Re: [OT] Recommendation for a bigger Switch
Another vendor you must check is 3Com, you may stack, say, 24 port
gigabit (10/100/1000) and 48 port 10/100 switch.
AFAIK, Hp Procurve used to have Cisco written software. Haven't seen
recently, but surely they still have it. Good and not over expensive
one. Linksys - again afaik - is kinda Cisco owned now.
PS you will spend some thousands, that's for sure. the point is, how
much thousands you will. don't jump on the cheapest, or you'll get a
gigabit.. but only as negotiated speed.

Perhaps take a look at
(24 and 48 x 10/100/1000 ports)
I need to be able to plug something like 40 ethernet ports (2 for each
servers), and be able to set bandwidth cap on a group of ethernet ports.
I need the switch to be fully gigabit for at least 1/2 of the ethernet
ports (the other half will be used only to plug a KVM over LAN port, and
they can run at 100 Mbits, it doesn't matter). So I think that a 48
ports switch would do. It also have to be in a 1U case.
If you have another spare U, you could save money by purchasing 2
2810-24 24 x 10/100/1000
2626 24 x 10/100
Of course, price DOES matter, I don't need any other features than the
one written above. I do not wish to spend thousands in some Cisco product.
You should find those prices in France:
2810-24 ~ 1000 EUR HT
2810-48 ~ 1700 EUR HT
2626 ~ 400 EUR HT
