    Re: New fiber backbone and switches brainstorm with me!!!

    Hi Guys,

    Remember that you can aggregate the traffic by using two ports so say from your core switch to your distribution switches you want to have redudancy and at the same time have 2Gb uplink rather than just 1Gb configure the port to be trunk and use PAgP or Etherchannel or GigabitChannel to combine the two physical links into 1 thereby adding redudancy as well as better throughput. This will give you true 2Gb or if you want to be really flash 4Gb in a full duplex mode.

    I think this kind of setup is required is you got many switches that hang of or cacades of the distribution switch.

    I haven't got any experience of HP Procurves but we use Cisco switches here and it offers all the functionality of spanning tree, vlans, port trunking and aggregating ports etc.

    The 3550 or 3560 with miniGBICs would be ideal for a distribution switch. For core Catalyst 4506 (64Gb fabric) or 6509E (up to 720Gb fabric) would be ideal.

    HTH,

    Ashok.
