We are going through a tech refresh and need to retire several 2950's (10/100) switches,

We need to go to a 10/100/1000 switch that has layer 2 capabilities. We are also upgrading our firewalls to ASA 5550 so

we are using Sub interfaces (VLANS) our data center has about 10 racks with 60 Sun Servers and 30 Dell Servers with a total

of 60 TB san storage. we also have a total of about 80 workstations. We also use Port Security sticky macs.


I am thinking about either the WS-C3560X-48T or the WS-C3750X-48T Lan Based switches.

any Recommendations, ideas or questions?

Try 2960S.  The "D" suffix supports 10Gb.

I thought that the 2960's were End of Life ?

Nope.  They have a new lease in life.  The 2940/2950/2955/2970 are end-of-life.


2900XL/3500XL models are end-of-history.
