Backbone Switches!!!

Hi allz!

We r gonna change our network infrastructure. I need ur valuable helps and recommendations on selecting backbone switches.

Here is our system...

13 Servers including Database, Application, Web, Terminal,...

about 750 employees. There will be also internet users who will access to database.

We r planning put switches in 3 levels as Cisco recommends. Access, Distribution, Backbone...

According to this plan we r gonna use;

2950 on Access Level

3560 and 3750 on Distribution

and

for Backbone switch Im a little bit confused.

We have some 3750G-24TS-E switches. What do u guys think about puttin one of these switches as Backbone? Can they handle?

Actually im thinking about using of 4500 series. I dont have any experience with them and im not sure they are better than 3750?

Thanks for any recommendations and helps...

Re: Backbone Switches!!!

Hi Ahmet,

I feel the 4500 series will be a ideal choice if ur organisation size fall under small or medium but if it is so large capacity as far as the processing and traffic is considered, better go for Catalyst 6500.

Go thro,

Rate if it does,
