Group IT Networks Manager at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees

What is most valuable?

We are not using many of the extended features of the product because our network here in this company is a very standard network. We are using optical fiber connectivity in all our departments, so the aggregation is good. The VLAN feature is very good and easy to manage. We have multiple VLAN and… more»

What needs improvement?

The question of what should be improved is difficult because it can become very technical. From my perspective, I think that the switches should be compatible with all the other switches like Cisco and IBM or any other brands. Sometimes I feel that the Alcatel switches are not working harmoniously… more»

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

Actually, we are using multiple brands of switches from different vendors. It is all Cisco and Alcatel switches, but primarily Alcatel at this point. Some are the newest versions but not all and we maintain the older products. At another company, I used Cisco only because they preferred the Cisco… more»

What other advice do I have?

As someone with long-term experience with the product, I can say that you can trust the Alcatel switches. Earlier, before moving to this company, I did not work with Alcatel switches. When I came here and found out that we have Alcatel Switches, it seemed a little strange to me that I wasn't going… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution has a very good web interface. It makes it easy to manage everything. The command-line interface is very powerful. We can do most of what we need to do within the web interface. It allows us to view or to configure certain… more»

What needs improvement?

It would be helpful if the solution offered an integration interface, like OmniVista, to support and to manage everything. Right now, but we don't have that. It would be ideal if we were able to review the status of the solution. There… more»

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

The company used to use Extreme switches, but it was before I came onto the team, so I don't know the reason behind why they switched.

What other advice do I have?

The current version of the solution we're using right now is 6500 for the OS. I'd recommend the solution to other companies. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I don't believe the company evaluated other products before choosing their current solution.

What is most valuable?

We are able to customize this solution based on the customer's requirements. There is a world-wide R&D team that collects feature requests that they use to enhance the product.

What needs improvement?

The price should be lowered so that we can capture more of the market for Ethernet switches. In future versions, I would like to see improvements in networking speed.

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

The pricing is reasonable compared to Aruba and HPE. Cisco switches are more expensive but the others are almost equal in price. That said, if the price were lower then we could capture more of the market.

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

I also have experience with Ethernet switches from Aruba, HPE, and Cisco.

What other advice do I have?

All of the features in these switches are good. In most cases, everything that our customers need is already inbuilt. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the wireless access points that enable direct access to clusters. This is also a very stable and scalable solution.

What needs improvement?

The solution could be more user friendly and there are issues with technical support where the response time is sometimes very slow. None of the support or the distributor are currently available in my region in Pakistan. There should definitely be additional documentation provided, especially as it's difficult for us to access support. It's difficult to get answers to some of our questions.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.
