What do you like best?

Cisco Catalyst Switches can work years without any interruption, that is their so-called biggest advantage. Because reliability is the most needed element in computer networks. Also based on my experiences cisco devices do not have any problems when working together with other vendors. When administrator knows the CLI , then almost everything is possible to configure and everything can be done in as shortest time as possible. Another best thing that Cisco is offering is the support. They are really eager to help you with any kind of problem you have with the device or service. I have only positive experiences when working with Cisco. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Cisco datacenter devices are bit noisy, but who cares when they are closed in rack in datacenter :). Also price is sometimes higher as the competitors, but you pay for quality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I can only recommend to buy Cisco device. Doesn't matter if cisco catalyst or Nexus. They are always stable and working flawlessly without issues. They are also always up to date, because Cisco Talos daily check for vulnerabilities and provides patches to keep them safe from attackers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a core switch device, through which all our medium-size company traffic would be routed. Cisco were ideal candidate for it. It was capable to handle all traffic and divide network together with firewalls into more logical and smaller blocks (networks). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Me gusta la calidad de un equipo que muestra eficiencia a la hora de trabajar, me gusta que la compañía Cisco trabaje al 100% para mejorar sus equipos y así poder brindar software de calidad a sus clientes. Para mi unos de las mejores compañías de estos equipos de red, seria CISCO ya que me ofrece gran comodidad a la hora de interconectar mis equipos y aún más fácil a la hora de administrarlos y me gusta que me siento muy cómodo con contar con equipo de alta seguridad y rendimiento como los son los catalyst de Cisco. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Esta pregunta es muy complicada de responder debido a que una empresa con compañías en todo el mundo y miles de comunidades que buscan tener estos equipos en sus empresas, hace que la compañía de CISCO trabaje para evolucionar cada día y brindar nuevas actualizaciones a sus clientes ya sea en temas seguridad o rendimiento en la red, pero un punto tal vez negativo en esto es que los equipos se vuelven muy costosos y por eso muchas otras empresas se ven en busca de obtener otros equipos alternos igual de buenos como Microtik o equipos de otras marcas. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

En mi parecer recomiendo estos equipos no solo por su calidad que es notable si no porque cuentas con una empresa solidad en el mercado de las telecomunicaciones, tal vez podrían crear algunos equipos que sean igual de buenos como los que ahora van conformando pero con un costo menor, para que así muchos de los clientes no compren otros dispositivos de la competencia. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bueno yo utilizo estos equipos en una red empresarial, la cual está muy bien conformada por Routers, switches, Firewall, Routers inalámbricos y telefonía ip. Tengo que aceptar que para el tiempo que está establecida esta red los equipos han funcionado de calidad y su administración es de mi gusto, a pesar de lo costoso que puedan ser yo recomiendo estos equipos a la hora de interconectar los equipos necesarios para levantar una red segura, estable, redúndate y duradera.

What do you like best?

La serie de switches de Cisco son dispositivos de alta tecnología, me gusta porque realmente tiene todo lo que necesita una LAN, cualquier compañía con una infraestructura seria necesita implementar un switch y lo mejor sería Cisco de cualquiera de sus dependiendo del requisito de la red, Me gusta mucho la cantidad de características y funciones que tiene, tiene una variedad de configuraciones bastante buenas para implementar varias tecnologías, como VLAN, STP, Etherchannel, Portsecurity, entre otras, que son necesarias para una red de negocios. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Realmente es un punto que debe tenerse en cuenta porque muchas personas no manejan este rango de Cisco, lo que realmente es un punto negativo para el conmutador de Cisco es su curva de aprendizaje, es muy larga, tiene varios meses e incluso años para aprender cómo Funciona, sus configuraciones, etc., es bastante complejo, pero una vez que tenga el conocimiento básico, es posible hacer muchas cosas increíbles, aunque también podríamos decir que sus precios son algo más altos en comparación con otras compañías que hacen Switch pero en consideración Podría mejorar para esa marca. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Mi recomendación para Cisco Switch es que siempre mantenga un aprendizaje constante sobre estos dispositivos, también para cualquier compañía que quiera implementar una red LAN y se mantenga interconectada a los hosts internos de manera enfocada, ellos tendrán la más alta seguridad y control de la red. Póngase en red con este dispositivo, siempre considerando su precio, pero vale la pena invertir en un dispositivo que sea realmente bueno y que satisfaga las necesidades de la empresa.

This is a great quiet fan less smart switch. The web GUI management interface makes it easy to configure the switch.It is a great option for those who wants to upgrade from an unmanaged switch. Each ports default to layer 2, but you can change each port to layer 3. VLANs are easy to configure with the VLAN wizard. Configure your existing DHCP to assign the switch an IP address (MAC is on the box and switch) and plug the switch into your existing network to get started, otherwise it uses its a default IP.

One of the things that I like this sw range is its easy configuration at the VLAN level and port mode assignment, this catalyst range offers giga speed ports, thanks to this it improves the sending of packages in each of its ports. It also offers the security part with the port-security protocol, which helps us to have greater security in our infra-structure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the sw of this range in several of the protocols of layer 2 are exclusive of cisco, and when we have an infrestrutura of direfente manufacturers is useless many of the commands. It would be very useful to standardize the protocols so that all manufacturers use it and get more out of this equipment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

thanks to the sw catalyst my network works at gigabit speeds, I also have them configured in stack mode to use two sw as if they were one in my access layer, to have more access ports for end users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The handling of these devices is very practical, the catalys series in one of the most complete series of switches that are on the market, since it has many security features and very useful protocols developed by Cisco. Personally, it is the most complete team since at the configuration level, having the basic knowledge of Cisco networks, you can implement it in your internal network without any problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of the failures that I find to the catalyst series is the capacity of momoria that manages, the problems that occur are a little serious since it does not allow the access to manage the equipment and slowness in the process of the packages in the network. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to the cisco catalyst switch I manage the packages in layer two. The spanningtree protocol is one of the ones I like the most at the distribution layer level, to avoid endless packet loops. the creation of VLANS, to segment the network are some of the functions that I use with the switches of the Catalyst series.

What do you like best?

Las empresas que eligen Cisco saben que la inversión inicial de costes puede parecer

engañosa. Es fácil de olvidar que el coste de la compra inicial de su red asciende

tipicamente al 20 por ciento de los costes totales de propiedad. A menudo, el 80 por

ciento restante procede de los gastos de costes operacionales, mantenimiento y soporte.

Sin embargo, con Cisco el coste total de propiedad desciende, debido a la reducción de

costes operacionales durante la vida del producto.

Las empresas que compran únicamente un switch por precio (por ejemplo, escogiendo un

producto de consumo, en vez de uno diseñado específicamente para empresas), no

suelen tener en cuenta el impacto de su decisión. Generalmente, no tienen en cuenta la

importancia de considerar factores tales como la escalabilidad, si la empresa creciera, y la

fiabilidad. Esto resulta a menudo en costes ocultos tales como caídas de red y pérdida de

productividad.

El soporte técnico y las opciones de financiación de Cisco ofrecen a las empresas soporte

continuo, ayudando a superar muchos de estos problemas y añadir valor al dinero a largo

plazo.

Incluso porque la tecnología de Cisco es de la más alta calidad, y está diseñada para ser

fácil de gestionar, el coste total de propiedad es generalmente más bajo que los

productos de la competencia. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No me disgusta ningún aspecto, lo único que todos sabemos es que el precio de los equipos Cisco es un poco alto, con lo cual se hace difícil en ciertas situaciones la compra del mismo equipo.

Ventajas en contra del precio

Fiabilidad (simplemente no pueden afrontar los costes debidos a la inactividad del

sistema).

Seguridad avanzada (protegiendo los activos de sus datos y por consiguiente la

integridad y continuidad de su negocio).

Tecnología que pueda crecer con su negocio (para que puedan capitalizar el potencial

de la tecnología y aplicaciones, tales como VoIP y tecnología inalámbrica).

Garantía de Producto (de modo que sepan que la inversión de tecnología está

protegida). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We purchased the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X model for four branches to be used as an access switch. I'm really enjoying it, until then I've used basic features like VLANs, dhcp snopping, and bandwidth management. It was very easy to set up and they are working very well. We need to use technical support two times and everything went well, very quick. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

catalyst switches are excellent switches that help a small or medium company in the solution of scalability, they are switches that adapt to the environment that each company has. It has very solid solutions, such as portsecurity, segmentation of networks (VLANS). This is one of the functions that I like most about switches because it is very easy to do and configure it, compared to other competitors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

what disgusts me about this product are its high cost, because being one of the most recognized brands and used in the world of networks is put as first place and with a high price but for a good solution offering good features and services . Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this product completely if you require a small or medium business solution, it is adaptable and scalable, you must study the configurations very well since it is handled by terminal. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used this product to be able to segment the network also scalability since we had a switch that had been left with few available ports and the growth of the network was considerable, it was decided to acquire a 48-port switch catalyst to be able to give supply the necessary requirements, apart from having a better administration.
