guard, and Root Guard

• Standard QoS with Class of Service (CoS) marking, Shaped Round Robin, Weighted Tail Drop, and Strict Priority scheduling

• Link aggregation using Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) and 802.3ad LACP

• Complete Spanning Tree Protocol support via 802.1s, 802.1w, and PVST+

• VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP), Cisco Discovery Protocol v2, and LLDP
