2960G TC-L Uplinking

Hello all,

I'm in the process of deciding which switches would be best for current performance and future growth.

Right now we're using 3com 4400 48-ports. They are cascaded to each other.

My questions are;

1) What is better. Cascade stacking switches or Uplink stacking switches.

2) Is it possible to buy a cascade module for the 2960G?

3) Is there another 48-port, giga switch that would be better?

I know these questions are somewhat general, but if there's anyone experienced in Cisco Switched LAN's with enough time to answer, thank you!

Nevermind, I found my answer.

The 2960G is not stackable via the backplane.

The 3750 IS stackable via the backplane and provides easier management by creating a single logical switch and also supports advanced redundancy and a whopping 32Gbps throughput to other switches on the stack.

There also the even newer 3750-E.

Improvements include 2x ring speed.

Smarter ring traffic managment.

Dual 10 gig module slots.

Full wire speed for 48 gig copper and dual 10 gig.

Can be stacked with earlier 3750 series, although some improvements lost.
