ERS 4800 series
« on: January 15, 2014, 11:59:41 AM »
Hi guys,

One quick question : Is anyone had a good experience mixing 4500 series with 4800 series in the case of a stack ?

The 4500 are getting older and we want to purshase something newer in the same scope. We have a couple of 4550T-PWR and currently replacing them with 4548GT-PWR to progessivly pass our network over Gig.

But I was wandering if it's a good idea to start buying 4850GTS-PWR+ instead. It's even seem to be pretty much the same price from our provider.

Any advise ?

Thanks !

The 4800's will stack with the 4500's just fine in my tests I have done.  If you can get 4800's for the same price as 4500's, go for it.  The 4800's have more RAM, flash and CPU power and can handle things like PoE+.  Just make sure the 4800 is the base unit in a mixed stack is really the only tip I have.  In the future they can be converted to SPB if you want to use it where as the 4500's can't.

In Canada the 4800 is now the same price as the 4500, so just buy 4800s.

however, you can only do SPB on ERS4800s that are HW v10 or higher.
