What is most valuable?

The most valuable part of this solution for us VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network), MAC authentication and security.

What needs improvement?

For Cisco, the interface between fiscal small business switches and the Cisco Catalyst or Enterprise switch is a little bit different. So, I needed to take some time to… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is certainly not the least expensive product for switching, but I think it is the best and if you have the budget it is worth it.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product and also a support contract. I don't think that I would pay this price without getting the support. We are happy with this solution but it is really an old model. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?
