We have 2800 series routers, 4500 series chassis switches, 3560 switches, 3750 stacks...

Should Cisco networking equipment be rebooted every (whatever time frame)  ?  Or is it best to let this equipment run til it dies?  We do a lot of PoE phones and access points, I'm worried about the power supplies...   thoughts?

Let it run.

Packet Magazine used to have a contest where people would send it screenshots of the "show version" output. The one that had the longest uptime was the winner.  :-)
