L3 Gig switch (hp/Cisco)

Hi,

I have a requirement to route two subnets with gig ethernet.

I was looking at the hp E2615-8-PoE switch which according to the spec sheets has gig and is a layer 3 switch.

Can anybody confirm if the switch can do Layer3 on the gig ports? If not, can it do layer 3 on the Fast Ethernet ports? I have a number of Layer2 switches so I don't really need that many ports, just enough to connect the switches to the 3 subnets... (the hp 8 port would be enough)

I am open to other solutions other than L3 switches.

My budget is about $1000, so anything Cisco seems out of the question.
What I require is the ability to configure 3 IP ranges for three separate VLAN's. Ideally, two of them would be Gig but its not necessary (L3 Fastethernet is good enough, but gig would be nice).

Good morning,

Layer 3 switches are usually the cheapest way to route with a decent number of ports.

The E2615 that you mentioned has 8x 10/100 ports and 2 Gig ports (which can be fiber or copper). It will do layer 3 with whichever ports you need it to - you have to configure VLAN Interfaces (which are the layer 3 interfaces) and attribute the VLANs to the ports that you want on that Layer 3 subnet. (important: this only supports IPv4 Layer 3 static and RIP).

If you are looking for a full 10/100/1000 8 port layer 3 switch HP also has the E2915-8-PoE which has the same features but is all Gig. IF you ever plan on expanding, this might be a better option.

Good luck

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

In the configuration you describe, your budget should allow you to deploy a Cisco L3 switch at the core.  Here are a couple of options with the part numbers in brackets:

Cisco Catalyst 3560V2-24TS switch (WS-C3560V2-24TS)
This 24 port L3 managed switch is at the top end of your budget.  It gives you 24 10/100 ports and 2 gigabit uplink ports.  The uplink ports are SFP ports, so you will need a transceiver (either fibre or copper) to be able to use these to connect your L2 switches at gigabit speed.

Cisco Catalyst 3560-8PCS switch (WS-C3560-8PC-S) or Catalyst 3560-12PCS (WS-C3560-12PC-S)
These 8 or 12 port 10/100, L3 managed switches are well within budget.  They have a single gigabit uplink port

The first option has 2 gigabit uplink ports, so you could connect two of your segments at gigabit speed.

I hope this points you in the right direction.  All of the switches I have recommended are in the Cisco Catalyst 3560 family and can be viewed on the Cisco website at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps5528/index.html

The other thing he is wanting to know, is will it router traffic between vlans at wire speed = vlan to vlan @ 100mbit and or vlan to vlan @ 1000mbit.

Is POE a requirement?
