We are currently looking for making a "core" for the network in our warehouse, and are looking at two solutions:
1. 4507, Dual sup., ethernet line card and fiber line card
2. A 3750 12 port SFP and a 48 port 2960
We are aware of the hardware differences between the two solutions, and that the 4507 would increase our reliability. However, my management has asked me since we would get 24x7x4 support on the 3750, and we could absorb 4 hours of downtime, what else does the 4507 offer besides redundancy that the 3750 does not (performance, IOS features, etc) that would make it worth the $30,000 price difference?
Thanks in advance
