WS-C2960S-48FPD-L STACKING

How many Switches can be stacked  with WS-C2960S-48FPD-L at a max..

As per my Knowledge it is 4 and as below..

Switch 1 to Switch 2

Switch 2 to Switch 3

Switch 3 to Switch 4

Switch 4 to Switch 1

If yes then, is it mandatory to do the "Switch 4 to Switch 1" stack. why am I asking this is because this stack requires a long cable and the cable which comes with the Switch is only 0.5M.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Shameem,

2960 allows to stuck up to 4 switches:

It is not neccessary to connect switch 1 to switch 4 stack ports. See how to connect 4 switches with 0.5 meter cables only:
