Cisco Catalyst 3750-X and 3560-X Series switches are enterprise-class line of standalone and stackable switches, respectively. These switches offer high availability, scalability, security, energy efficiency and ease of use with features such as StackPower, IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus configurations, an optional network module, redundant power supplies and Media Access Control Security Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series X-Plus StackWise technology is scalable, easily managed, and investment protection for evolving business needs. Cisco Catalyst 3750-X 3560-X improves productivity by enabling applications such as IP, wireless and video for an unlimited network.

In addition to basic IP and fixed IP services functionality, Cisco Catalyst 3750-X 3560-X Series comes with a base of new LAN features. The function of three sets available in all Cisco Catalyst 3750-X 3560-X Series Switches are: LAN Base: Improving Predictive IP services

Baseline company IP Services

Enterprise Services: IP Services

LAN Base offers improved functionality of intelligent services that include comprehensive Layer 2 functions. IP core functions gives you basic business services, in addition to all the functions of LAN Base. IP core also includes support for access to routed access, Stackpower, and MACSec. IP provides the full functionality of Enterprise Services, which includes advanced Layer 3 features such as Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol, Open shortest path first, Border Gateway Protocol, Protocol Independent Multicast and IPv6 routing such as OSPFv3 and EIGRPv6. IP Services feature also includes a feature initiator of the Embedded Event Manager and IP service-level agreements.

All functionality of the software sets support the advanced security, QoS and management capabilities. IP Services features are available only for an upgrade there is no dedicated IP Services switch model. Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series Switches X LAN Base properties can be stacked with other Cisco Catalyst 3750-X LAN Base Series Switch. Stack Base LAN Switch IP Base or IP Services features are not supported.

Cisco Catalyst 3750-X 3560-X series Main features:

24/48, 10/100/1000 PoE + and non-PoE models

Optional four Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and two SFP uplinks 10 GbE SFP + network modules

Industry first PoE + with 30W of power for all ports in one rack unit

Two modular redundant power supplies and fans

Media Access Control Security (MACSec) hardware encryption

IPv4 and IPv6 routing, multicast routing, quality of service (QoS features), and security

USB type-A and type-B ports for storage and out of band Ethernet management port.

In addition to the above features, the Cisco Catalyst 3750-X also offer:

StackPower: An innovative feature for the first time in the industry to share power among the members of the technology stack

Cisco StackWise Plus for ease use and resilience of 64 Gb / s throughput

Investment protection with support for all other models in the Cisco Catalyst 3750 Switch

All models can be configured with four optional modules GbE or two 10 GbE network modules. Models are available with LAN Base or IP Base feature set.

In addition to IP-base and IP services feature, the Cisco Catalyst 3750-3560-X and 3750-X series are supplied with a new LAN Base feature set. The role of three groups available to all Cisco Catalyst 3750-X, 3560-X Series switches are the following:

LAN Base: Improving Intelligent IP services

Baseline: IP Services Business Services: Business Services

Cisco StackWise Plus technology has built a great success, StackWise technology is a leader in the industry, which is a premium stacking architecture optimized for GbE. StackWise technology is designed to respond to additions, deletions while keeping the performance constant. Stack operates as a single switching unit that is managed by a master switch elected from the member switches. Master switch automatically creates and updates all the switching and optional routing tables. The working stack can accept new members or remove existing ones without service interruption. StackWise creates a very flexible system with up to nine individual switches provide simplified administration of a single IP address, a telnet session, a command line interface, the automotive version of the amendment, automatic configuration, and more.

StackWise Plus supports all the features of StackWise and provides backward compatibility with the Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series while improving the turnover of the system up to 64 Gbps. StackWise Plus also allows for local switching in the Cisco Catalyst 3750-X series. Local switch packets coming into a port in the Cisco Catalyst 3750-X series or 3750-E Series Switches for another port on this switch do not have to traverse the stack ring, which will increase the transmission capacity of the switch. Cisco Catalyst 3750-X Series stacks up to nine switches as a single logical unit for a total of 432 Ethernet 10/100/1000 ports with 18 10 GbE ports. Individual 10/100/1000 units can be assembled in any combination to evolve with network needs.

The Cisco Catalyst 3750-X series StackPower Cisco introduces technology, innovation capacity of the interconnection system that allows the power supply in a cell as a common resource shared by all switches. StackPower Cisco unifies the individual power switches installed and creates a group of power to direct that power when necessary. This feature is only available in the Cisco Catalyst 3750-X series switches or IP based IP services feature set. Up to four switches can be configured in a stack StackPower special connector in the back of the switch with StackPower cable, which is different from the StackWise cables available in all Cisco Catalyst 3750 models.

StackPower can be set to power-sharing arrangements or termination. In a power-sharing state power, all power supplies stacked together and divided by switches in the stack. In redundant mode, where the budget for the total power, calculated on the stack, the maximum power output is not included. This power is in reserve and used to keep the power switches and attached devices, if a power failure occurs, the network operates without interruption. After the failure of a power supply, changes in your StackPower will become power sharing.

StackPower allows customers to simply add additional power to a position in the stack, or to provide redundant power for a member of the battery or simply to add more power to the pool. StackPower eliminates the need for an external redundant power system or the installation of dual power in all stack members.

Catalyst 3750-X and the 3560-X Series switches support a voluntary network module uplink ports. The switch configuration by default does not include the uplink module, you can choose four GbE ports (3kx-NM-1G) or network module with two 10 GbE ports (3kx-NM-10G) at the time of purchasing the power switch. 10GbE uplink module has four physical ports and two SFP + ports and two SFP standard. SFP + connector supports both 10GbE and GbE ports, allowing the customer to use the investment SFP GbE and 10 GbE update when business requirements change, without having to do a complete upgrade of an access switch. Uplink module is hot-swappable.
