Cisco Catalyst Switches Review

Ease of configuration, the CLI, and the GUI are the key features for us


What is our primary use case?

The use case is for user access. It's good, it's performing very well.

How has it helped my organization?

Catalyst functions as a core and the main benefit for us is the performance, having multiple users.

What is most valuable?

The main valuable features for me are

  • the ease of configuration
  • CLI
  • GUI.

What needs improvement?

My dream is to have the netflow in the port, for the administration and the utilization of user traffic, similar to the Meraki.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's very scalable. It's very easy to cover all the services.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We chose Catalyst because we are looking to the future.

When selecting a vendor, the most important criteria for me are the post-sale support as well as the price.

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

Catalyst is very expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

For our company, Cisco's competition was Aruba.

What other advice do I have?

The configuration is simple and the support is good. The equipment for networking is the best for an organization. It's working very well.

I rate Catalyst at 10 out of 10 because of the performance and support.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
