We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is easy to use."
"I can't find anything wrong with our D-Link Ethernet Switches."
"Its integration is the most valuable."
"The solution is scalable."
"These switches are simple and easy to configure."
"The product is simple to manage."
"These switches are very easy to install because there is no configuration."
"The speed is very fast."
"These switches are very stable, to date I have not experienced any issues."
"The solution is very, very stable."
"It's fairly lightweight, they don't require a lot of maintenance."
"Stable and scalable."
"The product's stacking technology is stable and works well."
"It is a scalable solution."
"We have scaled it without any issues."
"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."
"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."
"I would like an option to create different networks within the switch."
"We have issues with the stability."
"It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud."
"If there is any fluctuation in power then we will face an outage with our POE switches, so this is something that should be improved."
"Authentication and other security features are not easily satisfied using the lower-end switches."
"It would be better if they improve the implementation of SD-WAN."
"Technical support needs improvement, as the response time could be better."
"The solution is very comparable to Huawei, however, it could be more scalable. Huawei is easier to scale."
"The solution is a bit expensive."
"It is not very stable."
"Configuration can be complex."
"The D-Link Switches are cheaper than Cisco."
"They were cheap. We were not paying for any license."
"There is not a license required for this solution and it is priced well."
"These units vary in price from $200 to one thousand dollars. They're available for a one-time purchase."
"The solution is budget-friendly"
"They are affordable and less expensive than Cisco. Their price was the decider at the time."
"It is a more expensive solution."
"All the solutions have a license for the QSFP. Additionally, there is a one-time license fee to increase the interface speed."
"This is an expensive product."
"The price is fair."
"The pricing is very good."
"We need to pay when we buy the switch. We pay for a license to use the software, but it is not required."
"There are no licensing costs for this solution."
