Why We Should Choose the Cisco 3850 and 3650 Switches?

The Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series is the next generation of enterprise-class stackable
Ethernet access and aggregation layer switches that provide full convergence between
wired and wireless on a single platform. Cisco Unified Access Data Plane (UADP)
application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) powers the switch and enables uniform
wired-wireless policy enforcement, application visibility, flexibility and application
optimization. This convergence is built on the resilience of the new and improved Cisco
StackWise-480 technology.
The Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series is the next generation of enterprise-class standalone
and stackable access-layer switches that provide the foundation for full convergence
between wired and wireless on a single platform. The Cisco Catalyst 3650 is built on the
advanced Cisco StackWise-160, and takes advantage of the new Cisco® Unified Access
Data Plane (UADP) application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC). This switch can enable
uniform wired-wireless policy enforcement, application visibility, flexibility, application
optimization, and superior resiliency. The Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches support
full IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), and offer modular and fieldreplaceable redundant fans and power supplies. They can help you increase wireless
productivity and reduce your TCO.
Cisco Catalyst 3850 offers higher AP support, modular uplinks and StackPower in
addition to Cisco Catalyst 3650 features.
