Need suggestions on replacing HUB / Switch Enviroment
We are in the process of looking to replace all Hubs and Switches in our Building. We have 6 floors, with each floor having a wiring closet. Would like to have each closet with a 2950 switch with 10/100 mbs and 1000 mbs uplinks. Could i use a 3750 as the core switch and connect the 2950's to the 10/100/1000 mbs ports ? Would i need to use any special wiring such as cross over to do this ?
Would like to use the 4500 or 6500 switches but cost will be an issue.
Re: Need suggestions on replacing HUB / Switch Enviroment
The 2950s will work as you want but I would suggest using fiber between the floors to reduce any latency issues - remember cat5 has a 100meter limitation to it. If you want to do something like this, I'd recommend a 4503 (depending on the number of users needed) for the first floor with a 6-port fiber GBIC module, Sup III or Sup IV for the routing feature. You are right that cost is an issue but if possible, try to convince your supervision that the benefits will outweigh the cost in the long run.
