What do you think of Cisco Catalyst?

Valuable Features The most valuable features, to me, are CDP, VTP, ACLs, and routing. • Improvements to My Organization These products help me dissect my network based on the users within a particular location.

What do you think of Cisco Catalyst?

Primary Use Case Switching environments, as part of a LAN management solution, where the customer needs to build, operate, and maintain Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks for internal use. • Improvements to My Organization It uses many protocols to ease operations, such as CDP and the interoperability of other Cisco products. • Valuable Features Perpetual POE is a valuable feature, because when the switch reboots, access points do not. This helps minimize infrastructure downtime and impacts internals. • Room for Improvement Services should be improved. The delivery of the product lead time should be improved as well. • Use of Solution More than five years. • Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing The price should go down instead of up.

Primary Use Case Our primary use is LAN and WAN links for our enterprise network.  Cisco Catalyst is used to connect all our WAN links to a central data center.  • Improvements to My Organization Low maintenance and very stable; not much of a problem.  It helps keep our network connections in a healthy state.  • Valuable Features VLAN Routing capabilities and security features  It can easily be enabled and used as need dictates.  • Use of Solution One to three years. • Pricing, License Cost and Setup It has a very high cost, but understandably, due to its very good quality. This is the reason why some customers opt to buy cheaper brands with same/similar features.
