To Stack or Not To Stack
Posted on 2011-10-19
I don't handle any of the network gear at my work, only the Voip equipment. While talking over a new network design with one of the "network" guys for a new location, I asked him why he isn't just stacking the 3750s and 2960s that are going into the location. He never answered me, despite all the switches ordered are the stackable kind. I cannot think of any technical reasons to NOT stack them, but it isn't really my forte (despite doing so in a previous position).
Can anyone think of any technical reasons (i.e. Cons) to stacking these switches? Or possible a best practice from Cisco showing they prefer stacking/no stacking them?
Thanks for helping my understanding of this!!!
