I have this case study in school and we are tasked to build a network in a school. So we've decided to use the three layer hierarchical model. I'm not sure about what switch is best for these layers but I've decided that I'll use 3750 for the Access layer, 4500E for the Distribution layer, 6500 for the Core layer. Are these the ideal switches for each layer? If not, could you suggest any switch that is better than the current? Need your suggestions or thoughts about this. Thanks in advance!
Hi Seb, thanks for replying. My groupmates and I have already decided that we're going to have a distribution layer. So basically, is 3750 enough to be the backbone/core of the network? We're configuring the to have a Layer 3 design so that makes me choose on 3750 on distrib and core rathen than 2960 switches cause I think that's better than Layer 2 though I don't know specifically what makes it better. Do you know? So I could have a thorough explanation when I present it to my professor. As for the budget, the case study didn't give us any limit so I think layer 3 would be a better choice than layer 3. Thanks Sib, appreciate it.
