As our company is growing we need to be able to upgrade our equipment. It is great for smaller companies.

In areas with harsh temperatures like freezers they are an awesome fit, as I mentioned in the first part of this review. I would not recommend this switch in an area where it may be exposed to other elements like water. For example, in a washdown area like in our food production plants, we are constantly hosing down / steaming the area to sanitize. The only way I would recommend it in an area like that is if it is physically located inside of some sort of enclosure, but in that case you might as well purchase a less expensive non-ruggedized switch and do the same.

I used Cisco and Cisco is a great product but more on the expensive side. This is a great product for smaller companies.

Additionally, the IE3200's compact size and easy integration into existing infrastructure were additional factors that influenced my choice.
