We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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."

"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."
