L3 Gig switch (hp/Cisco)
Posted on 2011-03-20
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).
