    Default CCNP SWITCH hardware

    Hi,

    Looking for recommendations for switch hardware. I already have some 3550's and would like to upgrade to 3750's but in the UK its slim pickings. Just wondering if any other switch model will be suitable to cover all topics. I'm a little behind with GNS3 but is it now a viable option for SWITCH ?

    Thanks for any info

    Luke

    Buy two 3560s (not POE), and two 2960s, and about 30 50cm patch cables. Upgrade to IOS 15. Pretty sure that GNS3 will continue to be a no-go for SWITCH because of the need for CEF and the deeper dive into very Cisco specific technologies.

    Something like this would do the job.

    GNS3 works fine for switching (SWITCH exam). L2 IOU images can now do a LOT of what's on the exam blueprint.
