Basic Configuration: Cisco Catalyst

Please I have as many as 60 or so devices that i want to put on a new network.

What I want to know is what is the lowest range of Cisco Switch with L3 facility and/or supervisor card redundancy that will allow me do this. The devices will be placed into VLANS so I do need L3. There are no big core switches.

Thanks

Few layer 3 switches I can think of

CAT4503---One Supervisor module and 2 slots for 48-port fast ethernet modules.

CAT4507R--Has option for redundant Supervisor engine and 5 slots for other line cards

CAT3550-48-EMI--A pizza box with 48 fastethernet ports

You can find more info at

Re: Basic Configuration: Cisco Catalyst

Sorry one more question:

Can this stand as a standalone that is no core router or anything but just 2 or 3 x CAT3550-48-EMI-- on its own serving a full working branch ?

Re: Basic Configuration: Cisco Catalyst

The 3550 is a L2/L3 switch, so you can use it 'alone' without any external routers. How big will your network be (number of stations) ?

About 60 devices eventually.

Thank you very much.
