Cisco Catalyst Switches Review

Performs really well and has great support, we use it everywhere in our company


What is our primary use case?

We use it everywhere in our company. The switches are in our data center and our stores. It performs really well, it's stable. There are some software issues but it's generally good. 

What is most valuable?

Cisco support is one of the most valuable features. If you have any problem you can find a lot of information online. If it's a really bad situation, you can have a technician help you. 

What needs improvement?

It should have better security and the prices can always be lower. The cheaper the price, the better but if the quality is good, it's worth it. They also have to improve the firewalling. 

SP access should be included in the next release. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is perfect. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability will depend on the specific product. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is very good. They know what to do and if they don't know what to do, they give me the person who does know. 

How was the initial setup?

Sometimes we have complex setups and sometimes they're simple. 

What about the implementation team?

We implemented with MTS Austria. They were really great. They know what to do. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at HPE and Juniper. 

What other advice do I have?

Look at the pricing. If you can afford it, buy it. 

I would rate it a nine out of ten. I like it, it works.
