Cisco Catalyst 3750 V2 Series, Features and Configurations

March 4 2014 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Cisco Switches - Cisco Firewall

The Cisco Catalyst 3750 v2 Series is a next-generation energy-efficient Layer 3 Fast Ethernet stackable switch. It supports Cisco EnergyWise technology, which helps you manage the power consumption of your network, thereby reducing energy costs and carbon footprint.

The Cisco 3750 v2 Switch consumes less power than its predecessors and is an ideal access layer for enterprise, retail, and branch environments. It helps increase productivity and protects your network investment by providing a unified network for data, voice, and video.

Cisco Catalyst 3750 v2 Switches (Front and Back)


Catalyst 3750 v2 Series Highlights

• Lower power consumption than its predecessors

• Backward compatible with Cisco Catalyst 3750 and 3750-E Series Switches

EnergyWise support to monitor energy consumption of network infrastructure and implement energy saving programs to reduce energy costs

• Open shortest path First (OSPF) routing with IP Base feature set

• Compatible with Cisco Redundant Power System (RPS) 2300

• Uniform depth of 11.9 inches on all units for better cable management

• IPv6 routing included in the IP Services feature set

Cisco Switch Configurations

The Cisco Catalyst 3750 v2 Series consists of the switches listed in the following table.




24 Ethernet 10/100 ports and 2 Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 rack unit (RU)


48 Ethernet 10/100 ports and 4 SFP Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1RU


24 Ethernet 10/100 ports with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and 2 SFP Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 RU


48 Ethernet 10/100 ports with PoE and 4 SFP Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1RU


24 Ethernet 100FX SFP ports and 2 SFP Gigabit Ethernet ports; 1 RU; Transceivers are optional and not included with the base switch

Cisco Catalyst 3750 V2 Software

The Cisco Catalyst 3750 v2 Series can be purchased with the IP Base or IP Services license preinstalled.

The IP Base license offers advanced quality of service (QoS), rate limiting, and access control lists (ACLs), and basic static and Routing Information Protocol (RIP) and OSPF routing functions.

The IP Services license provides a richer set of enterprise-class features, including advanced hardware-based IP unicast and IP multicast routing as well as policy-based routing (PBR). The Advanced IP Services license, which includes IPv6 routing and IPv6 ACL support, is now included in the IP Services license. Upgrade licenses are available to upgrade a switch from the IP Base license to the IP Services license.

Cisco Catalyst 3750 V2 Series-Cisco EnergyWise& Power over Ethernet

We mentioned that Cisco Catalyst 3750 v2 Series supports Cisco EnergyWise, which is a technology that enables monitoring, reporting, and management of energy consumption by end devices that are EnergyWise enabled. This technology enables companies to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprints. EnergyWise features enable you to:

• Discover all Cisco EnergyWise enabled devices on the network

• Monitor and report power consumption by these devices

• Implement business rules to control power to these end devices

Power over Ethernet: The Cisco Catalyst 3750 v2 Series can provide a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for deployments that incorporate Cisco IP Phones, Cisco Aironetwireless LAN (WLAN) access points, or any IEEE 802.3af-compliant end device.

PoE eliminates the need for wall power outlets for each PoE-enabled device and significantly reduces the cost for additional electrical cabling that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments.

The Cisco Catalyst 3750 v2 24-port PoE switch can support Class 3 PoE or 15.4 watts (W) of PoE power on all 24 ports. Taking advantage of Cisco Catalyst Intelligent Power Management, the Cisco Catalyst 3750 v2 48-port PoE configurations can deliver the necessary power to support 24 ports at 15.4W, 48 ports at 7.7W, or any combination in between. Maximum power availability for a converged voice and data network is attainable when a Cisco Catalyst 3750 v2 Series Switch is combined with the Cisco RPS 2300 for protection against internal power supply failures and an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system to safeguard against power outages.
