1. LAN Base is superior compared to LAN Lite as it provides Advanced QoS and Network Admission Control (NAC) features.


2. Former gives you Fiber or Copper uplinks with the purchase of the SFP while the latter gives you static Copper uplink ports.


3. You can either cluster for single IP management or manage each switch individually.

As for Vlans, you can use VTP Server/Client model or VTP Transparent. On the VTP Server/Client model, one switch can act as Server and Layer2 Vlans are created there, then propagated onto the VTP Clients. With the VTP Transparent, you need to configure Layer2 Vlans on each switch.


4. See my reply to your other post.
