Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches 24 port and 48 port
Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches are access layer switches and support Cisco StackWise-160 Technology which allowed them stack with up to 9 switches and support 160 Gpbs stackable bandwidth. As an integrated wireless controller, Cisco Catalyst 3650 series switch also supports for up to 50 access points and 1000 wireless clients on each switching entity (switch or stack).
Cisco 3650 switches offer 60 Watts of UPOE per ports and POE+ for applications. Besides, they support dual redundant, modular power supplies and three modular fans providing redundancy.
Cisco Catalyst 3650 and 3850
Integrated wireless controllers
Cisco Catalyst 3650 and 3850 series switches are integrated wireless controllers, which are designed to manage Access Points more expediently.
As integrated wireless controllers, Cisco Catalyst 3650 series switches can directly connected 1–50 APs per switch/stack and 1000 clients per stack, delivering 40 Gbps per switch.
Cisco Catalyst 3850 series switches can directly connecte 1–100 APs per switch/stack and 2000 clients per stack, delivering 40 Gbps per switch.
If the APs are used in small campus or branch, they are suitable to make Catalyst 3650 and 3850 be wireless controllers. These switches also can support POE for those Access Points.
Cisco StackWise-160 and StackWise-480
The Cisco Catalyst 3650 supports an optional stacking module that is based on the Cisco StackWise-160 technology, while the Cisco Catalyst 3850 supports StackWise-480 technology.
Cisco StackWise-160 technology is built on the highly successful industry-leading StackWise technology, which is a premium stacking architecture. StackWise-160 has a stack bandwidth of 160 Gbps. StackWise‑160 uses Cisco IOS Software SSO for providing resiliency within the stack. The stack behaves as a single switching unit that is managed by an “active” switch elected by the member switches. The active switch automatically elects a standby switch within the stack. The active switch creates and updates all the switching/routing/wireless information and constantly synchronizes that information with the standby switch.
If the active switch fails, the standby switch assumes the role of the active switch and continues to the keep the stack operational. Access points continue to remain connected during an active-to-standby switchover. A working stack can accept new members or delete old ones without service interruption.
Cisco Catalyst 3650 and 3850 Series Switches are going to replace their predecessor. You may consider to change your old switches now.
