I’m looking at deploying UC, which involves mainly IP phones. The IP phones to be used will be GE phones. These IP phones will need to be connected to POE switches.
However, I’m looking at the list of POE switches available (looking at the C2960 series switches). There is no GE switches with POE on the C2960 series.
I understand that most PC/laptop NIC is running GE speed nowadays too.
Which range of access switches should I be deploying? Can I deploy FE access switches on the GE phones? Will there be bottleneck?

Or should I go with C3560G POE switches?
