Layer 3 switching on Cisco WS-C2960X-48FPD-L

hi All,

 

I've 2 Q's I'd like some help with

  1. We have bought some Cisco WS-C2960X-48FPD-L switches – do they do Layer 3 routing out of the box?
  2. Assuming the answer to the above is no, can we do a software update to the above or have we bought the wrong kit?

 

Really appreciate any help with this.

Cheers,

Huw

I think that X series of switches have "IP lite" version (something like 2960-XR) which have most of L3 functionality.

Upgrade from one IOS (LAN lite to LAN Base or IP lite) is not supported - you have to buy in start adequate version...

You can't upgrade - and you need XR 2960 switch...

Hello, WS-C2960X-48FPD-L , L

Hello,

  •  WS-C2960X-48FPD-L , L is for LANBASE Software Image so it should support basic static routing.
  • WS-C2960X-48FPD-LL , LL is for LANLITE Software Image that do not support basic routing, and I am not sure, but it cannont be upgraded to LANBASE image [it was the case for the first version of C2960 LANLITE].

Best regards,

XLG.
