Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX Series Switches

They are best suited for edge switching applications. We do have a couple in the data center doing legacy copper VM hosts that perform ok. But edge switching is most definitely the best suited, at least in our specific situation. I know that some of the higher end catalyst switches have the ability to do layer 3 functionality, but that's not something that we've personally delved into with the catalyst line.

We are extremely happy with the Cisco Catalyst series and don't have any reason to switch. As long as we continue to get great use and service out of the products we'll continue to use them for the foreseeable future.

Cisco by and far does a great job with the Catalyst line. From a layer 2 dumb switch all the way up to ISP carrier grade switching within the Catalyst portfolio. The best part about it is command parity among the various tiers of product. The only differences are going to lie in what features are available per switch.

So far we haven't had very many support issues with our Catalyst switches. When we have had issues TAC is always a pleasure to work with. They're prompt, knowledgeable, and take ownership of the case from open to close. Also, this isn't attributed to Cisco support directly. But because they are so widely known and have such a great market share you can find a solution to almost any issue with a quick internet search.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX Series Switches

The Cisco Catalyst switch is a robust switch and has a long lifespan regardless of the cost. it is easy to deploy and configure as a layer 3 device. As compared to other devices like Juniper Switch, it is easy to configure on the network.

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

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.

Return on Investment

Cisco Catalyst 3560-CX Series Switches

  • Expansion has been made in our organization. We recently use a 24 port switch but as the company grew, we required a more robust switch
  • Core switches are able to do MPLS to reach other locations
  • Most switches are now 48 port and support fiber ports not only Gigabit ports

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

  • Customers love Cisco Catalyst switches as they perform great and capable of all fulfilling all customer needs. A single switch can perform as router/switch/poe/trunks/multicast (For overhead paging. school bell system etc.)
  • With frequent IOS upgrades always ready to support day 1/ 0 day equipment. ROI impact is very positive.
