In our data center I currently have Dell Force 10 core switches and a Cisco 4506e chassis with 4 48 port modules in it. I am using 161 ports in the 4506 chassis. While no EOL has been determined on the 4506 chassis I am looking to replace it since it is approaching ten years old. This used to be a core switch until the Force 10 switches were installed two years ago. The core switch is also the VTP server for the environment. If it helps, I am considering the 4506e to be a hybrid switch (distribution and access) since it has trunk ports to other smaller access switches in the building plus regular ports on various VLANs for hosts. Looking for some suggestions for a Cisco switch setup that can handle 192 connections (leaves me wiggle room) and possibly budget friendly. All of our other access switches in the building are Cisco 2960 48 port with a couple of locations being a stacked pair.
