      Hm.  I looked at both the Cisco 3548 and the Intel 460T.  In my case,
at least, the Cisco was cheaper per port, even with the Enterprise

www.datacommwarehouse.com lists the 3548 with enterprise s/w at $3,630US.
a 16-port 460t lists for $830US. a 24-port 460t lists for $1110US.
cheaper out of the box as well as cheaper per port, or did i miss something?

what price are you finding for a cisco3548?

it appears allied telesyn has a 24-port fully managed switch for $740
(AT-8126XL-10), as well as a 16-port model (AT-8118), and although
i'd be surprised if port monitoring weren't a feature, the a-t website
doesn't seem to specifically mention it.

Intel 460T switch.  http://www.intel.com/network/products/exp460t.htm
802.1p, 802.1Q, managed, link aggregation, gigabit or fiber module,
embedded webserver, 1U size, around $830 (12-port).
(well, ok, it may not be *the cheapest*, but...)
