The Cisco web site is hard to understand for someone who is kinda new to the job.
What is the difference between the  C3750 IPBASE and C3750 Universal switches.
Thanks!

The universal licensing model is a single IOS image that is capable of supporting all the features that previously required a specific IOS image. So instead of different IOS images like IP Base, IP Enterprise, etc., now you just have one IOS image.

But to use a feature, you now have to purchase and install a license before you can use that feature.

Universal image is an image that comes with new devices or devices that you may want to expand on their capability, based on your individual need. After you determine the need, you then purchase a license i.e. IP Base IP Services etc.,

For example the IP-Base can run static route, RIP and EIGRP stub. However, if you need to run OSPF, BGP etc.. you need IP services which are contained in the Universal Image.

Thanks.  Very useful info.
Just out of curiosity. How much more does the Universal license cost versus the IPbase?

There is no "universal license".  IIRC, there is an IP Base License and an IP Services license.

You would have to contact Cisco for pricing since the cost is dependent on your organization's relationship with Cisco.

There is no IP Base, IP Services "image".  There is only a universal image.  You activate the IP Base or IP Services features by purchasing a license.

So if you buy a 3750, you get the Universal image with LAN Base license.  If you want more features, you buy a license.

Part numbers: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/catalyst-3560-x-series-switches/white_paper_c11-579326.html

Tables 1, 2 and 3 show the part numbers for the upgrades.  Just take the one for you switch model and google it.  You will get some hits from CDW, Provantage, etc. that will show some pricing.
