How long does it take your network equipment to boot up?

Postby admin » Thu Aug 15, 2013 1:12 pm

Please post the product that you use and how long it takes to go from no power to the point where you can issue a command and/or start using it.

I would like to find the network equipment with the fastest boot time.

Cisco WS-C3560G-48TS --> c3560-ipbasek9-mz.122-55.SE7 --> 4 minutes, 24 Seconds
Cisco WS-C2960+48PST-L --> Version 15.0(2)EZ --> 2 minutes, 58 seconds to 3 minutes 24 Seconds

Please share boot times of your network equipment!!!!

Brand, Model, and software it's running.

A few years ago I used Foundry FES2402 that would boot up and pass traffic in 45 seconds.

Riverbed Steelhead CX-555 takes about 4 minutes to get to the CLI, but about 6.5 minutes to get to the GUI.

WS-C2960CPD-8PT-L (Cisco's Compact switch with no fan) Takes about 4 minutes to boot up using 12.2(55)EX2

A software upgrade from 12.2(55)EX2 to 15.2(1)E1 also took about 4 minutes

How long does it take to reboot a Cisco 4506-E with a SUP8-E

Your looking at about 7 minutes.
