We currently aren't doing any QoS, and a limited amount of policing.  Besides 
the C3750G, are there any other switches worth a look?  We're a mixed 
Juniper/Cisco shop, so I've been looking at the EX3200 line as well.  We need 
something that will do OSPF and limited BGP (just to announce customer subnets 
back in to the network).
