I am looking for advice on which switch would be the best for my environment.
Our network is very small, but highly sensitive to speed and latency. Our systems receive an average of 5Mbps - 10Mbps multicast data, with millisecond peaks of +120Mbps.
The performance specs of the 3750-E seemed very good and capable for our needs, but then I read up on the CISCO 4948's whcih deem dedicated to performance and latency.
1) What's the difference between WS-C4948-S and WS-C4948-E?
2) The 3750-E does hardware-based mulicast routing. is this the same for the 4948's?
