I need to replace some old 4003 switches in my regioinal offices, but due to budget restraints I'm limited on spending. I need at least 96 PoE ports for the regional office and was thinking I could afford to replace the old switch with (2) Cisco Catalyst 3560G 48 - 10/100/1000 PoE Ports + 4 SFP Ports. I would like to provide some redundancy if possible, so my question is could I use the SFP ports as way to interconnect the switchs for redundant paths back to the 2811 router that has 2 Fast Ethernet ports. Kind of like a poor man's stackwise configuration, without the stackwise technology...
Since the 2 on board ports are 10/100 copper on the 2811 as long as you don't have distance limitation it would work. You uplink each switch via one of 10/100/1000 port to your 2811. You can use the SFPs to connect the switches together. And if you want to you can bundle multiple SFPs together and build an Etherchannel.
