Hello Sisil,

the following C3750 can be a good match for your needs

WS-C3750E-24TD-S Catalyst 3750E 24 10/100/1000 + 2* 10GE (X2), 265W, IPB S/W

WS-C3750E-24TD-E Catalyst 3750E 24 10/100/1000 + 2* 10GE(X2), 265W, IPS S/W

WS-C3750E-24TD-SD Catalyst 3750E 24 10/100/1000 + 2* 10GE (X2), 265W DC, IPB S/W

Hope to help

I check that Switch but, don't have SFP port. he need to SFP port as well

Must be Support 10GE and SFP

Hello Sisil,

look at this guide

for switches you can look at Catalyst Guide

I'm afraid that this category of devices or has SFP ports or it has 10GE support.

Be aware that there is the twinGIG module that allows to host 2 1GE SFP ports in a 10GE bay.

Hope to help

As Giuseppe and Leo has already described, your distribution switch requirement can be met by a 24 port 3750-E or 3650-E using one of its 10 gig modules for a 10 gig port the other for twin gig SFP.

Your second requirement can't, I believe, be provided on a single switch without having some extra ports. The closest match might be either a dual stack of 24 port 3750-Es, or a 24 port 3750-E with a 24/48 port 3750(G) that has 4 SFP ports.
