Nortel 5520 switch

    Hi,

I have a customer that wants to change their Nortel 5520 switches to a Cisco solution, and I wanted to ask what would be a good solution for this customer. presently they have 4 48 port PoE and 2 24 port PoE stackable 5520, and they are interested in redundant power supplies for the switches. I was thinking that the 3750 is good for this site but I would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks

Eddie,

The 3750X series has both stacking and capability for power redundancy.

Eddie,

Also depending on whether the 5520s are Layer3 or layer2.

You may be able to reduce costs if layer2 only by looking at the 2960 series

Unfortunately, the 2960S does not have redundant power supplies.
