I read a lot about Network Design. But right now I'm a bit confused what is the 'right' way...
Assume I would like to re-design a network with two core/distribution (6509 SUP2 and 6506 SUP2) switches (there is no distribution level) an about 50 access switche (3550, 2950..)
Actual the CATs are running CatOS and have only L2 etherchannel between them. First I would like to upgrade to IOS and I should add an 10GB Link (Channel) two a datacenter Switch. Is it ok to run this with a SUP2 or should I upgrade to SUP720 ? Also I want to design a L3 Link with EIGRP or OSPF between the two cores for redundanz. They should act as the default GW with HSRP . So what I need is to discuss with our customer and he ask me shoud he need a SUP720 ? what is the advantage over SUP2 ?
Any comments ..?
