I would suggest to anyone interested in implementing this solution to carefully analyze their situation and then prepare the configuration accordingly. I would rate this product an eight out of 10.
We're a reseller as well as a partner. We primarily deal with Cisco products at my organization. I have some knowledge of Aruba as well. FabricPath is Cisco's version of TRILL, an open-source version. I work for a value-added reseller and we're also a system integrator. I work as a technical consultant and I'm more versed in the solution's details, rather than the implementation side of things. Most of our customers range from SMBs to government sector organizations. I'd advise others to do their due diligence and read up on the solution first. Everyone should go through the documentation and the tool before committing to the product. The implementation isn't too hard. It's more important to understand the underlying concepts and to design around that. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten overall.
Since 2019, I have been part of the pre-sales team. I have been certified by Cisco for twenty years. I am a CCNP Network Specialist for Routing and Switching, for Security, and I have certification for CCDP Design. I also have other minor certifications including Aruba ACSP. FabricPath is a very good technology, but we can always do better. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
