Cisco Catalyst 1000 Series Switches

Well suited for small to medium office spaces. This is not a switch you'd put in your data center, as it misses a redundant power supply or complex failover mechanisms. It does come with port-trunking, VLAN, etc. which makes it still very versatile. If you're comfortable on the console or use configuration management tools you'll get your network set up in no time.

Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches

Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series (and Cisco products in general) are usually within a higher price bracket than their competitors, but provide better reliability and enterprise support as a result. For highly critical, large scale, high throughput implementations (such as cctv), the extra assurance may be worth it. However, smaller and/or noncritical implementations that do not require best-in-class reliability and support may benefit from more cost-effective alternatives .

Cons

Cisco Catalyst 1000 Series Switches

  • If you're not used to how Cisco names stuff you might search a while to find the right option.
  • Sometimes active- and backup configuration can be a bit confusing.
  • The price tag is rather high. You might be able to save with cheaper brands if you don't need all the features it offers.

Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches

  • Price. There are competitors that provide similar service levels at the most reasonable prices.
  • The innovation of emerging technology in areas of network management and integration.
  • Model numbers can be confusing when wanting to find exactly what you need.
  • Cisco IOS feature sets are even more confusing than the model numbers
  • Be ware of IOS bug(s) that could affect your infrastructure. But every vendor will have them

We have found that Cisco Catalyst 1000 Series switches are highly optimized pieces of hardware that are perfect for their target environments. Smaller, simpler designs allow for more relaxed network room/cabinet requirements and PoE functionality have even allowed for micro-segmentation of CCTV and VoIP devices in certain areas without the need for additional hardware.

Based on my previous experience with other vendors, Cisco is worlds apart. I can manage every feature I need with great flexibility.Other vendors that only provide web UI, limited functionality exists.The other benefit is that since Cisco has been a strong player for so long, their training is being done in some high schools now expanding the knowledge to more of the workforce.

TAC is awesome but we have had a few techs that were unaware of what a specific product was.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Catalyst 1000 Series Switches

The decision for Cisco was mostly because the remainder of our infrastructure is already from Cisco. This allowed an easy integration and didn't require any training. Also, Cisco offers premium support--also in cases of a hardware fault for example.

Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches

We chose this equipment because it already has a Cisco equipment park that has excellent respect, reliability and security in the market. We really appreciate the technical support and warranty for troubleshooting if we have something wrong.

  • They just work. When expanding the network, we can be up and running quickly.
  • They're a little more expensive than other options but are more than worth it.
  • Always back up your configurations. We have had multiple examples where they lose them during upgrades.
