The 2960-S LAN Base feature set comes with advanced Layer 2(L2) features and is typically targeted at large enterprise customers. The LAN Lite feature set has entry-level L2 features and is targeted at mid market deployments. Following are the notable hardware differences:
Ease of management with Cisco FlexStack
Power of Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) capabilities
Increased number of VLANs
Redundant power system (Cisco RPS 2300) support (2960-S only)
SFP+ (for the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series)
Software feature compare between Catalyst 2960S with LAN Base and Catalyst 2960S with LAN Lite
|Technology||LAN Base||LAN Lite|
|802.1x MAC-Auth Bypas||Yes||Yes|
|Link STate Tracking||Yes||No|
Yes. WS-C2960S-24TS-L is IPv6 certified. The 2960S switches with LAN Base software support IPv6 host, management, MLD snooping, port-based ACLs, router ACLs, and First Hop Security (RA Guard, Source Guard, and Binding Integrity Guard).
No. WS-C2960S-24TS-L uses the Universal image, but no license is required. The feature is bound to the hardware model type and cannot be changed. For convenience, a single software image is used for all Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series Switches, regardless of whether they are a LAN Base or LAN Lite model.
Yes. 3Anetwork offers free ongoing Cisco IOS Software updates for certain fixed-configuration and stackable Cisco Catalyst switches at no additional cost. For the life of the product, updates within the Cisco IOS Software package purchased (LAN Lite and LAN Base) will be made available.
Yes, you can use a 3rd party transceiver, however switch will generate warning, 3Anetwork recommend customers using original Cisco transceiver.
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.
Three FlexStack cables lengths are supported: 0.5 meter;1.0 meter; 3.0 meter.
No. FlexStack and StackWise are different technologies and these switches cannot be stacked together. Also, FlexStack cables have different connectors than the StackWise cables.
