Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch LAN Switches Review

Easy-to-use switches that get the job done

What is our primary use case?

These are our core switches; we use them for networking. 

Within our organization, there are roughly 30 people using these switches. All maintenance is handled by two staff members.

These OmniSwitches are very manageable and easy to configure.

I can't think of anything that needs to be improved. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch LAN Switches for a couple of years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

These switches are both very stable and scalable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't had any negative experience with technical support. 

Alcatel has a website that you can log onto and ask questions if you're experiencing any issues. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial installation was very straightforward. Standard configuration only takes roughly 40 minutes. 

What about the implementation team?

You can do it yourself but you'll need some networking knowledge. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is okay. It's comparable to similar switches.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of nine. If they lowered the price, I would give them a ten.
