3500 XL series and Layer 3 switching

Hello,

Someone knows if there is a possibility that Cisco will implement a layer 3 switching capability in the Catalyst 3500 XL series?

Thanks.

That model of switch is End of Sale/End of Life.

I know this, but it seems that new catios images are being realesed for this appliance.

The last one, version 12.0(5)WC9a was released on 20-Apr-2004.

So I've made this question.

Thanks and bye.

According to this:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps637/prod_eol_notice09186a0080146b11.html

They will continue to develop software fixes, etc. until Aug 12, 2004.

To make a L2 switch possess L3 switching functionality would require more than software. There are additional hardware components/architectural changes needed. The 3550 is the replacement model for the 3500. It has L3 functionality.

Hope this helps.
