Gigabit Ethernet to the Desk??

Hi,

I'm currently working on a project for a new building going up at our college. I've been looking everywhere to find Gigabit Ethernet switches. Right now on campus we have 3com 24port 10/100 3300 series switches. I was looking for something similar but all I've come across are modular switches. Does Cisco make anything non-modular in a Gigabit Switch or should I move to modular switch? I was hopping to find a switch that has 24 or 48 10/100/1000 ports. Also what type of cabling should I use? I'm hopping to use CAT5.

The new building will be two floors and a total of 50,000Sqft. Initially there will be about 300 computers in the building.

Thanks for all the help,

Kevin Keithan

Re: Gigabit Ethernet to the Desk??

With that density requirement you might look into the 4000 series or higher switches. The 4000 offers a 48 port 10/100/1000BaseTX module (WS-X4448-GB-RJ45 ) that might meet your requirements.

Here is some more information on them:

Here is one on the module support on the 4000 series as well:

Hope this helps you,

Don
