Any extra power supply or power redundancy on cat 2960 switches?

Hi, I need to provide a small, but reliable 1000MB switch to connect two mainframes network adapters (intracommunication).

Since power supplies are a common point of failure in switch, is there anything I could do to offer redundant power supplies on such Catalyst 2960G-8TC switch?

Cisco Catalyst 2960G-8TC Compact Switch

Hi Friend,

Cisco RPS 675 and 300 would have been a good option but Catalyst 2960-8TC and 2960G-8TC switches do not have an RPS connector.

On the other hand these RPS 300 are EOS and RPS 675 will be EOS by October 15, 2007.
