The main difference is WS-C2960-8TC-L is LAN Base Layer 2 switch, while WS-C2960-8TC-S is LAN Lite Entry Layer 2 switch.
Cisco Catalyst 2960 Compact Switches are small form-factor switches designed for deployments outside the wiring closet. They have a durable metal shell, no fan for silent operation, easy wall or under-the-desk mounting, a security lock to prevent theft, and an available cable guard to secure the Ethernet cables and switch. Now you can deliver intelligent services such as Network Admission Control for the office workspace, micro branch office, classroom, cruise ship, and other wiring-constrained environments.
The below list describes the Cisco Catalyst 2960 Compact Switch portfolio:
|Product Name||Part Number||Description|
|Cisco Catalyst 2960-8TC-S||WS-C2960-8TC-S||8 Ethernet 10/100 ports and 1 dual-purpose uplink (each dual-purpose uplink port has one 10/100/1000 Ethernet port and one Small Form-Factor Pluggable [SFP]-based Gigabit Ethernet port, one port active). 2960 LAN Lite IOS Software support|
|Cisco Catalyst 2960PD-8TT-L||WS-C2960PD-8TT-L||8 Ethernet 10/100 ports and 1 10/100/1000 PoE Input port (No power supply required) 2960 LAN Base IOS Software support|
|Cisco Catalyst 2960-8TC-L||WS-C2960-8TC-L||8 Ethernet 10/100 ports and 1 dual-purpose uplink (each dual-purpose uplink port has one 10/100/1000 Ethernet port and one Small Form-Factor Pluggable [SFP]-based Gigabit Ethernet port, one port active) 2960 LAN Base IOS Software support|
|Cisco Catalyst 2960G-8TC-L||WS-C2960G-8TC-L||7 Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports and 1 dual-purpose uplink (each dual-purpose uplink port has one 10/100/1000 Ethernet port and one SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet port, one port active) 2960 LAN Base IOS Software support|
A dual-purpose uplink is a combination of one 10/100/1000-TX copper port and one SFP-based Gigabit Ethernet port. One of these two ports can be used at a time. This added uplink flexibility allows cost-effective use of high-density, fiber-uplink-based stacks. Dual-purpose uplinks also offer a full-duplex, gigabit-speed trunk for a Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series Switch stack.
