Cisco Replacement For WS-C2960-24TT-L & WS-C2960-24TC-L

I heard that Cisco will be replacing the WS-C2960-24TT-L & WS-C2960-24TC-L. Does anyone know what is the model they will replace them with?

The 2960X is the latest line of 2960 series switches. These would provide the closest replacement to your models.

Hello Soulja and rauenpc,

Thank you for your reply. But the switch models you mentioned in your reply are all Gigabit ports, whereas the WS-C2960-24TT-L & WS-C2960-24TC-L are 24 10/100 plus 2 Gigabit port.

That is correct. They are 10/100/1000 ports so if you have devices limited to 10/100, these switches will work just fine.

Hi rauenpc,

I see, so what you are saying is Cisco will not be replacing the WS-C2960-24TT-L & WS-C2960-24TC-L with another 24 10/100 plus 2 Gigabit port model, but will be replacing it with an all Gigabit port model. Am I correct?

It would appear to be so.

Cisco are trying to encourage users of 2960 switches to migrate to the 2960S switches.

The 2960X is an improvement on the 2960S but as I understand it this isn't a replacement.  The 2960S is still current (as is the 2960) and still has its place within Cisco's portfolio.

The 2960X offers significant advantages over the 2960S though, such as superior memory and CPU, 8-switch stacking capability and larger CAM table (for larger installations).

Craigbeck is correct, but I'll throw on additional thing out there. The pricing (at least Cisco's list pricing) is the same for the 2960S as the comparable 2960X. So for the same dollar amount you could take advantage of the improved hardware of the 2960X. Also, when it comes to support, I would assume that Cisco is going to end-of-life the 2960S well before the 2960X so you will have a longer potential period of support from Cisco.

That's exactly correct.  The 2960X is cheaper in some cases than the 2960S and will outlive its predecessors.
