Cisco Ethernet Switches

I would recommend Cisco Ethernet Switches for any established company, or education system of just about any size,. Basically the only place that I would not recommend Cisco Switches would be a startup that is on a limited budget, because they could get out much cheaper going with another cheaper brand.

Alternatives Considered

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

Both vendors can produce good switches and I don't find big differences from reliability or technical level between them
