Differences between 2950 adn 2900

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Fred Atkinson, Feb 8, 2005.

  1. Can you please tell me what significant differences there are
    between the Catalyst 2900 and the 2950 series of switches?

  4. Well, I know that the 2950 doesn't support ISL. Are there any
    other differences that are significant?

  5. Folks,

    Let's try this one again.

    Someone suggested that I use a Catalyst 2924-XL rather than a
    2950. I was told that I would notice no differences using it to do
    Cisco lab assignments.

    Not being familiar with the 2924 series, I'd like some other

    Would you go with a 2924 for this purpose? Why would you?
    Which of you would not go with this? Why would you not?

    Mate, it's all in the feature list. There's a significant amount of
    differences between these two switches, and no-one is very likely to
    explain all the differences when they're freely available on CCO.

    The CCIE course now recommends 3750's I believe. 2924's just aren't
    going to cut it.

  7. But I'm not yet taking CCIE. I'm just finishing up CCNA. The
    2950 will do fine for that. What I want to know is how different the
    2924-XL would be from the 2950. Also, what is the significance of the
    XL suffix?

    Cool, well you have already been given the means to the answers.
