Cisco FabricPath Review

A stable networking solution with good technical support

What is our primary use case?

We are a leading solution integrator and Cisco FabriPath is one of the products that we implement for our customers.

This solution makes up part of an enterprise LAN. 

What is most valuable?

The technical assistance is good.

What needs improvement?

The exact role that this solution plays, as compared to other products by Cisco, is unclear to our customers. It is sometimes difficult to highlight exactly what individual products are used for and it is something that should be simplified.

This product doesn't have its own LAN monitoring tool.

There would be more support for this solution if there were options available for those with a smaller budget.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Cisco for at least ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Cisco FabriPath is a stable solution. Apart from a few cases, we have had no issues with reliability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not had any issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

We are satisfied with the technical support.

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

We primarily use Cisco, but apart from that, we also use networking solutions from Aruba.

If a customer has a critical demand for a product from another vendor such as Juniper or HPE then we can provide it. However, normally we use either Cisco or Aruba.

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

We are satisfied with the pricing.

What other advice do I have?

Most of our customers are satisfied with the solutions from Cisco. That said, nothing is ever completed because everybody has their own difficulties and challenges.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
