Brocade And Cisco Switches

I really like that the whole line of Brocade's ICX series has the capability of doing both L2 and L3 (at least static routing).  That is just not the case with Cisco.  I ran into this today on a Cisco 3750-X with a LAN BASE license.  The customer had not purchased the license for L3 capability (IP BASE), so now we are waiting on that to get purchased so we can put it on the switch for the static routing we need (I'm talking about one default route).
If you want detailed explanations of Cisco licensing for the firmware and capabilities, you can go here.
