We have a spare 6509 (purchased 2004) chassis and I had assumed that by upgrading the 6509 to Supervisor 32 and buying new GB line modules I would gain better performance than say purchasing a new Catalyst 4510.
But from investigation of the data sheets it seems that the E Series of the 4510R offers better performance than the 6509 with Sup32.
Could someone please help me with this?
If you had spare 6500 series chassis what would you do in terms of upgrade? Is it cost effective?
As you would expect I am trying to get the best performance but by keeping costs down.
We require 300+ ports, PoE possibility, basic routing capabilities.
