Cisco switch choices for 802.11n network?

We deploy 125s and lately 105s. We have been going with the WS-C3560G-24PS-S switch. 24 port 10/100/1000 with 15.4W on every port.

Anything else out there that delivers that, for less cash? 2960 family does not look to have both gig and poe in the same switch.

Thanks!

Cisco Alternative

Hi look into the Alcatel 6850 and 6400 they deliver 15.4 W on every port 10/100/1000 and cheaper than cisco the 6850 can also has 10 Gig interfaces bit extra mind you!

if you need any further info drop me a line.

We also use the WS-C3560G-24PS-S and are quite happy with it. As for Gig/PoE 2960s, I believe that there might be some due out soon.

Re: Cisco switch choices for 802.11n network?

we are currently using WS-C3560G-24PS-S switch. 24 port 10/100/1000 with 15.4W on every port as well. I would take a look at the new switches that were just announced http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps6406/data_sheet_c78-584733.html . These switches do up to 30w per port and have dual power supplies that are field replacable so are more reliable.

Thanks for the responses. My team does not actually manage the switching infrastructure here and so a non-Cisco choice is not an option.

Those new switches you mentioned in that last post, those look to be beefier and likely more expensive than what we are using?

Based on what I've been told by our Cisco reps they expect the 3750-Xs to cost less than the 3750Es and comparable to the 3750-Gs. The 3560-Xs will be less and comparable to the 3560-Gs. They also just announced the 2960-S which will be less than the 3560-X (unless you add the stacking option in which case they will be between the 3560-X and the 3750-X). The 3560/3750-X aren't going to be orderable until mid/late next month. The 2960-S models are currently orderable and shipping. (I've been told lead time is 30 days.) The 2960-S can do gigabit and PoE on the same switch.

Switch choices.

Hi, look at the nortel bes1020.

That WS-C2960S-24PS-L seems perfect. Thanks!

24 Port Gig E

The ProCurve 3500yl-24G-PWR would work. Retails for ~4K.
