Depends on what's the switch is licensed for now (show license).


If its licensed for IPBase, either will work.


If its licensed for IPServices, you'll want the universal license.


The only "advantage" of the IPBase image, it's physically smaller than the universal image.


PS:

For just static routing, you only need the IPBase license.

Amit,


Please see this extract from link:-

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750x_3560x/software/release/15.0_2_se/release/notes/OL25302.html#wp754685

Deciding Which Files to Use

If you have a service support contract and order a software license or if you order a switch, you receive the universal software image and a specific software license. If you do not have a service support contract, such as a SMARTnet contract, download the IP base image from Cisco.com. For Catalyst 3750-X and 3560-X switches, this image has the IP base and LAN base feature sets. For Catalyst 3750-E and 3560-E switches, this image has the IP base feature set.



Regards,
Alex.
