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

Cisco is a name well known in the IT field. The technology is tried and true and they have built a reputation on a solid platform. Though many people do not like the cost of the devices and the continued fees associated with long term ownership, you get what you pay for. I dont hesitate to recommend Cisco because I know people will get a solid product that will last a long time.

Pros

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

  • high forwarding // high forwarding
  • posee la capacidad de convertirse tambien en un WLC // Has the ability to become a WLC as well

  • capacidad de expansion con modulos adicionales // The ability to scale up/expand using additional modules

  • Easy setup and configuration. While the web UI has its quirks, setting up VLANs and other tasks which can be exceedingly complicated on other switches, are much easier on Cisco SG switches. You also have the ability to upload an existing configuration to switches, which can speed up the task of deploying many identical switches.
  • Features for the price. Getting a 48 port L3 switch with PoE+ for less than $2,000 is a great value.
  • Reliability. We have hundreds of the SG switches in dozens of client sites, many in harsh conditions, and they just keep going.

Cons

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

  • Que los precios sean mejorados para ser mas competitivos // More competitive prices/cost
  • Generar mas marketing y promocion de los nuevos equipos // Create more marketing and promotional features about new equipment
  • Liberar de licencias obligatorias en los equipos // Release obligatory licenses for businesses

  • The web UI has taken a turn for the worse with the latest firmware on the SGx50 models -- the bifurcation between basic and advanced modes and the changes to the way VLANs are modified is a step backward in my opinion.
  • The power bricks on smaller models are enormous. I'm sure, however, keeping this circuitry external to the switch is what keeps my switches running year after year in hot environments.
  • Fans can be a bit loud on larger switches -- this is true of pretty much any 1U device though.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Cisco Ethernet Switches

Cisco is more enterprise level, more reliable, and generally more feature rich but also very expensive. That being said old or refurbished Cisco switches are much more affordable and in comparison to even new switches from the competitor they are still a great value even though they are used. I like Ubiquiti switches as well but Cisco is usually better overall.

Cisco Ethernet Switches

  • Failure on Cisco Switches, from my experience, is rare in the first 5 years the device is up.
  • I have see the Cisco 6500 switches go 5 years without a reboot, which is nothing short of amazing.
  • The service that you get is top notch and available 24/7, and you really cannot put a price on that.
