Yes, you can use a 3rd party transceiver, however switch will generate warning, 3Anetwork recommend customers using original Cisco transceiver.

Q: What is FlexStack technology?

FlexStack technology is based on Cisco StackWise technology. FlexStack has the same operational features as the StackWise technology, allowing multiple physical switches to be managed as a single logical switch. Having multiple physical switches in a single FlexStack allows the network operator to increase network availability by using the redundancy built into FlexStack. Redundant features of FlexStack include EtherChannel uplinks and master switch failover protection.

Q: What is the maximum number of members in a single FlexStack?


Q: What are the available FlexStack cable lengths?

Three FlexStack cables lengths are supported: 0.5 meter;1.0 meter; 3.0 meter.

Q: Can I stack WS-C2960S-24TS-L using FlexStack switch with a Catalyst 3750, 3750-E, or 3750-X using StackWise?

No. FlexStack and StackWise are different technologies and these switches cannot be stacked together. Also, FlexStack cables have different connectors than the StackWise cables.

63% OFF

Although this Cisco switch WS-C2960S-24TS-L is not PoE switch, and cannot be downgraded from LAN Base to LAN Lite, the catalyst 2960S-24TS-L with 4 SFP uplink ports, support RPS and flexstack, great access switch for offices and the price is 63% off, that's the most reason we bought it.

Our company has purchased WS-C2960S-24TS-L, which is the classic switch of Cisco Catalyst 2960 Switches. As an entry-level enterprise, this switch satisfies our need but costs less. It’s a LAN Base switch, thus it has more functions than LAN Lite, like ACL, Auto QoS, and IPv6 Host. Also, WS-C2960S-24TS-L has highly secure business operations, and it works sustainably.

I've bought two. Arrived on time and well protected packaging. Installed right away and it has been working fine since installation (about 3 weeks). For the $$$, this is a fantastic value. I may even buy a third one to expand my network.

Worthy of the money.

I had meant to buy WS-C2960S-24TS-S, because it's much cheaper than WS-C2960S-24TS-L. And I thought it could be upgraded to LAN Base. But the technical man told me that the feature set is bound to the hardware model, so Cisco Catalyst 2960-S or 2960-SF Series LAN Lite switch can't be upgraded to LAN Base. Finally got this one. Worthy of the money.
