Can anyone tell me what the drawbacks are to mixing a Catalyst 4507 with 3com 3870's? My boss is willing to pay for Cisco in our MDF, but wants the cheaper 3coms in all 10 of our IDFs. Will this cause any problems with vlans or anything else? We are connecting to the 3coms via multimode fiber at gigabit speeds.
BTW, here is the 4507 I am ordering for voice and data. I would appreciate any suggestions on improving it. Thanks
