For a budget R&S home lab, I am thinking to add
2610XMs, 128D/32F, IOS 12.4 advanced enterprise
and 3560 8 port switches.
What I have so far is
1x terminal server
They served me well for the CCNP/CCIP labs. But none of them can run IOS 12.4 Advanced Enterprise.
My concern is about the 2610XMs. Will they be sufficient, or is it better to buy for a few Cisco 2801. Well, they are not exactly low budget. That's why I am asking. Still, I don't want to waste any time and/or money on the wrong equipment.
What are your thoughts on this?
