Router vs. Layer 3 Switch

First dog watch, 3 bells (5:34 pm)

My office is getting a new 10Mb fiberoptic Internet connection soon. Everybody's thrilled about that. My telco reps (XO) are great to work with, but sometimes you still have to dig for information. Today I saved a crapload of money by digging up the fact that I don't need a $15,000 Cisco router to handle the traffic, and a $1500 Layer 3 switch will do in my case.

Make sure you know what you need, though—you may have other needs that will require a router, but if you're like me you may save a crapload of cash.
