- Converged Wired Plus Wireless Access
The Cisco Catalyst 3650 is a standalone and stackable access switching platform that enables wired plus wireless services on a single Cisco IOS XE software-based platform. With this, Cisco has pioneered a host of rich capabilities such as high availability based on stateful switchover (SSO) on stacking, granular QoS, security, and Flexible Netflow (FNF) across wired and wireless in a seamless fashion.
- Cisco StackWise-160 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.
- Efficient Switch Operation
Cisco Catalyst 3650 series switch, designed and engineered by Cisco, provides optimum power-saving, EEE, low-power operations for industry best-in-class power management and power consumption capabilities. The Cisco Catalyst 3650 ports are capable of reduced power modes so that ports not in use can move into a lower power utilization state.
- Environmentally Responsible
Organizations may choose to turn off access point radios to reduce power consumption during off-peak hours. The integrated Wireless LAN controller avoids the deployment of additional devices in the network.
- Network Management Tools
The Cisco Catalyst 3650 series switch offers both a superior CLI for detailed configuration and Cisco Prime infrastructure for unified wired plus wireless management. Prime infrastructure provides day 0 and ongoing provisioning, ongoing monitoring and maintenance, configuration templates, and device and user 360-degree views and serves as the FNF collector for user traffic views.
- Superior QoS
The Cisco Catalyst 3650 series offers Gigabit Ethernet speed with intelligent services that keep traffic flowing smoothly, even at 10 times the normal network speed. Industry-leading mechanisms for cross-stack marking, classification, and scheduling deliver superior performance for data, voice, and video traffic, all at wire speed.
