BPIPA course cover Campus Switches = ICX Series, and the MLX and CER/CES Series Router/Swicthes.
more indicate for a small Home LAB - as per my opinion and from a point of reasonable cost - is the ICX-7250 L3 Prem. License, because I do not think they want to put at Home a BIG MLX.
the same for CER/CES this is +/- 20K USD maschine

I've gone (so far) with a couple ICX6450's and several ICX6430's. Since most of my work will be on edge switches in a fairly conventional environment going the 7xxx route may be a bit of overkill, especially where it comes to price. That doesn't rule out picking up a couple 7450's down the road.
BPIPA will wait for a while. For now my employer wants me to do the BACI.
