    @SYNACK:

    My core switch is an old 3550 12G which has been superb throughout its life, all the edge switches are either 3550 catalyst 48 port with 2 Gbic upload to the core or 3560 catalyst 48 port all have the enhanced IOS which gives access to all the Cisco protocol goodies which deliver great service. Coupled with OM3 fibre it has even allowed us to hang our 30 CCTV cameras off it (At a cost of 10Mb bandwith) but with no detriment to the LAN.

    Great kit but I do feel the future for our school is Juniper.

    Yea, great equipment that lasts forevery but we're going hp now for new stuff. Would consider Juniper but it is yet another brand with zero supply chain and support - comparitivly - here in NZ so not even worth consideration.

    Awww baby core EX4200's x4 here (one is the 24port fibre the other 3 are the 48 port copper with 10G links) very shiny kit, I know that @Soulfish misses his even bigger core that was stacked with linecards but had more 0's than my keyboard will let me type in the time to finish this post....

    Yes the EX2200's are only baby's BUT fantastic bits of kit, I imagine the 4200's to be even better than the 22's but the 22's are amazing!

    I do miss my twin EX8200's :'( The cisco 4500's just aren't comparable :'(.

    Having two EX8200's linked with VRRP was very very cool. Being able to reboot one and watch everything failover to the alternative with perhaps 1 or 2 loss of pings was great . Did have a few 0's in the price, but not as many as you may think with the discounts we got given

    I'm sure your place robbed a bank to get them EX8200s, although the deal for our Juniper was also brilliant the whole package was excellent value full credit to Mark Power @Net-Ctrl for that one I think EX8200s are a bit too much OTT for schools though

    Not at the price we were paying .

    At normal pricing I'd agree 110%.

    For most a stack of EX4200/4500's will give what's needed...but I think we're a bit OT now
