Cisco Ethernet Switches Review

High performance, stable, and installation easy

What is our primary use case?

This solution is used as a networking switch for my customers.

What is most valuable?

This solution is overall a high-grade solution compared to others.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for approximately 16 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

My customers are satisfied with the stability of the solution when they are using DNA architecture, otherwise, they are not.

How was the initial setup?

I am an engineer and I think that the initial setup was not difficult. However, if you are going to build DNA architecture in this case, it is difficult because to build an operational DMI network architecture, the customer must have a CCI engineer.

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

The price of this solution is high. 

There could be an improvement in the licensing by reducing the price of the different types, such as essential, advantage, and premium.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have evaluated HP and other solutions.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is there are other options than Cisco solutions.

I rate Cisco Ethernet Switches an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
