It depends on the cost as well as the requirement of the client,its all ways recommend to go for a manageable switch for easy troubleshooting as well easy to manage the network,

Hi,[PLS Rate if HELPS]

Basically availaibility of Users doesn't match the required ports.

Anyhow, selection of Manage / Unmanage Switches depends upon the LAN setup. If there is no kind of VLAN Segmentation, Port Security Feature Usage, etc., and if all the users were directly connected to the Internet / corporate network to use the Infra..means you can go for Unmanaged switches.

If all the above like VLAN Segmentation, Port Security Feature required means you can go for Managed Switches.


Recommended: The CISCO Catalyst 2950 Series Intelligent Ethernet Switches are a prime example of access layer switches that add this higher level of intelligence and control without sacrificing the traditional simplicity of Ethernet LAN switches.
