I have Cisco phone system. It's been running here for the last five years. At that time, I was buying 3550 POE switches for my remote offices to support the phones. The 2900 series had no POE support.
The 2900 series is now offered in a a POE version. I'm considering the perchase of these as the company grows. What will I be giving up besides the layer three functionality? Would you go with a 3560 or 2960 and why?
One thing i would say is that L3 functionality can be very useful even extended to the access-layer. Obviously you need to balance this against the cost difference but the 3560 gives you more flexibility in the future.
I think you have kind of answered it . Do you need layer 3 and do you think in the future you would need the added bandwidth a 3560 woudl give you . If its a smaller install then the 2960 would probably work fine , if you want added bandwidth with a stackable layer 2 solution then the 2975 which is a stackable layer 2 48 port 10/100/1000 POE switch . this gives you 3750 stackability in a layer 2 switch along with 48 POE ports. The 3560 and 2960-75 series basically have the same qos features I believe but you would have to read the spec sheet.
