There is a quite interesting in value-for-money perspective model ME 3400
Cisco ME 3400G-12CS AC with 12 dual-purpose (10/100/1000 and Small Form-Factor Pluggable [SFP]) ports, four SFP uplinks, and two fixed redundant AC power supplies (part number ME-3400G-12CS-A)
which costs less than 3750G with 12 SFP slots and no redundant Power supply nor copper GigEth ports.
I am designing LAN for an enterprise customer with around 10 aggregation switches. In the core will be two Catalyst 6513.
As aggregation - either some 3750G, 3560G or these ME3400 - which are a lot more flexible.
I've checked, and such enterprise LAN Network Mgmt software as CiscoWorks LMS 3.0 supports them.
Where is the catch - it seems that Cisco does not recommend ME3400 for Enterprise LAN - or what? We have not had any experiense with ME3400. Please Help.
