I just finished installing a second Catalyst 3560 in the community lab. The new switch was provided by an enormously generous donor who wishes to remain anonymous. The Catalyst 3560G-24 sports IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet and takes the place of the 3550 that served as S2 in the lab topology.
Thank you, anonymous donor!
We've now reached our goal of having two 3560s available for use in the lab, one for each device block. Note that S2 is now a Gigabit Ethernet switch; all its interfaces are numbered as GigabitEthernet0/X. Since we've reached our goal, I've taken down the ChipIn widget and brought back the simple PayPal donation button.
So, what should our next goal be? What else would people like to see in the lab? With the addition of a switch that supports standardized PoE, I thought it might be cool to throw a couple PoE-powered IP phones into the mix (no CUCM stuff though). Any other ideas?
