    I've looked at the Chassis and they are way out of our price league - although theres a 2 year old one on ebay for 26!

    I need around 40 1gb fiber links and 30 coppers.

    You just said you had about 12-13k budget? A 5406zl with 48 gigabit PoE ports comes in at about 5000, add in 2 24port gbic modules, and the price comes to 9750 ish. The problem will be your gbics, which at normal pricing come in at about 190 a piece. But buying 40 of them you should be able to reduce that price. Not to mention, if you speak to a HP reseller, you should be able to 'bundle' all of that and most likely come within that budget price.

    Currently looking at this

    HP E5406-ZL with 44 Copper ports link this (with premium edge license)
    HP E5406-44G-PoE+/4G-SFP v2 zl Switch with Premium Software (J9539A) specifications - HP Small & Medium Business products
    2 x HP 24 Port Mini-Gbic Zl module
    http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en...64274-4179423-
    64274-4295178-1839938-1839941.html
    1 x power supply for chassis
    HP 875W zl Power Supply (J8712A) specifications - HP Small & Medium Business products

    Can then get second power supply for redundancy when more money is available.

    36 x SFP transceivers

    I've just been for a count up as 40 was an estimate i had earlier its now down to 36 so that saves around 1k.

    Try contacting an HP reseller, such as CSE and see what they can do for a bundle. They can usually knock a good number off the price when you do that.

    We have a pair of these, one in each server room linked with a 10gbps fibre. They have never let us down and deal with teaming extremely well...

    I'm currently talking with A few plus my local supplier who tends to when it gets to big money items jump at the chance and tends to beat the big suppliers.

    Also talking to 3 HP resellers.

    Just double checking - it was the part at the bottom which said the model had to end with B which made me question it!

    We use Enterasys Enterasys - A Siemens Enterprise Communications Company for all our wired and wireless. Were a fraction of the cost of HP/Cisco and have served us great.
