Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"For me, the initial setup was easy and straightforward, but for some of our customers who are not as familiar with networking, it can be complicated.""A stable product that is absolutely dependable.""This is a great solution for network switching and security.""The technical support is good and they respond quickly. I haven't had any problems.""The most valuable feature is the complete functionality, but the most important thing is support.""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.""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 command-line interface is easy to use."

Cons
"The dashboard needs some minor improvements.""The product could improve in the area of simulated switches.""Technical support for integrations with other network products is insufficient and should be improved.""This may be something that they are already working on, but it would be an improvement if they could add a layer of security to layer two and layer three to protect the server and to protect the data.""Pricing could be lower.""The solution needs to work on lowering the amount of bugs. We find them quite regularly.""Switches should be made stackable, even if they are not of the same model.""The licensing needs to be improved."

In this part of the world, that's quite expensive for us.""These switches are expensive, but they are an excellent buy and definitely have value for the investment.""We are happy with the pricing from Cisco."
