Re: Cisco Certs. 2950 SI or EI
What else do you have?
Yes, you can get away with a 2950-SI. A 2950-EI is better. To do
absolutely everything mentioned in BCMSN, you need a pair of 3550-EMIs,
which is $5k+ out of your pocket.
I used a stock 2950-24 SI for my BCMSN, and it did most of what I
needed. I also had a Cisco 2611XM with two FE ports which I put into
bridging mode which allowed me to do most of the spanning tree stuff,
including moving the root-bridge around, and most of the trunking
If you have the cash, buy the best you can afford, but you will get to
a point of diminishing returns. Personally, I'd pick up a pair of
2950s, including 0,1 or 2 EIs depending on your budget, and if you need
hands-on for the L3 stuff, look at an online rental lab.
