3560G Model alternative

3560G Model alternative

Hi everyone,
Just a simple question. I need to buy a 24 port, layer 3 switch to replace my 3560G, we dont need any special features like wireless controler etc, just the ip services.
What new model are the best to buy?


RE: 3560G Model alternative

Current model wise to get the same features you would need a 3560X (WS-C3560X-24T-E), however Cisco want you to move to the 3850/3650 range and have priced them the same if I recall correctly - i.e. a non-PoE 24-port 3560X with IP Services license will be the same price as a non-PoE 24-port 3650 with IP Services license. Configuration wise they are very similar, but there are differences - QoS for example is completely different between the two platforms - the 3650 looking more like a Router.

RE: 3560G Model alternative

I recently rolled out 98 of the 48 port 3850s in the access layer. Generally happy with them. Had a couple of issues with stack sizes on an earlier version of IOS-XE but sorted now. Been pretty stable and only had to RMA 1 of them due to a fault.

Thanks for the suggestions, have a great Holidays.
