Re: how to select switch on basis of badwidth etc...

The conditions you given are not enough to put available solution,if you can get more detail to below question:

1.which network you want to implement for the users?WAN?LAN? For WAN,router and firewall will be considered;for LAN,which Level you would like to apply to?Level 3 core switch with Level 2 distribution switch will be considered.

2.Thinking of your network is L3 with core switch,Cisco 6500 series and 3750 series are the VLAN design mode for applying VLAN to L2 switches,2960 series can be the L2 distribution and access switch.

You should give more detail design request to make the answer more available.....

Please go and get more information.  Is this for core, distribution or access switch?  No one will ask this question for an access switch.

let's i take example i want to design network for 1000users
next for 1500 users
next for 2000 users

PoE?  Gig or not?  10Gb uplinks?  Access, distro or core switching?  How many servers?
