3750 vs. 3560

Unanswered Question
Nov 19th, 2007

Are there any other reasons to pick the 3750 over the 3560 for a branch office switch? I've seen where the main difference is in stacking, which is not really a factor for me.

I have also been told that the lifespan of the 3750 will be longer than the 3560. Is that true?

Retail cost difference is about $5,000 - 7,000 more for the 3750. That is based on the 48 port 10/100/1000 PoE standard and enhanced versions. That could certainly add up quickly. The 3560 would definitely be less expensive.


I have this problem too.

The 3750 is stackable switch and provide more performance and scalability than 3560.

Essentially a 3560 is a stand-alone switch which is ideally suited to a branch deployment where high resiliency is not a requirement.

In comparison the 3750 is a wiring closet enterprise class switch which provides high resiliency, together with stacking capability, and 32Gb backplane when stacked.

Take a look at the video in the following link, this highlight the important features:-
