Core switches for DR site and DC site

Hello Guys,

 

I am looking for a suggestion for 24 Ports 10 GB switch as a Core switch. We are a small manufacturing company not hosting anything else than web servers. Everything else local servers.  

 

Thanks,

Hello

You don’t state if you have any on-site IT staff or not but if your looking for a L3 switch with 10gb port capacity and to easy manage ,scalable and not as expensive as the new cat9ks suggest possibly look at the meraki cloud switch’s

Hello,

 

the C9300-24UX would be an option, it has 24 modular Multigigabit Cisco UPOE (100M, 1G, 2.5G, 5G, or 10 Gbps) ports. Have a look at the datasheet for the Catalyst 9300 series below:

Hello @paul driver  

 

We are looking for a fully Manageable switch which can also be utilized as PE in the MPLS scenario.

I work with 3850s which have large variety of selection. mostly for distribution and access layers but check product site for core level.  

otherwise, I agree with posts above regarding Catalyst 9300

Copper or fibre?

Hello @Leo Laohoo  @Georg Pauwen  @paul driver  @MartinLo  ,

 

It will be copper, the regular ethernet connections.  I don't see any 24 port switch with all 10 GB ports. please suggest?

For future reference you can use below URL in order to know which you need to purchase.
