We need to fit out a new building with at least 17 access switches but that will be before we've implemented Cisco DNA (could be 6-12 months). I have downloaded the list of DNA Supported devices from Cisco.com but can these switches be configured in the traditional way via CLI/IOS commands and then added to DNA Center in the future? Any differences at all?
We generally use WS-C2960X-48FPD-L for the access layer and need something identical but with future compatibility with DNA.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
9200s replace 2ks , 9300 replace 3ks and then you have the modular switches like 94,95,9600s replacing 4ks and 6k series
all 9ks are DNA capable , all down to the license you purchase
older 3ks are also DNA capable too and 4ks , havent checked 2ks as haven't purchased them recently
and yes there cli switches ,no difference than the earlier models , running same IOS-XE images ,unified
Thanks for the reply.
Looking at the 9200 series - the C9200L-48T-4X-E looks good and comes in at a similar price. But the datasheet says 'Get a simple web UI or Cisco DNA Center provisioning'... no mention of CLI. I'm getting scary flashbacks of Cisco Small Business switches... but I'm sure they have come on a lot since then.
