How many usable ports in Cisco Catalyst 2960S-48TS-L ?

Hi All,

Does anyone know of how many usable ports of the Cisco Catalyst 2960S-48TS-L Switch ?

If I have used all the 48 RJ45 ports, can I also use the last 4 SFP ports at the same time ?

If I can use all the 48 ports and the last 4 SFP ports at the same time, does it mean the Cisco Catalyst 2960S-48TS-L Switch has a total of 52 ports ?

OR

Are the last 4 SFP ports are what we call the "Dual-Purpose" ports ?

Regards,

Alvin

Hi Alvin,

From what I can see in the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series Switches with LAN Base and LAN Lite Software product bulletin the Catalyst 2960S-48TS-L has 48 Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports and 4 x 1 GbE SFP uplink ports i.e., the SFP uplink ports can be used in addition to the 48 UTP ports that the switches have.

Also from looking at the 2960-S switch I have here (a WS-C2960S-24PS-L) if I run the show version command it tells me I have 28 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. I suspect you'll see 52 if you were to run the same command on your switch.

In addition to this when I run the show interface status command I can see 28 interfaces of which Gi1/0/1-24 are UTP and Gi1/0/25-28 are SFP based. I'm currently using Gi1/0/24 for a host connection and Gi1/0/25-28 are all connected to my upstream switches.

Regards
