Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches

The [Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches] are great switches for basic routing/switching. If you need a core for your campus, or even distribution layer switches, I would look elsewhere. These are great switches for user switches, printers, access points, etc. Also, this switch would be good to use as a WAN switch upstream of routers/firewalls.

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

Cisco [Catalyst 9200 Series] Switches work great. Most enterprises use cisco office equipment (Phones, Cameras etc. ), and switches work seamlessly with these products. Always full throughput on all ports, rarely any STP issues. Not well suited for small businesses (Costly) or in scenarios where network devices are not uniform/ multi vendor

Catalyst offers a wide range of switch solutions that have supported the needs that we have. Couple that with their relatively easy to use IOS interface, our staff is able to adequately manage these devices without needing advanced training. Cisco has also provided great support whenever there was a situation that we could not resolve concerning these switches.

I don't think very soon we'll renew our use of Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches because most of them are now used for access switch purposes for end-users.Even if we have a stack with a distribution switch (to use Uplink and to connect access points), the global LAN design can't be changed for now.

I have used CAtalyst switches for both access layer and core switch setups, and have always had a good experience with them. They have been super reliable switches, and I'll be using them in the future. The ease of use allows us to deploy these switches in a variety of setups without difficulty, and low turnaround time.

As usual, the Cisco documentation can be exhaustive, and it's not so easy to find the appropriate information on the website. However, when you are a bit used to it, the search can be possible and not so difficult.The first white paper that was comparing the 2960X with the 9200 equivalent was nice and saved us a lot of time and energy.

It is very important to have a checklist of the different deployment options before beginning. Normally you have to spend a 4-hour session with your implementation partner to get things to work faster. Remember they have the technical knowledge but not the business knowledge.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches

The Cisco Catalyst is THE series to use if you want to create stack within your network cabinet. It's really easy in terms of management and installation. As soon as you get familiar with Catalyst stack, you don't want to do something else. The only concern is about the upgrade, because if you have for example a stack of 8 48ports, you will bring down at the same time, potentially around 400 users, so you need to be careful and do it outside of business hours.

The 9200 switches are a great switch for reliability and processing. We use our 9200's for Layer 2 only switching, as well as use some 9200's in routing cases as well. The 9200's is a model number we use as our primary model number for upgrading our other switches like the 2960's and 3850's.
