Buy two of these 48 port switches
48port (100 Mbps) + 4 1000 Mbps
aggregate 2 of the 1000Mbps ports into a trunk to the second switch. So you
have 2 1000Mbps ports going to the server (bonded). And the other two going
to the other switch as a trunk. 96 ports total. They cost $350 USD each at
newegg after $50 rebate.
