    Re: Recommend me a core?

    We have two main buildings, each with a HP5308 as a core switch. We put OM3 between these buildings as that's where any future 10Gb would go. Shame the 5308's aren't due a 10Gb module!

    Have a look at HP's web-site for the throughput on switches. The 5400's are outrageously faster than the 5308's (we only bought ours 2 years ago). There may also be a limit PER MODULE, which is why 5308's do 4 x 1G-T, and 4 x 1G-SX modules - that guarantees 1Gb throughput per server/link.

    Any one out there use Single-Mode fibre?

    If any of you do decide to go for CISCO for god's sake backup your IOS and startup-config. It's always a shame when someone is configuring a switch and needs to start from scratch and accidentally kills the IOS.

    if you can afford it go for 2* HP5406zl and Dual home everything. It will remove your networks single point of failure and shound do you until around 2015 unless something else comes out. the only other option is the full blown routing switch but they are mega expensive
