Besides the number of ports, is there any major difference between 48 or 24 port 3750 Switches. I was reviewing the model comparison chart and noticed that the forwarding Rate was more than double for 48port switch. 24-port has forwarding rate 6.4mpps, and 48-port has 13.1mpps.
Does this make 24-port switch much slower when it comes to switching packets. For data only traffic it could be acceptable, but for converged traffic (Voice and Data) speed should always be the priority.
The only reason I am going for 24 port POE switch since it can supply the maximum 15.4 power to each of its ports compare to 48-port that can only support 7.7W per port.
Can't decide which one to go with as I thought that the backplane, and switching capabilites on both switches would be the same.
