Which Switches?!

Hi,

I need to find out which switches would be best for the following scenario:

1 x Core Switch - Must have 24 x 1GbE POE ports and 4 x 10Gb Fibre Uplink Ports

3 x Field Switches - Must have 24 x 1GbE POE ports and at least 1 10Gb Fibre Uplink Ports

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks.

P.S. Do Cisco have a tool for working out stuff like the above?

Hold on ... Your CORE SWITCH will need to run PoE????  Never heard of this before.

If this is correct, then you are looking at the 3850 (24 x 1 Gbps copper + 4 10 Gbps fibre). 

3 x Field Switches - Must have 24 x 1GbE POE ports and at least 1 10Gb Fibre Uplink Ports

You have several choices:

1.  2960S;

2.  3560X;

3.  3750X

Thanks for that.

Yea, core switch needs POE! It's a CCTV security switch and there's some IP cameras running back to the core.

Then 3850 it shall be.
