Standard or Enhanced image

Hello,

When I order a new switch I get asked if we want the standard or enhanced image, what is the difference?  I though I could just download the enhanced image and install?  Unless it means the Enhanced switch will have more memory and flash space.

Thanks

Re: Standard or Enhanced image

Standard image comes with IP base which provides Layer 2 and Layer 3 stub functionality

Enhanced Image come with IP services which provides complete layer-3 functionality.

You can't just download and install a enhanced image, it requires IP services license which costs around $4000 to $8000 based on the switch model and the discount you get.
