We have used the 2960 as access switches and the 3560 for their layer3 functions so that we are using each device in what it does best. They can tolerate unfavorable environmental situations, but it's not recommended.-------Hemos utilizado los 2960 como switches de acceso y los 3560 para sus funciones de capa3 de manera que estamos utilizando cada equipo en lo que hace mejor, son incluso bien tolerantes a situaciones ambientales no favorables, aunque no es los recomendable.

al existir diferentes tipos de empresas de varios tamanos y objetivos los SW catalyst permiten esa versatilidad de funciones para seguir creciendo, puede darse el caso que se requiera agregar un nuevo sw y sin problema este puede desplegarse en la red o en un stack complemento a los equipos existentes.As there are different types of enterprises of different sizes and objectives, the SW catalyst allows for versatility of functions so as to continue to grow, it may be the case that is required to add a new switch, and without problem this can be deployed in the network or in a stack as a complement to the existing equipment.

  • Stacking is still one of the biggest advantages for this series of catalyst.
  • With basic configuration, they are quite stable. So you can apply the configuration and forget about them.

Cons

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

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.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches

Cisco Switches stacks up because it is easy to deploy, configure and manage. It is stable and booting is quite fast. Cisco provides a set of up to eight stacking capable switches. Cisco Catalyst switches are the best network device that we can use in our company. The support with Cisco TAC team is the best.

We selected the 9200 because of the setup. The virtual stack supports the HA capabilities and maintains the cluster instance in case of failure. The 9200 is a great switch.
