currently have 85 users scaling up to 130 users with an interal SIP(VoIP) solution being implemented.
Need to replace our switching hardware to offer PoE for the sip phones... the VLAN/QoS requirement should be common on most Cisco switches I would assume, though any specific IOS versions to ensure this is desired.
Looking at 30-40 of the users being on one floor (7th), and the balance being on another floor (3rd). Network/server room is on the 7th floor, though we can locate switching equipment on the 3rd.
Currently considering a 3560 or 3570 on the 7th floor (48 port for the 30-40 up there) and two additional 3560 or 3570's on the 3rd floor (2x48 port for the 55-90 down there). Would also assume some sort of fibre modules/cables in the GBIC expansion ports for switch backbone commnunication.
Looking for someone current on Cisco hardware to recommend the switch, interconnecting hardware, and any specific IOS recommendations if required.
Thanks in advance.
