Cat 3550 - Routing

I have 2 seperate networks i.e. Voice, Data

I want to give the certain workstations access to the Voice network.

Can a Cat3550 route between these networks?

if not do i need to get a router?

Re: Cat 3550 - Routing

The cat3550 can route between vlans. See the following configuration guide. Also, your routing capabilities (eg, protocols) depends on the software you use SMI vs EMI.

Re: Cat 3550 - Routing

You can route between VLAN's if you have a 3550 EMI. The SMI does not have all the layer 3 commands and features like the EMI.

Common misconception but not true. ALL 3550 switches are layer3 with routing capability. The EMI has more routing protocols.
