Should You Buy the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Chassis Switch?

IT professionals who use Cisco hardware want to be sure they are choosing the right switching solution for their network. As their network grows they may ask if they should continue to use stacked switches or maybe switch to a chassis solution like the Cisco 6500.

However, this decision isn’t always easy. There are plenty of considerations.

  • Does it have the capabilities I need?
  • Does it provide the performance I need?
  • Will it accommodate growth or changes?
  • Should I make the jump to the Cisco Nexus?
  • Is the cost of ownership right?

We speak to people all the time who have these kinds of questions. To help answer these kinds of questions, we created a free guide to help people make informed and intelligent decisions.

In this guide you will get a solid background of the Cisco 6500 series and get the information you need to answer the kinds of questions you might have. What is the goal? We want to give people who are considering the Cisco 6500 the kind of information they need to help them make the right decision.

The most important thing is that you choose the switch that is right for you.

After reading this guide you may find that the Cisco 6500 isn’t right for you. You might find that you should stick with a stackable switching solution with switches like the Cisco 3750. Then again, you might find you need to move to something like the Cisco Nexus.
