The layer-2 switching is very fast.The hardware is rugged. We use it for the basic configuration.The solution is compatible with many brands, such as VMware.The command-line interface is easy to use.The quality, like all Cisco solutions, is very high. The fact that it's Cisco is one of the reasons we chose to use it.One valuable feature is that you can string a number of switches together, and the fact that there are various methods to connect them, such as by stacking.The queue functionality is the solution's most valuable feature, specifically because we are delivering a lot of Layer 2 services. Layer 2 protocol tunnels work well on Cisco switches.This is a great solution for network switching and security.

Cons
The CLI syntax for this solution is different from other switches such as Cisco and Juniper, and it takes us a long time to integrate a new device and get it working properly.I think there is a need for more support of new generation technologies.

I would like to see this solution automatically store multiple versions of the configuration file.We've had hardware problems like SSDs, ports, networking, things like that.The price could be lower. It's quite expensive.The licensing needs to be improved.Cisco has a licensing procedure that is very complicated and it changes every six months.Switches should be made stackable, even if they are not of the same model.The solution needs to work on lowering the amount of bugs. We find them quite regularly.Technical support for integrations with other network products is insufficient and should be improved.
