C2960S-STACK vs. C2960S-F-STACK

Hello,

 

Just a quick question: what is the difference between the C2960S-STACK vs. C2960S-F-STACK?

 

According to this: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/catalyst-2960-series-switches/eos-eol-notice-c51-733348.html

 

C2960S-STACK = Catalyst 2960S Flexstack Stack Module

 

C2960S-F-STACK = Catalyst 2960S Flexstack Stack Module (FE)

 

What difference does the "FE" make?

 

Thanks folks!

C2960S-STACK  - This is Traditional Stacking on the backside of Cisco switch :

 

C2960S-F-STACK  - You get Stack Module

Thank you for the reply.

I should have clarified though, sorry, both of the part numbers (C2960S-STACK and C2960S-F-STACK) are stacking modules.

They look identical apart from the "-F" variance in the part number.
