To Read the Codes of Cisco 3750/3750-X Series

The great Cisco Catalyst 3750 series contributes vastly success to Cisco in the network hardware market and have various models. And each model of Cisco 3750 series associates with unique product code by providing different features. How to choose the right model with right features to fit your network requirement among the different models? The figure below addresses 3750 series switch product code part by part to clarify the features in which the particular model of 3750 series switch can provide.

Cisco 3750 Codes

More details…you can read the following tips that show a full explanation for the figure above

WS stands for Switch
C stands for Catalyst series
3750 stands for the 3750-series product line

Product Line Info

a –> blank, G, E, V2, X
blank=classic 3750 switch, 6.5 or 13.1 mpps forwarding rate
G=all ports are gigabit, 35 or 38 mpps forwarding rate
E=enterprise line, 65.5 or 101.2 mpps forwarding rate
V2=next-generation product line with all FastEthernet ports
X=next-generation product line with all Gigabit Ethernet ports

xx –>12, 16, 24, 48
12=12 Ethernet ports
16=16 Ethernet ports
24=24 Ethernet ports
48=48 Ethernet ports

b –>T, P, F, S, U, PF, W
T=Ethernet ports
P=Power over Ethernet
S=all ports are Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP)
U=UPOE suppor
PF=Full POE support
F=100BASE-FX fiber
W=Wireless

c –> blank, S, D

blank=no uplink ports
S= 2 or 4 Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) uplinks
D=10 Gigabit Ethernet XENPAK or SFP+ uplinks

d –> L, E, S
L=Lan Base image

S= Standard IP Base image (IPB)
E= Enhanced IP Services (IPS)

ee –> 1U, D, 25, 50
1U= 1U Rack Height
D= DC Power Supply
25= 25 Access points for wireless supported
50= 50 Access points for wireless supported

The Cisco StackWise & StackWise Plus Technology in Cisco 3750 Switches

Now, the Cisco 3750-X series is the more popular one. Both Cisco 3750 and 3750-X series are Campus LAN Access Switches. And the Cisco 3750 product line consists of non-blocking switches which support Jumbo frames, flow control and are easy to build up and expand a pay as you grow infrastructure. The Cisco Catalyst 3750-E and Catalyst 3750-X will run StackWise Plus when connected to a stack of all Cisco Catalyst 3750-E and Catalyst 3750-X switches, while it will run StackWise if there is one or more Cisco Catalyst 3750 in the stack.

Cisco 3750-E and 3750-X StackWise Plus and 3750 StackWise switches can be combined in the same stack. When this happens, the Cisco Catalyst 3750-E, or Catalyst 3750-Xswitches negotiate from StackWise Plus mode down to StackWise mode. That is, they no longer perform destination stripping. However, the Cisco Catalyst 3750-E and the Catalyst 3750-X will retain its ability to perform local switching. More…
