The Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches are business-class lines of stacking and standalone switches, respectively. These switches provide high availability, scalability, security, energy efficiency, and simple operation with innovative features like IEEE 802 at Power over Ethernet Plus configurations, optional network modules, redundant power supplies, and media access control security features. Cisco Catalyst 3560-X improves productivity by enabling applications such as IP telephony, wireless, and video for a borderless network experience.
In addition to the IP Base and IP Services feature sets, the Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series includes a replacement set of LAN Base features. The three feature sets available with all Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series switches are:
The LAN Base feature set includes comprehensive Layer 2 features, with up to 255 VLANs. The IP Base feature set provides basic business services in addition to all the features of the Base LAN, with 1K VLANs. IP Base also includes support for routed access and the new Cisco Service Module.
The IP Services feature set provides comprehensive business services including advanced Layer 3 features such as Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM), and IPv6 routings such as OSPFv3 and EIGRPv6. All software feature sets support advanced security, QoS, and management features.
Customers can transparently upgrade the software feature set on Cisco Catalyst 3560-X Series Switches by enabling Cisco IOS® Software. Software activation authorizes and enables the Cisco IOS Software feature sets. Cisco IOS software examines a special file on the switch, called a license file when the switch is powered on.
Depending on the type of license, the Cisco IOS software enables the appropriate feature set. License types can be changed or updated to activate a different set of features.
All switch models can be configured with four optional network modules. UPOE, PoE +, and non-PoE switch models are available with the LAN Base or IP Base feature set. The IP Services feature set is available as an upgrade option at the time of order or via license at a later time. GE's SFP switch models are available with an IP Base or IP Services feature set.
