    Red face L2 & L3 switches

    Can anyone confirm that if you have a layer 3 "core" switch, and all your edge switches are layer 2, are the two still able to talk/route traffic to each other?

    Yep. Your core switch should do all the routing.

    A layer 3 switch is like having a router on a stick super glued on to a switch.
