    As above take a look at ProCurve as it's well priced, well spec'd, mostly standards based and amazing reliability.

    Our UK network currently has ~30k ProCurve edge ports along with numerous core switches that tie it all together and we can't fault it, the switches very rarely fail (although they don't like water as we once found out....). Also, firmware updates are free so on the majority of kit there's no support contract to pay unlike with Cisco. I'm not a fan of 3Com kit, can't get on with the awful CLI.

  2. Thanks to funkymunky from:

    Haha no

    It's across ~70 sites at the moment that all connect through our core, will be up to 40k-45k ports this summer. We're an ISP, hence the high port count!

    Cheers Funky - nice to know I made the right choice and 500 ports can scale just a bit if needed
