• Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in 8-, 24-, and 48-port configurations

• RPS support and support for a wide range of SFP transceivers

• Enhanced security through Layer 2-4 access control lists (ACLs), DHCP Snooping, and more extensive Network Admission Control capabilities such as Web authentication and 802.1x enhancements

• Additional QoS capabilities: The LAN Base IOS supports policing, class and policy maps, differentiated services code point (DSCP), AutoQoS, and configurable queue weights, buffers, and thresholds

• Higher network-level availability with features such as Flex Links and Link State Tracking

• Increased number of VLANs (256) and other enhancements such as IPv6 Host, MLD Snooping, LLDP-MED, RSPAN, MVR, DHCP Option 82, and IP SLA (responder)

LAN Lite is slightly different hardware, which can't be upgraded to more advanced IOS.

It also has some limitations in whats possible to configure in terms on QOS.

LAN Base is somewhat limited in what the IOS supports, but not to the same degree as the Lite version.

But it can be upgraded with more advanced IOS if needed.
