    LACP switch recommendation

    I need a switch to simply go from 10 LAG GE links to SFP+ which will direct attach to a firewall box.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Most switches I'm aware of have a maximum of 8 GbE links in a LAG, although there may be some out there that will do more. Are you looking for a specific form factor? Copper GbE or SFP?

    I assume the SFP+ is 10gbe and the 10 LAG is ge. A dell 6248 will do that fine, though I think the maximum number of ports in a LAG group is 8.

    I am going to assume that you're getting a firewall box that can actually handle 20Gbps or so, which means you're looking at something pretty high end.

    I'd suggest using something like a Juniper EX4200 so you can use SFP+ on both sides or if you need to cheap out something like a Foundry FESX.

    Maximum ist 8 for LACP, as already mentioned.

    Take a look at HP A5800-24G Switch (JC100A)

    24x [email protected] + 4x SFP+

    price: 2500,- incl. VAT

    + has HP lifetime warranty
