Customers of the Cisco Catalyst 3750G-24TS-S and 3750G-24TS-E 1.5 rack-unit switches are encouraged to migrate to the newer Catalyst 3750G-24TS-S1U and 3750G-24TS-E1U 1 rack-unit switch models, respectively. The migration products offer several key advantages. They consume significantly less power, thereby reducing energy costs. Their 1-RU design results in a 33 percent savings in wiring closet space when compared to the older 1.5-RU products. They have twice the flash memory (32 MB vs. 16 MB), which will make future software upgrades easier. Detailed information about the new switches can be found at this URL: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps5023/index.html.
