The biggest advantage of having this solution is that it is easy to find engineers, and they are cheaper than hiring HP engineers.

The most valuable feature of this solution is managed switching.

We heavily use the SmartPort features. It has really helped us. The U.S. policies are handled by the auto SmartPort feature

The new series has lots of great features, it's really lovely. From a management perspective, or a policy creation perspective, which we are seeing in the Catalyst 9000 series it is great.

The stability and Cisco's support are the most valuable features.

Their technical support is very good. They know what to do and if they don't know what to do, they give me the person who does know.

It has become easier for us to troubleshoot and find issues faster in the management software for the switches. It saves us troubleshooting time because if the network is down it has a big impact on production.

The main valuable features for me are the ease of configuration, the CLI, and the GUI.

The most important features are that Cisco is one of the most robust switches, it is easy to configure, and the documentation is pretty good.

The most valuable features are the Stacking and the capacity of the switches because they have more throughput. Layer 2 is also part of its rich feature set.

If we are providing a switching solution, it's not just switching, it's a whole solution with DNA. That is where the whole concept of Network Management and Network Assurance comes in. So Catalyst plays a big role in putting everything together and providing a whole solution to the customer.

A good feature of Cisco Catalyst is that it records crash log files which can be used to literally identify the cause of a crash because there is a lot of information. And Cisco Catalyst supports the use of external flash disks for storing of images and file systems.

The 802.1X port security and other security features work well and help keep the network secure.

We have to use the QoS (CBWFQ) function... and it is easy to use.
