Cisco 3850X Switches

Cisco recently introduced 3850X Series Access Layer switches – first product to offer wireless convergence. Switch will still be running IOS which will provide great ease of management and bandwidth saving since APs willl not need to go back to controller to talk. I am hoping to be able to deploy one soon. Below is the link to configuration guides for the switch. It is priced exactly the same as 3750X. Link below provides good weekend reading to learn more about the switches
