For system1, Imagine I need a switch with 10 ports to connect 1000MB copper servers.
For system2, I need total of 4 ports to connect 1000MB copper mainframe systems.
System1 and system2 do not need to communicate.
Is a WS-C2960G-24TC-L switch in which I could assign respective 12 ports for VLANSystem1 and 12 ports for VLANSystem2 the right switch for this situation?
I believe you are referring system 1 and system 2 to some vlan numbers?
If thats correct you have the right switch with you. You will be able to create vlans on this switch and also provide them names if you want and then assign the ports to those vlans.
