Cisco Nexus Review

Provides enhanced security and is easy to manage for the network admin

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for Cisco Nexus is for MACsec encryption.

How has it helped my organization?

Nexus has improved my organization in the way that it provided enhanced security in a point in the network that was critical. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ease of management for network administration.

What needs improvement?

The additional features I would like to see included in the next release is the ability to integrate routing and switching features. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is relatively stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Cisco Nexus is very scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The Cisco technical support is good as of now.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

When I was the systems analyst, we discovered a need for Cisco Nexus. We had limited encryption support. We didn't have any similar solutions before.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was relatively simple.

What about the implementation team?

We used an integrator for the deployment. 

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I would rate the product at an eight. Cisco Nexus is excellent. I wouldn't rate it a ten because it could use an enhanced feature set.

I would advise someone considering this solution to consider all of the vendors.
