To help you find the best enterprise ethernet switches, IT Central Station ranked them based on hundreds of real user reviews, from our esteemed community of enterprise technology professionals. You'll find comparisons of pricing, performance, features, stability and many other criteria. Read below to find out what your peers have to say about ethernet switch vendors such as Cisco, HPE, Juniper Networks and others.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.
IT Central Station members were asked what aspects are most important when evaluating Ethernet switches and the consensus was: compatibility with the system's needed functions (for example VLAN compatible), gigabit connectivity, interoperability, open API, and performance. Ease of administration, use, and maintenance/management are also necessary components. Many users also mentioned port ratio, PoE, and reliability.
