Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series with LAN Lite software
Figure 1. Cisco Catalyst 2960 Models with LAN Base Software
Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series Switches with LAN Base
software deliver intelligent services for commercial and
midsize enterprise wiring closets and branch offices.
The LAN Base software supports enhanced integrated
security, including Network Admission Control (NAC),
advanced quality of service (QoS), availability, and
scalable management to enable new converged applica-
tions.
Primary Benefits
Connectivity: Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet
connectivity in 8-port, 24-port, and 48-port configu-
rations
Power over Ethernet (PoE): 48 PoE ports, 24 full
PoE ports and 24-ports (PoE supported on 8 ports)
configurations
Advanced Services: Layer 2 switching with intel-
ligent Layer 2 through 4 services for the network
edge such as voice, video, and wireless LAN

Customers
The Cisco Catalyst 2960 switches with LAN Base
software are for users who:
Want to power PoE devices, including Cisco
IP phones, wireless access points, or IP video
cameras.
Expect intelligent services for new converged
applications for midmarket wiring closets and small
branch offices
Are interested in intelligent features and capabilities
such as QoS, enhanced security, and availability
Want to quickly deploy and easily manage their
networks and are interested in ease of installation,
configuration and troubleshooting
Cisco Catalyst 2960 switches with the LAN Lite software
image (Figure 2) simplify the migration from nonintel-
ligent hubs and unmanaged switches to a fully scalable
managed network. The LAN Lite Cisco IOS
provides entry-level security, QoS, PoE, and availability
capabilities while lowering the network total cost of
ownership.
