Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches Room for Improvement

Some of these switches are still using a GUI interface, but I would prefer using the command line interface like the original system. Lynksys are only switches using the GUI interface. Scalability-wise, this solution is not designed for small businesses. View full review »

I think that most everyone prefers a GUI rather than working through the command line. They have a GUI but it's not that interesting when you compare it to other vendors such as Check Point. They should reduce the price to stay competitive. While the Cisco product is good, the pricing is not competitive. People will end up going with other cheaper solutions such as Arista. The drawbacks come from support. The tools are rare, but to find someone knowledgeable with Cisco, is a problem. There are issues with the C-Level required to maintain them and then to configure them. View full review »

The only thing that needs to improve, the only stumbling block, especially in our region, is the cost of the solution. But from a hardware and software perspective, the feedback we get is essentially positive. Our users are very impressed with the product. View full review »

Having the option for a web-based interface would be an improvement over being forced to use the CLI. This is especially true for the high-end switches. View full review »

There isn't anything negative to point out about the solution. Like all Cisco products, it's very good. If possible, we'd like to see support in our country, but it will be difficult as we are located in Iran. The solution doesn't have rich features and only offers a small support for expander products and protocols. View full review »

The stability of the solution needs improvement. There's a problem with disconnecting the network. I have to restart it and set it correctly again. After a while, it disconnects again and I have to report it once more. The solution's framework and some of the techniques need improvement. I've been watching Aruba, and they have a lot of technologies within the access points. For example, it has a virtual controller to connect all Aruba switches. Sharing access, sharing Wi-Fi or access IDs would be great. View full review »

The pricing for this solution needs to be improved. I would like to see built-in registration features for the users to help with accessing Google and other platforms. View full review »
