It's time to replace our ageing Cisco switches as we are moving to a gigabit phone system. We have been quoted for Cisco 3580 - POE 5k for a 24 port and nearly 10k for 48 port - my boss fell off his chair.

This is our network 50 users split over three office's Site 1 has break out to internet, Site 2 & 3 link via 20mb lines.

We need to split the VoIP traffic via a vlan but that is pretty simple setup I would say.

My question is do we need to 15K on Cisco switches? Can we come down the Cisco product ladder a bit? We are being advise to use tier one ie Cisco or HP - but haven't been told why? The new phone system I tested over a cheap Gigabyte NetGear and it works fine.

I need to justified to my boss why we should spend 15k - any advise would be great.

Current config is from a Cisco 2950 which isn't POE but stills works.

Any advise or suggestion would be great.

Thanks
Ian.
