Catalyst 2960-X

Cisco also used Partner Summit as a stage for unveiling the Catalyst 2960-X Series Access Switches, the newest member of Cisco's flagship Catalyst family and one that's optimized for users embracing software-defined networks and BYOD.

The new switches, which are set to launch in July, deliver twice the bandwidth of their predecessors, and provide enhanced capabilities for application visibility and control through NetFlow Lite. Cisco said the Catalyst 2960-X series allows for stacking of up to eight switches and 80 Gbps bandwidth, and offers control plane redundancy across all switches in the stack.

Energy efficiency is another key feature of the new Catalyst line, which includes hibernation modes for both downlinks and switches to consume energy during downtime.
