I'm planning a new LAN in a new office:
- Over 80 users
- Data LAN + voIP (so i need POE).
- I need Layer 3 in a distibution/core: i would like a stack with layer 3.
- I want EtherChannels between access layer and distibution/core layer.
- Floor: 1200 square metres
I've been reading and thinking...
1) access switches:
I'm thinking in 24-port POE. I don't know if 10/100 or 10/100/1000. I will need several switches, 8 maybe
2975 is very expensive (so don't think in switches above of this one)
2960 may be the chosen.
or esw 500 series switches small business pro??
What do yo think is better in this case, 2960 or ESW 500 series switches small business pro? Any other?
2) distibution/core switch:
I would like a stack of two 3750-E. These are expensive. The question: i want a stack, and i want layer 3: any alternative cheaper than 3750-E?
Thanks for your answers.
