Hi Experts. My network currently consists of one layer 3 switch which does the routing on my network. And approx 6 layer 2 switches for end points. Currently all are Allied switches. We need to add another 48 port switch to our network. The question is if I add another layer 3 switch from a different manufacturer... for example juniper will I have issues? What I mean is VLAN configurations standard between manufactures so if I have 4 or 5 VLAN's now and create on the new switch is it all compatible? Also does introducing another layer 3 switch complicate things? Or will it be the same as long as I don't configure routing on the new switch?
Sorry if that does not make complete sense describing my questions as best I can.
