3Com Baseline Switches (Discontinued)

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

Lantronix XPress-Pro SW

Lantronix is very well suited for a lean and mean type of setup where the network devices are monitored, but the location does not have onsite IT support because with the Lantronix the Network Administrator can access the devices without onsite assistance. Lantronix is not necessary for a location with an onsite Network Administrator, but it is nice to be able to console connect without leaving your office.

Alternatives Considered

3Com Baseline Switches (Discontinued)

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

Lantronix XPress-Pro SW

The only device that is similar to the Lantronix that I have used was a serial console device by WTI. The Lantronix is more intuitive, and as I have stated earlier in this review, has the environmental sensors built in. Other than those two minor details, there is virtually zero difference in the two products.
