The FlexStack stack module is hot-swappable and can be added to any Cisco Catalyst 2960-S switch with LAN Base software. Switches connected to a stack will automatically upgrade to the stack's Cisco IOS Software version and transparently join the stack without additional intervention.
Cisco FlexStack and Cisco IOS Software provide true stacking, with all switches in a stack acting as a single switch unit. FlexStack provides a unified data plane, unified configuration, and single IP address for switch management. The advantages of true stacking include lower total cost of ownership and higher availability through simplified management and cross-stack features including EtherChannel, SPAN, and FlexLink. Note that cross-stack features must be disabled before removing the stack module from an active stack member switch.
FlexStack also allows mixed stacking: 2960-S and 2960-SF switches can be combined to provide a combination of Gigabit and Fast Ethernet ports in a single switch stack.
