For LAN switching it's always been Cisco. For LAN switches it's always been Cisco and for Storage Networks it's always been with Dell. I have never mixed them. View full review »

I have dealt with switches from other manufacturers such as Cisco, and the Dell PowerConnect switches are easier to work with and scale. Physically, there are not so different, but the proprietary commands differentiate them. The cost of Dell is also cheaper than that of Cisco. View full review »

We also have Cisco switches in our environment. It is probably 80% Cisco and 20% Dell. I also have experience with Huawei, HP, and Juniper switches. Huawei switches used to use a similar set of commands, but they are different now. HP uses almost the same command set. Juniper switches are more difficult to work with. In our data center, we have also used Arista switches. View full review »

In the previous project I used Sophos but it's for a different purpose with junior board switches. Now we're dealing with a security project so it's a different kind of project with different requirements. View full review »

We also use Cisco switches. They are very similar to this solution. Cisco and Dell have the same functionality. For Dell, however, it's two devices in one cluster. Still, it's very similar. I don't see any big difference between Cisco and Dell. View full review »
