Cisco switches family becomes bigger and bigger. There are at least 7 series in Catalyst family, such as Catalyst 3850, Catalyst 9300, Catalyst 9500, etc.
How to find the right one to meet our need?
Today, we’d like to introduce you a tool from Router-switch.com, the Switch Selector.
To have a try, please click this image:
This switch selector provides 8 options, like switch brands, switch management, ports count, uplink, etc.
Take an example, we now want to find a switch that provides 24 PoE ports, LAN base and stackable function.
Just check the options:
We can find there are 23 models meeting our need. Now we can only make a choice in these switches. Want a cheaper one? We can select the Catalyst 2960+ models. Want a more powerful one? Select the Catalyst 3850+ models!
