A reliable solution under harsh environmental conditions

What is our primary use case?

We are using the 5520 and the 5600 models as layer 2 switches, and the 8600 as a layer 3 switch. These units are all on-premises deployments.

Pros and Cons

  • "This solution is very reliable and works well under harsh environmental circumstances."
  • "The CLI syntax for this solution is different from other switches such as Cisco and Juniper, and it takes us a long time to integrate a new device and get it working properly."

What other advice do I have?

Avaya has been acquired by Extreme and I'm guessing that they will replace the current software with ExtremeXOS. I don't know what new features they are implementing or what modification they are going to make. In terms of recommendations, Cisco is not my favorite vendor. I find that Juniper is more flexible, and they are stable like Avaya with no issues. Ultimately, I would recommend either Avaya or Juniper solutions. This is a good solution, but nothing is perfect. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
