I need to implement a distribution switch between the datacenter an our office (6509 at datacenter and 4507R at the office) but not sure what switch to go for. The 1GB circuit between office and datacenter will terminate on the distribution switch. So far my options are WS-C3750G-24TS-E and Catalyst 3560G-24TS. I believe both switches can provide 32Gbps bandwidth.


Please recommend a good switch.

Yes both WS-C3750G-24TS-E and Catalyst 3560G-24TS will provide 32Gbps bandwidth.Cisco Catalyst 3750G-24TS-E will provide 32-Gbps and high-speed stacking bus and the Cisco Catalyst 3560G-24TS Switch with 32 Gbps of forwarding bandwidth is an appropriate choice for smaller clusters with up to 24 nodes. You can go for any of these cisco switch.
