cheap switch with 24 or 48 ports plus 2 Gb wired with SNMP


Hello,

Im looking for a CHEAP rack switch with 24 or 48 ports 100Mbit and 2 Gb connections utp connections

The switch must have SNMP and vlans if possible.

we need to measure the bandwith usage thru snmp per port.

i love the cisco 3550 but that is to much of my budget so anyone with cheaper suggestions.


thnx

Nortel
Lucent
HP (Hear they are coming out with cheap switches.)
Dell (Hear they have cheap switches.)
Netgear
Linksys
Ect.

You just need to look around and find somethnig that you like or will work.

Or you could look at Juniper and get ready to pay an arm and both your legs for one of those switches or routers.

problem is i need SNMP information about bandwith for ech port.
i worked with cisco catalyst 3500 series and they have it.

But i found a used one 3524 vor 429 euros ex vat i think this is the best option
is has 250 Vlans etc

Linksys doesnt have SNMP btw (and its cisco ;-)> )

The HP ProCurve 2650 is a good choice I use them , they not as cheap as the second hand cisco but you get a life time guaranty.

I also gotta recommend the HP Procurve. I use 2626 and 2626-PWR's and they rock.

I think we paid about $500 for the 2626's.
