Catalyst 3560 vs Catalyst 3750

I need at least a 12 port 10/100/1000 and a 48 port non-POE 10/100/1000 switch that support

unicast and multicast. I'm not sure if a 3560 model or a 3750 model would be better. Does someone know the main differences between the two? This in in a school enviroment.

Thanks

Dave

Re: Catalyst 3560 vs Catalyst 3750

For me, 3560 is newer and more cost-effective model. Both of two series can fulfill such port requirement but 3560 is cheaper, unless you have policy to use 3750, otherwise, I will prefer 3560.

Below is the product info. of both sw :

And you can use the switch solution finder to select the right one. But I can't access it, I don't know it is my PC problem or the web problem. Please try it.

Hope this helps.

Dave,

The only difference between a 3560 and 3750 is, the 3750 has stacking and the 3560 doesnt. Other than that, they are both the same box.

Let me know if it helps.

Regards,

Arul

Thanks. Arul. I never consider this as the difference.

Re: Catalyst 3560 vs Catalyst 3750

I think that the main difference is the presence of the 32Gb stack bus in the 3750.

if you connect several 3750 switches together (upto 9 using Cisco StackWise Stacking Cable), they will operate like the single device.

Thanks for all the replies.

That answers my question. They only need the 3560.
