Pricing and Cost Advice
Try to buy everything you need in bulk purchases and ask Cisco for volume discounts.It's very pricey. Compared to competitors, it's a lot more expensive.The price is on the higher side.Pricing of Cisco equipment is high, but I think these switches are worth the price.I would rate the features-to-pricing ratio at six out of 10. My advice about licensing is that you should have a perpetual license, not one that is subscription-based.Catalyst is very expensive.Pricing is an issue I have been facing, in comparison with HPE or Juniper. The Nexus series is out of the question right now. Scalability is more an issue on the pricing side and less on the technology side.Generally, Cisco Catalyst would be relatively expensive compared to the competition, it would be on the expensive side.
