I have a total of 4 buildings and ultimately will have approximately 600-750 devices connected to my network. Currently I have SGE2010's and SGE2000p's installed at the edge and a stack of 3 SGE2010's serving as the core switch. The core and edges are connected with LC GBic cards and Multi-mode fiber runs. I am having some problems with the scalabilty of the core switch as I will require additional fiber runs and would like advice on what unit to purchase. We are a school in it's second year and funding is very tight- hence the SGE's. I need something that will allow 48 fiber ports with the ability to grow. I would want to be able to stack an additional switch and manage the two as a single unit. The solution needs to be able to function with the current SGE2000/2010's that are deployed at the edge. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
