I design, implement, and troubleshoot networks that use Cisco switches. I am involved in every part of the design, including wireless.
We use this solution for networks linking SMB Offices and remote access VPN.
This solution is capable of high-quality L2 & L3 switching at several different layers of our enterprise with a high rate of availability and reliability. It has excellent dynamic routing capabilities. We manage a large WAN environment that requires the use of OSPF. Cisco Catalyst Switches perform these two functions very well.
We use this solution for provisioning.
Our primary use case is system integration on the client end. We propose this solution to our customers based on their individual capacities and requirements. We have also been using the basic functionalities of the tool internally, very basic not to any high-end degree.
We use this solution for the campus network.
Our primary use case is for networking, both for the local network and our internet network.
We use it everywhere in our company. The switches are in our data center and our stores. It performs really well, it's stable. There are some software issues but it's generally good.
Our primary use case of this solution is for routing, switching, and for interconnecting sites.
We use Catalyst for campus switches.
We use it for connecting the users on the network. The performance has been good.
The use case is for user access. It's good, it's performing very well.
LAN switch for both core and access layers. It has performed very well in this area.
Generally, we are using Cisco Catalyst switches for the campus network. We are currently using the Cisco Catalyst 3800 Series switches with IOS XE, and we also recently onboarded the Catalyst 9300 Series and 9400 Series, mostly for the campus network. We also use the 3800 Series switch for wireless connectivity, which provides UPOE, supporting up to 60 watts for the PoE devices. Performance-wise, Catalysts are so good in the LAN infrastructure, especially for a campus network. But for a data center environment, we mostly prefer the Cisco Nexus series.
We usually use it for connecting campus switches and to provide access switching to the customer, through which they connect their end-user or end devices like WiFi, CCTV, or IP phone.
We use it mainly for access, as an access switch to other PCs.
The use case will depend on the customer's requirements. Generally, if they want the access layer, the 2960 works pretty well. If they are in the SMB market, we go with the SZ series which is okay. If the primary use case is more on the PoE side, Catalyst switches give the most. And with respect to two-port, the 2960 is better.
I was a Support Engineer with Cisco, I used to support customers who were using Cisco Catalyst features.
The last Catalyst I used was for a core solution in an airport. That was a 3850. The previous use case was as the backbone of an ISP. We used different models of Cisco Catalyst including 3560s and 3700s.
Access layer Switches. VLAN Segmentation, Inter-VLAN and LAN Routing. 802.1X network access device.
AWS Direct Connect.
LAN and WAN links in our offices and data centers.
Our primary use is LAN and WAN links for our enterprise network. Cisco Catalyst is used to connect all our WAN links to a central data center.
