  • Cisco Vs. Liknsys Switches

    Hi,

    I am designing an small company network were a PoE in some areas is a must.
    Total number of users are about 45
    Total number of surveillance equipment (ip cameras) are about 10
    Is there a posibility in abt a year to change the pabx to a VoIp system.
    The Internet access is Broadband and no more than four users could be remotely connected to the lan so a Small Firewall is a must.
    My design uses GigaBit Server Access and 100BaseT for end users.
    I had been looking at Cisco solutions but found Linksys solutions either.
    The price difference itīs big enough to think carefully, but I am afraid to home devices (Linsys) into this environment.
    Maybe I am affected by Ciscoīs Marketing
    Your opinions will be kindly appreciatted.
    Thanks,
    Javier

    Honestly if you can use Cisco that is great, however I have used Dell and Linksys's business class switches "Manged 24 and 48 port" and they work great.
    However for the firewall certainly go with Cisco, Juniper or something like that.
