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.

I do as well need some help in purchasing a switch, but mine would be

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
switchs :

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

Contact me in private if you want more price/resellers details.
