I currently have a Cisco SG350-10 and am looking to get another Cisco switch for my home network, and just saw that Cisco has a Catalyst line that's priced around the same. I have looked at the Data Sheets and my takeaways are that they have a very similar feature set, but I like the appeal of a full blown IOS instead of a watered down one on the SG350-10. I also know that the there is a difference between Catalyst WS-C2960L-SM-8TS and WS-C2960L-8TS-LL. The WS-C2960L-8TS-LL seems to have a more configurable Lan Lite image that allows CLI configuration, from what I read, than the Smart Managed counterpart WS-C2960L-SM-8TS.
Do you know the biggest differences or a direct comparison between the specs and capabilities between the SG350-10 and the WS-C2960L-SM-8TS or WS-C2960L-8TS-LL?
Some Comparisons I made between the two lines were:
As you have found, the SG350 and the 2960L have very simular feature/functions. The main difference is the SG350 is purpose built to be easy to manage via the web GUI. If you prefer the IOS CLI, then the 2690L is a good choice. The SG350 does include 1 full year of small business TAC support. No contracts required for the TAC support or OS upgrades on the SG350.
