Switch Recommendation

I am looking at replacing our 10 Base T network with a 100MB switch solution.

Can anyone recommend a reliable switch. At the moment I am just looking for a 24 port 10/ 100 MB switch - nothing too fancy

My main concerns would be ease of installation, general maintenance and if possible network utilization.

Thanks in advance for your help

Re: Switch Recommendation

You should consider buying C2950 if you only need Layer2 functionality. If you think you will need routing functionality then perhaps C3550 is a resonable choice.

Re: Switch Recommendation

Thanks for the quick replies and links

There are a few models in the 2950 series which I have narrowed down to :-

CISNA024TN (WS-C2950T-24)

CISNA024TM (WS-C2950-24 )

Or Should I be looking at the 2950G range?

Re: Switch Recommendation

Well, according to your first post, I'll choose WS-C2950-24. Switches 2950-T and 2950G have Gigabit uplink ports and Enhanced Image software. So, unless you are planning to place a Gigabit Eth backbone in the future or require special features such advanced QoS, high avalaibility, etc. you shouldn't choose others.

I think you also should ask for prices.

Bit of a jump in price on the 2950G range!!

Would the extra features of the 2950-T give us a little more "future proofing" or will it only cause more problems on setup?
