Re: Replacing 3 com equipment with Cisco

coreBuilder 3500 - replace with Cisco 3800 series routers

see this link: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5855/index.html

coreBuilder 9000 - replace with Cisco 4500 or 6500 series L3 switches

see these links:

4500 - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps4324/index.html

6500 - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/index.html

pathBuilder 600 - replace with Cisco 2800 series router (or smaller depending on needs)

see this link: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5854/index.html

there may be more 'granular' options, depending on your true needs, but these are very good replacements for the 3Com products.
