3Com H3C Switches

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

D-Link Ethernet Switches

D-Link Ethernet Switches, in my opinion, are extremely suited for education or business looking for a top grade network but are on a very tight budget. You get a great product with a great warranty for little of the cost. Customer support is great. Less appropriate would be an industry that just has an abundance of resource and don't care about saving money. Then go with Cisco. Just because of the brand name, not performance. Maybe another would be in your home. Don't need this if all you need is a Wifi Router.

Pros

  • Great product used on a budget.
  • It gets the job done.
  • Better switches than most competitors.
  • Pricing for sure. You get leading industry equipment but affordable prices.
  • Warranty. Even tho it is affordable Dlink does not skimp on your warranty.
  • Performance. Again even tho it is affordable you are getting a top performing network.

Cons

  • Our network is slow.
  • Feels like things are not working properly at times.
  • Old equipment.
  • Web interfaces. Really need to work on easier web interfacing for less "program savvy" users.
  • Needs a WAY BETTER management solution. This is where you can take one piece of software and manage every switch.
  • Maybe and this is stretching, an easier way to keep up with firmware and uploading them.

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.
They stack up great. In performance, Price, Physical style. I have been around many networks with a business that has spent three times as much on a network solution and Dlink matches up toe to toe. Has of now they are moving over to Cisco language. So this will improve the availability of engineers and support.

Return on Investment

  • Great price.
  • Great product for small company.
  • It was great before we expanded.
  • Positive: Better and reliable network
  • Positive: Up time has been GREAT. Don't have to restart switches almost at all.
  • Positive: Saved us large amount of money.
