Frame Switch Choice

Hey guys... need some advice. For anyone who read my previous post http://www.techexams.net/forums/ccna-ccent/55232-local-significance-dlci.html, I was having some issues with understanding DLCIs. I think I have figured it out now and looking into doing more lab work to make sure everything sticks.

So, I am picking up a frame-relay switch to simulate the Service Provider. I am going to hook my 2501s up to it.

If you have to choose between:

(1) Cisco 2620 with a NM-4AS 16/64D for $110

OR

(2) Cisco 2522 for $100

Which would you go with...?

    I'd say the 2522. For nearly the same price you're getting twice as many ports which will come in handy if you move on past the CCNA. The 2620 has the NM and a couple WIC slots which give it more options than the 2522, but beyond that, the 2600's aren't hugely better than the 2500's.

    I don't know much about the 2522's but I'd take Alan's word for it that they are good.

    I have some 2620's and I really like them. For my frame relay switch, I have a 3620 with the 4 port serial module.

    Take a 2501 and slap another 8 serial ports on it. icon_cool.gif
