New wired network - opinions welcome
I'm soon going to replace my current wired network with a new solution. Every active piece of kit in the backbone will come out and be replaced.
I've currently got:
2 x 24 fibre port core switches
32 x 48 10/100/1000 Mbps port + 4 fibre port edge switches in 13 stacks of 1, 2, 3 or 4 switches.
I intend to keep the same topology. All switches are POE on every port, but I could reduce this down to 1 switch per stack. As you might expect, we make use of VLANs. I also want a system that gives good management information to a centralised console, so either one that has a decent piece of bespoke management software or provides good SNMP information for a standard piece of software.
Your opinions are welcome please, particuarly if you have recently upgraded / replaced your network.
