really depends on the scenario.. for any requirement which has more than 4 uplinks, we will have to look for a 4500 or a 6500... if you want to connect 14 uplinks, you can basically look for a 4506 (withouth sup redundancy) or 4507 (which has SUP redudancy) or a new brand of 6500's which is 6504 E with SUP 32 (which will have 8 fiber ports).... featureset wise, 6500 is far superior to 4500...

hope this helps.. all the best.. rate replies if found useful..

Another alternative (inferior to 6500, but better than 4500 IMO) is a 3750 stack using the 3750G-12S.
