Cisco WS-C3524-XL-EN

The Catalyst 3524 XL switch is the member of the Cisco Systems Catalyst 3500 series XL, a scalable line of stackable 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet switches that delivers premium performance, manageability, and flexibility with unparalleled investment protection. With a 10-Gbps switching fabric and a maximum 6.5-million-packet-per second, wire-speed forwarding rate, these switches are ideal for creating high-performance local-area networks. Cisco Catalyst 3500 series XL Standard Edition switches include several exceptional features to increase network performance, manageability and security. The command switch feature delivers single-IP managed Cisco Switch Clustering technology to up to 16 interconnected Catalyst 3500 XL, 2900 XL, and Catalyst 1900 switches. Cisco Group Management Protocol (CGMP) enhances performance of multimedia applications and reduces network traffic by allowing a switch to selectively and dynamically forward IP multicast traffic to targeted end stations. This model uses the enterprise edition software.

Product Specifications

Catalyst 3500 Series XL — Stackable 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet
Switches
Product Overview
The Cisco Systems Catalyst 3500 series XL is a scalable line of stackable 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet switches that deliver
premium performance, manageability, and flexibility, with unparalleled investment protection. This line of low-cost, highperformance switching solutions provides next-generation stackable switching. Catalyst 3500 XL stacks allow management
of all switched ports from a single IP address and provide interconnected switches with an independent high-speed stack bus
that preserves valuable desktop ports.
Cisco Catalyst 3500 series XL switches take stacking to a new level with revolutionary Cisco Switch Clustering technology
and GigaStack GBICs. With Cisco Switch Clustering, users can manage over 380 ports from a single IP address, and connect
up to 16 switches, regardless of physical location, with a broad range of Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, and Gigabit Ethernet media.
Cisco Switch Clustering is supported on all Catalyst 3500 XL, 2900 XL and Catalyst 1900 switches.
All Catalyst 3500 series XL switches feature Cisco IOS software and Cisco Visual Switch Manager (CVSM) software, an
easy-to-use Web-based management interface. All high-performance Catalyst 3500 series XL switches are available in either
Standard or Enterprise Editions. Enterprise Edition switches offer advanced software features, including complete 802.1Q
and ISL VLAN support, TACACS+ security, and fault tolerance through Uplink Fast.

Key Features and Benefits

Cisco 1000BaseT GBIC—Gigabit Interface Converter
The Cisco 1000BaseT Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) is an ideal solution for Catalyst 3500 Series XL and Catalyst 2900
Series XL customers, providing full duplex Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to high-end workstations and between wiring
closets over existing copper infrastructures. The GBIC technology leverages the industry’s flexible, standards-based
1000BaseX design allowing for a simple and low-cost migration path to Gigabit Ethernet.
The availability of the new 1000BaseT GBIC increases the deployment and application flexibility of the Catalyst 3500 Series
XL and 2900 Series XL with a range of media transceivers that include multiple stacking options, short-and long-haul fiber,
and copper connectivity (including SX, LX/LH, ZX, TX, and Cisco GigaStack converters).

Example Configuration
The three major product applications of the Catalyst 3500 series XL are defined as follows:

10/100 Desktop Connectivity
Catalyst 3500 series XL switches can be deployed for high-performance desktop connectivity providing dedicated 10 or
100 Mbps to workstations (Figure 1-8.). Gigabit Ethernet ports will be used for uplink connections to servers or uplinks to
the corporate backbone. The Catalyst 3512 XL offers a low entry price 10/100 solution, while the Catalyst 3524 XL offers
the lowest price-per-port.

Stacking/Clustering
The Cisco GigaStack GBIC and Cisco Switch Clustering technology offer customers a wide range of stack and cluster
connectivity options. Several Catalyst 3500 XL, 2900 XL, and Catalyst 1900 switches may be deployed in a switch clustering
or GigaStack GBIC configuration and managed with a single IP address. The switches are used mostly for desktop
connectivity with limited aggregation. Gigabit Ethernet ports will be used for uplinks to corporate backbone or connections
to a Gigabit aggregation switch. Illustrated here are three sample configurations: Independent Stack Bus, Point-to-Point
Connections, and Cisco Switch Clustering. Performance levels scale from a 1 Gbps forwarding rate in a daisy-chain
configuration up to a 2 Gbps forwarding rate in a point-to-point connection.

Aggregation
The Catalyst 3500 XL switches can be deployed in wiring closets to aggregate workgroup networking devices such as
Ethernet and 10/100 switches; 10BaseT and 10/100 hubs; and workgroup servers. The Catalyst 3524 XL and 3512 XL are
well suited for customers who need a 10/100 aggregation switch with Gigabit Ethernet uplinks to backbone or servers (as
shown in Figure 1-12.). The eight Gigabit Ethernet ports on the Catalyst 3508G XL make the switch ideal for aggregating a
group of 10/100 switches with Gigabit Ethernet uplinks and Gigabit Ethernet servers in a high-performance wiring closet
aggregation configuration.
