[Discuss] 10G Network Equipment 24 Port and 48 Port

Hello Blu,
        Seeking input from others on 10G networking equipment. 

        Specifically looking to increase bandwidth from 1G to 10 G. No vlans, no switch stacking just an increase in speed.  


One end a 24 10G switch - over single mode to a 48 10G.

        The existing equipment is a 10 + year old 4006 core switch.

        Received a quote from Dell for the Power Connect 8132 &  8164 .. 

        A colleague suggested NETGEAR for a fraction of the cost. 

        Needs to be highly reliable and just work. Can any share any experiences here please?

Thank you,
