ccie security switch 3750x vs 3750

6 posts in this topic

I'm planning to study for ccie security v4.0. I'm thinking to use gns3 with real switches. Cisco equipment list mentioned 3560 and 3750x the last is very expensive, I found used 3750 (not X) on ebay cheap . Is 3750 will be fine instead of 3750x. Another quesstion, How many switches do I need?

4 or 5; u can get away with 4; X- comes with license and ios 15; not sure if u really need it; regular should be fine; only few models of c3560 can be upgraded to 15.

according to INE; u can get E or X ; I know X are too $ but what about E versions? They also said that 80% of lab does not need switching at all;

Actually, I'm on a very tight budget, I found the E used on ebay around 470$ to 600$, so 4 items would be around 2500$.

If there is a switch that will work for the lab and its around 100$ to 150$ it would be fine.

 

Thanks.

since u doing Security track; i would look into rent-a-rack for those features that are not supported by c3560. .
