I’m currently using Cisco WS-4948-10GE switches on some of my sites.
Since I need more than two 10-Gig ports the Cisco 4948s have reached end-of-life for me. 
The current Cisco 4948 switches are doing my OSPF and BGP routing, as well as some ACLs and actually work great for us….
I’m looking to replace the current switches with Cisco 3850-12XS switches (using the IP Services OS).
Does anyone have experience with the Cisco 3850-12XS switches, in comparison to the WS-4948-10GE switches? Or other recommendations?
