Difference between Linksys SRW224G4 & Cisco SF300-24

Hi Guys

I was wondering if there was a difference between the Linksys SRW224G4 & Cisco SF300-24 switches. Going through the support docs I see the SF300 has limited L3 functionality in terms of being able to establish static routes between VLANS. Any further information would be of use.

Also any recommendations for an equivalent switch for access layer/distribution layer use would be most welcome

Thanks

Re: Difference between Linksys SRW224G4 & Cisco SF300-24

SF300-24 is a brand new product with vast improvements over SRW224G4. Here's a few of the major ones:

1)    1) Overall Value:

-          > 80 New software features:

o   Layer 3 Routing for improved network performance where multiple VLANs are used

o   IPv6 support to protect investments as you evolve your network to the Next Generation Internet

o   Advanced VLAN Services enabling new application support (Voice VLAN, Guest VLAN, MAC-based VLAN, Protocol-based VLAN, Dynamic VLAN assignment)

o   Advanced Security – Denial of Service Attack prevention, Protected ports, Private VLAN Edge

o   Unique things to Cisco - like CDP, Auto Smartports, CCA, FindIT - deliver simplified management and autodiscovery

o   Others including Energy Efficiency, IGMP Querier, LLDP-MED, Time-based 802.1x, etc

-          Numerous hardware enhancements

o   Energy-efficient technology, helping save power and reduce costs

o   Fanless designs on many models for silent operation

o   Advanced and latest silicon with larger memory and flash footprints deliver confidence in this state of the art solution 

-          More ports per Gigabit switch. In the case of low density (10 port), equates to 25% more ports. With 24-port switches, 16% more ports

-          Very competitively priced – in most cases below comparative competitive products while delivering more capabilities

2)     2) Unique Cisco Value deliver simplified management and autodiscovery – CDP, Smartports, CCA, FindIT

3)   3) Lifetime Warranty with Next Business Day Advanced Replacement (where available) and lifetime warranty on power supplies and fans

4)     4) Localization into seven languages - English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese
