Reliable switches that don't require management

What is our primary use case?

These are Layer 2 switches. We have mostly Layer 2 and we have one Layer 4 switch. We have a plan to move away from this product. If it works, they will be there just as a backup only. But for most of the equipment, we're moving towards newer products. Within our company, we have around 200-plus terminals that are connected, meaning there are over 200 PCs connected.

What is most valuable?

They're straightforward and stable. They're built like a workhorse — you leave them alone and they do their thing. Overall, they're a good product; they don't break down.

What needs improvement?

I think there's nothing that needs to be improved because the company is no longer in existence. 

For how long have I used the solution?
