Type 1 and Type 2 Powered Devices for Cisco Catalyst WS-C2960X-48FPD-L Switch?

WS-C2960X-48FPD-L switch supports both the PoE and PoE+ standards and can classify a powered device as either Type 1 or 2 with a one-event classification. A Type 2 powered device supports Class 4 in order to obtain more power than is supported by the legacy power levels (30W). A Type 1 powered device can support only up to Class 3 or 15.4W. Can Cisco Catalyst WS-C2960X-48FPD-L switches detect Type 1 and Type 2 powered devices? Anyone knows?

Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series front panel sticker has the feature set name. From the rear of the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series Switch the LAN Lite models do not support stacking. The left side will not have a location for the FlexStack-Plus module to be inserted.

From the Cisco IOS Software command line there are two ways to tell which software image the switch has.

--> The last letter in the product ID. If the last letter is "-L" it's LAN Base. If it's "-LL" it's LAN Lite. If it's "-I" it's IP Lite. For example: WS-C2960XR-48FPS-I is IP Lite. WS-C2960X-48LPS-L is LAN Base. WS-C2960X-48TS-LL is LAN Lite.

--> The output from the "show license" Cisco IOS Software command-line interface (CLI) command. If LAN Base is being used that will be the active license. If it's LAN Lite that will be the active license.

In the following example output LAN Base is the active license. C2960-X_Switch# show license Index 1 Feature: lanlite Period left: 0 minute 0 second

Index 2 Feature: lanbase Period left: Lifetime License Type: Permanent License State: Active In Use License Priority: Medium License Count: Non-Counted
