We have a customer with enterprise level needs but budget constraints. Currently they have a datacenter that consists of stacked 3524 switches No jokes please). They are looking at purchasing some used 6513 chassis along with some Sup1 or Sup2 engines. They are looking at throwing a firewall module in along with an IPS module. They are hellbent on the 6513s. Can anyone help me with arguments against this route or even for this route if it is valid. They do plan to upgrade the Sups at some point.
Thanks in advance! All replies rated.
