Cisco & Dell PowerConnect Switches - Interoperability

Unanswered Question

Hi - I have just inherited a network running Dell Powerconnect 6200 and 3400 switches in the production environment. I have some spare Cisco switches namely 2900s, 3500s which iwould like to also introduce into the environment, would then be any issue with operating the switches from the 2 different vendors? i will be doing a combination of L2/L3 switching and VLANs

I have this problem too.

You should be fine. We have setup clients who initially purchased Dell Powerconnect Switches (3com with Dell slapped on the front). We have had no issues putting Cisco 3500 and 3750's.
