Cisco 3560X, Cisco 3750X to Cisco Catalyst 3850 & 3650 Switches

Cisco 3650 switch, like the new Cisco 3850 series, was designed to converge wired and wireless networking. Last year, Cisco unveiled the Catalyst 3650 switch that features line rate 24 and 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports and an integrated wireless controller. It can be stacked in groups of nine switches for support of up to 25 access points and 1,000 clients at 40Gbps. Stacking bandwidth is 160Gbps.

Catalyst 3850 Series, also the new stackable GE switch, is based on a new Cisco programmable ASIC called the Unified Access Data Plane (UADP) that is designed to converge processing and termination of wired and wireless traffic into a single data plane, enable consistent services to be applied to both, and allow for deployment of software-defined networking services. The Cisco 3850 represents the next generations of Cisco’s Catalyst 3000 series switches and a successor to the Catalyst 3750-X. Cisco 3650 and 3850 Series, both are the new Cisco Catalyst 3K series. What are the main differences between them and each of their main features? Here we will shared some info about Cisco Catalyst 3K Comparisons: Cisco 3560X vs. Cisco 3750X vs. Cisco 3650 vs. Cisco 3850 Series. More detailed features, more specs and more comparisons…

Model Comparison for the Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches

Cisco 3650 Model Comparison

Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches are the next generation of enterprise-class, stackable access-layer switches that provide full wired and wireless convergence on a single platform. The Cisco Catalyst 3650 enables uniform wired-wireless policy enforcement, application visibility, flexibility, application optimization, and superior resiliency.

All Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches have fixed, built-in uplink ports. The table below provides high-level comparisons of the different available models in the Catalyst 3650 Series Switch family. You may view all models with:

  • 4 x Gigabit
  • 2 x 10 Gigabit
  • 4 x 10 Gigabit

All models can be purchased with LAN Base, IP Base, or IP Services software. Customers need to purchase the IP Base or the IP Services software-enabled models in order to use the Catalyst 3650 Series Switch as a wireless controller.
