Cisco Linksys Ethernet Switches Valuable Features

Akram Khan
Director of Information Technology at UniTeller Financial Services

I think the most valuable feature of Cisco Switches is basically the ease of use, the ease of management. The most important thing may be the support. Support is available and having access to good support has been the difference all along as a user of Cisco products. The most important thing about product support is that everything is made very available. Most of this stuff — I would say more than 90% of the technical stuff — is available online. Anybody can just go online and Google their questions, problems, or what they want to find out about and just download the documents and then get to work with the product. Some other products are good products, but there is not so much good technical information out there to support the products. Those products become less useful and less fully utilized.

My work is able to continue because the switches are reliable. That is mostly what is important to me. I can not say that I like the product more than other switches because I have not worked with other switches in a long time and I have not had any difficulty with these. They are working fine right now and the support is good for so far.

Our clients have not provided any feedback. What they are interested in is that it is working and runs their network with no interruptions. This is why we purchase these switches for our customers.

It is not as good as the original switches Cisco previously had but it is better than other solutions.

I like the ability to do the segmentation on the access layer. It allows you to segment the network into a zone or workgroups. By defining the VLAN you can logically separate the traffic. It helps minimize the risk with lateral movement and reduces the attack of Malware within your network.

Cisco has many advanced features. These days they come in as advanced slavers from a feature perspective and we always try to lead with advanced features. Back in the day, it used to be LAN-based and IP-based. Now we need to focus on the new technologies that are out there. We will always try to lead with advance.

They are good for connecting users. These switches are very stable. We have been using them for three years, and we haven't had any problems.

Having 48 POE ports is a very good feature

The most valuable feature of Cisco routers is that they are robust. One of our customers has a switch that has been running for more than ten years without any issues.

I have found their security features the most valuable. These security features are supported on most of the other features. Similarly, the protocols and the standards are supported on other features, such as the cascading feature, the availability feature, and protocols.

The most important feature related to this solution is that most of the time, it covers all of what we need for our projects. It is suitable as a complete solution.

The generalization is useful.

This is a flexible solution that integrates well with other platforms and products.

The solution is a very good cost-effective product. It has the reputation of a Cisco system, however, it's provided at a much smaller price.

For a home or small business, the solution offers a very good web interface.
