Cisco Ethernet Switches Review

Good performance and simplifies operations through minimal maintenance


What is our primary use case?

Cisco Ethernet Switches are being used as part of our new data centers.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution helps us simplify operations through minimal maintenance and ease of patching.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the performance.

The Cisco Feature Navigator is a web-based application that enables you to quickly match Cisco IOS, IOS XE, IOS XR, NX-OS, and CatOS software releases to features. This is available to all Cisco.com users, both registered and non-registered guests.

What needs improvement?

Cisco needs to include new features to attract new customers.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Cisco Ethernet solutions for the last 20 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable enough that it will not create problems in everyday usage.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This system can accommodate expansion without hampering the existing workflow and ensure an increase in output or efficiency.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer service is good. They are responsive within the time frame and resolve our issues.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I haven't used a different solution. We did the upgrade as part of the lifecycle when the previous equipment became end-of-life. It was time for the investment. At the same time, we were building out new data centers.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward and it is easy to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

We have implemented with the help of a vendor and we have an in-house team that is taking care of maintenance.

What was our ROI?

ROI is doubled with the solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did not evaluate other options before choosing Cisco.

What other advice do I have?

I will advise others to buy without any hesitation, as the product quality and deliverables are far more than others without comparing cost. This solution is the best.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
