3Com H3C Switches

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

Cisco Meraki MS Switches

From small companies to large ones these are invaluable tools. I would say though that I would not use them in my Core SAN stack, where Nexus CISCO switches are likely a better fit.

Pros

  • Great product used on a budget.
  • It gets the job done.
  • Better switches than most competitors.
  • A single pane of Glass for all my switches
  • They show any interruption of networking easily and at a glance
  • The alert me when they go down or come back up
  • I can get deep information about what apps are doing on the network

Cons

  • Our network is slow.
  • Feels like things are not working properly at times.
  • Old equipment.
  • Some information gets cloudy when drilling down- but they have a new tool coming out called Insights that is supposed to deal with that (and more).
  • Traffic shaping rules should be in the switches and not just the security appliances

The few times I needed it we got things fixed within 15 minutes. Outstanding.

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.
The switches fair well against the other business solutions for features and options. Be aware of costs (with the on-going element) to ensure you have your sums right when you buy them.

Return on Investment

  • Great price.
  • Great product for small company.
  • It was great before we expanded.
  • The Meraki eco-system adds real value to the business
  • The ease of setup and wealth of add-ons has really helped
  • The looks of the kit have helped in the smaller offices where the kit is "on show"
