We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This is a dependable switch which will help you sleep at night."
"The solution has a very good web interface. It makes it easy to manage everything."
"We are able to customize this solution based on the customer's requirements."
"Enables direct access to clusters."
"The fibre ports that are 10 Gb capacity helped with the travel of a lot of regular as well as video data. Fibre can handle a lot more virtual data than copper twisted-pair, so we got a lot more data and a lot more traffic signals back through the fibre ports, faster, than with copper."
"These switches are very easy to install because there is no configuration."
"Its integration is the most valuable."
"I can't find anything wrong with our D-Link Ethernet Switches."
"These switches are simple and easy to configure."
"The solution is scalable."
"The product is simple to manage."
"The solution is easy to use."
"The product would be better if it were completely compatible with other switching products."
"There needs to be better integration with the interface."
"In future versions, I would like to see improvements in networking speed."
"technical support response time is sometimes very slow."
"I could see them possibly creating a more intuitive software. It's very user-friendly, but there are some things that aren't very intuitive when programming the switches."
"I would like an option to create different networks within the switch."
"It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud."
"They could be more stable. They were not as resistant as Cisco. After some time, some of them failed. This could be because we import quite a lot of products from different horizons, so there is no guarantee of quality. In Africa, these products don't always directly come from the manufacturer. We get these products from the Middle East or Asia. Therefore, you cannot be sure that the quality is exactly similar to what you have in Europe or America."
"We have issues with the stability."
"The solution needs better local support."
"In a future release, the solution could improve by being more secure and allowing the configuration of each port."
"The pricing is reasonable compared to Aruba and HPE."
"The D-Link Switches are cheaper than Cisco."
"These units vary in price from $200 to one thousand dollars. They're available for a one-time purchase."
"They were cheap. We were not paying for any license."
"The solution is budget-friendly"
"There is not a license required for this solution and it is priced well."
