We were looking into using the 2960S as an access switch for a gigabit to the desk project replacing 2960 10/100 switches.

Anyone has more inside info or a rationale why the GLC-T was not tested or is not supported on this switch ?
We can't afford to go to the 3XXX switch line just to have a Cisco L2 switch with 24 10/100/1000 and 1 or 2 (UTP) gigabit uplinks.

towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are
looking for early feedback from customers befor...
