    Cisco FlexStack Stacking

    Cisco FlexStack and IOS software provide true stacking, with all switches in a stack acting as a single switch unit. FlexStack provides a unified data plane, unified configuration, and single IP address for switch management. The advantages of true stacking include lower total cost of ownership through simplified management, and higher availability. FlexStack supports cross-stack features including EtherChannel, SPAN, and FlexLink.
    The FlexStack stack module is hot-swappable and can be added to any Cisco Catalyst 2960-SF switch with LAN Base software, even while the switch is operating. Switches connected to a stack will upgrade to the correct Cisco IOS ® Software version and transparently become a stack member. The FlexStack module also enables mixed stacking: 2960-SF series switches and 2960-S series switches can be combined in a single stack.

    Power over Ethernet Plus - PoE+

    Cisco Catalyst 2960-SF switches support both IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet and IEEE 802.3at PoE+, which provides up to 30W of power per port. The Cisco Catalyst 2960-SF Series Switches lower total cost of ownership for deployments that incorporate Cisco IP phones, Cisco Aironet ® wireless access points, or other standards-compliant PoE/PoE+ end devices. PoE removes the need to supply wall power to PoE-enabled devices and eliminates the cost of adding electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments. Table 3 shows the total PoE/PoE+ power available in each 2960-SF model.

    Cisco EnergyWise

    Cisco EnergyWise is an innovative architecture, added to fixed configuration switches, promoting companywide sustainability by reducing energy consumption across an entire corporate infrastructure and affecting more than 50 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions created by worldwide building infrastructure, a much greater effect than the 2 percent generated by the IT industry. Cisco EnergyWise enables companies to measure the power consumption of network infrastructure and network-attached devices and manage power consumption with specific policies, reducing power consumption to realize increased cost savings, potentially affecting any powered device.
    EnergyWise encompasses a highly intelligent network-based approach to communicate messages that measure and control energy between network devices and endpoints. The network discovers Cisco EnergyWise-manageable devices, monitors their power consumption, and takes action based on business rules to reduce power consumption. EnergyWise uses a unique domain-naming system to query and summarize information from large sets of devices, making it simpler than traditional network management capabilities. Cisco EnergyWise's management interfaces allow facilities and network management applications to communicate with endpoints and each other using the network as a unifying fabric. The management interface uses standard SNMP or TCP to integrate Cisco and third-party management systems.

    • IEEE 802.1s/w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) provide rapid spanning-tree convergence independent of spanning-tree timers and also offer the benefit of Layer 2 load balancing and distributed processing. Stacked units behave as a single spanning-tree node.

    • Per-VLAN Rapid Spanning Tree (PVRST+) allows rapid spanning-tree reconvergence on a per-VLAN spanning-tree basis, without requiring the implementation of spanning-tree instances.

    • Switch-port autorecovery (Errdisable) automatically attempts to reactivate a link that is disabled because of a network error.

    Enhanced Quality of Service

    The Cisco 2960-SF Series Switches offers intelligent services that keep everything flowing smoothly. Industry-leading mechanisms for marking, classification, and scheduling deliver superior performance for data, voice, and video traffic, all at wire speed.
    QoS features supported in the Cisco 2960-SF Series Switches include:

    • Cross-stack QoS allows QoS to be configured across the entire FlexStack stack.

    • 802.1p class of service (CoS) and differentiated services code point (DSCP) field classification are provided, using marking and reclassification on a per-packet basis by source and destination IP address, MAC address, or Layer 4 TCP/UDP port number.

    • Cisco control-plane and data-plane QoS ACLs on all ports help ensure proper marking on a per-packet basis.

    • Four egress queues per port help enable differentiated management of different traffic types across the stack.

    • Shaped Round Robin (SRR) scheduling helps ensure differential prioritization of packet flows by intelligently servicing the ingress queues and egress queues.

    • Weighted Tail Drop (WTD) provides congestion avoidance at the ingress and egress queues before a disruption occurs.

    • Strict priority queuing helps ensure that the highest-priority packets are serviced ahead of all other traffic.

    • Trusted Boundary provides the ability to trust the QoS priority settings if an IP phone is present and to disable the trust setting if the IP phone is removed, thereby preventing a malicious user.

    • Rate limiting is provided based on source and destination IP address, source and destination MAC address, Layer 4 TCP/UDP information, or any combination of these fields, using QoS ACLs (IP ACLs or MAC ACLs), class maps, and policy maps.

    • Up to 64 aggregate or individual policers are available per Fast Ethernet or GbE port.

    Location Awareness and Mobility

    In order to provide delivery of a best-in-class network experience to end users, it's critical for network access to be location aware. A wide variety of devices can appear on the network, both wired (switches, routers, IP phones, PCs, access points, controllers, video digital media players, and so on) and wireless (mobile devices, wireless tags, rogues, and so on). In many industries, locating assets is primarily a manual process and is time consuming and error prone. The inability to locate assets in real time and to help ensure their availability when and where they are needed limits reaction time and efficiency.
    Location services answer business-critical questions about both mobile assets and the users of those assets regardless of whether those assets are connecting using wired or wireless, and hence directly improve their organization's profitability. Network Location Services also improve security and accelerate client troubleshooting by locating an asset, user, or device on the network.

    • Network visibility and control provide centralized visibility into wired and wireless devices on the network and their location.

    • Location-assisted client troubleshooting enables tracking of wired or wireless clients for quick problem resolution.

    • Asset tracking and improved security provide centralized inventory of wired and wireless devices and asset management for improved business processes.

    • Location based policy allows greater control and visibility. With EnergyWise, power policies can be set up (to reduce the power or shut down the power from a port) based on the location.

    • Cisco Emergency Responder (CER) enhances emergency calling from Cisco Unified CallManager. It helps assure that Cisco Unified CallManager sends emergency calls to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for the caller's location.
