Hi Friend.

Here the the few main points:

The 2950T24 and CE 500 has 8.8 GBPS switching fabric and 6.6 MPPS switching capacity while 2960-24TT has 4.4 GBPS switching fabric.

2950T24 and 296024TT both provides security features like L2/L3/L4 ACLS, Advanced QOS and other features while CE500 has limited features.

CE500 is easy to manage and configure via the GUI.

HTH, Please rate if it does.

The CE500 has no CLI, just a web interface.

HTH,

Hi Anand,

No CE500 does not have same features of 2950 and cannoot be configured with CLI at all.

You can manage it via embedded device manager or with Cisco Network Assistant.

Re: Diff. between 2950T-24/2960-24TT/CE500-24TT

The specs from post above are incorrect. They should've been:

2950T-24

8.8 Gbps / 6.6 Mpps

2960-24TT

16 Gbps / 6.5 Mpps

Also, 2950 has max 16 / 8 DRAM / Flash, while 2960 has 64 / 32.

So to answer OP's question, one big difference I see between 2950 and 2960 is the hardware archetecture.

2960s are faster and more efficient. The 48-port model is not as deep as that of 2950.

Unless you're not familiar w/ Cisco and/or CLI, I'd go w/ 2960 & 2950 instead of 500. They're for the less experienced or less demanding clients.
