Does anyone have experience with the new 3650 switches? I am looking for anything positive or negative. I hear there are stack issues?

There are no 3650s, however there are 3560s but not stack able.

Or are you refering to the new 3850?

No, I am referring to the 3650 (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps13133/index.html). It begain shipping in October. It is similar to the 3850 but is to be the replacement of the 3560.

I see. Thanks for the link (+5)

Cisco is jumping all over the place.

Going from 3750-X to 3850 made sense, but going from 3560 to 3650 makes no sense to me.

I haven't had the chance to deploy any yet. There is a Cisco Live presentation at ciscolive365.com on the architecture:

BRKARC-3438 - Cisco Catalyst 3850 and 3650 Series Switching Architecture (2014 Milan) - 90 Mins

Some positive things compared to 3560/3750.

  • Runs IOS XE
  • Uses MQC for QoS
  • 4x 10GE on 48 port version

Well, I would agrue about the 3650 replacing the 3560 being a good idea. I talked to someone back in June familiar with the product and the idea is that you get the same functionality as the 3850, just less performance. And the 3650 is priced the same as the 3650. So if you don't need the horsepower, you can save 25%.

The problem I am hearing about is that the stack technology is extremely unreliable. So I would love to hear from someone who has experience with it.
