The WS-C3850-48P-S (Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series) provides capabilities that ideally suited to support the convergence of wired and wireless access. The new Cisco Unified Access Data™ Plane (UADP) Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) powers the switch and enables uniform wired-wireless policy enforcement, application visibility, flexibility, and application optimization. This convergence is built on the resilience of the new and improved Cisco StackWise®-480 technology.
The Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series Switches support full IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), Cisco Universal Power Over Ethernet (Cisco UPOE®), modular and field-replaceable network modules, RJ-45 and fiber-based downlink interfaces, and redundant fans and power supplies.
The Cisco Catalyst 3850 Switch currently offers the industry’s highest 480 Gbps stacking bandwidth to meet network demand, including gigabit desktop and 802.11ac wireless. The switch delivers advanced capabilities such as a high-performance 48 port GE switch, 480 G stacking, Power over Ethernet Plus, StackPower and Flexible NetFlow on all ports.
The WS-C3850-48P-S offers advanced enterprise-class, stackable, access layer switching, and benefits from full convergence between wired and wireless networks on a single platform.
