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

I am a fan of the Ruckus ICX switching portfolio and often position them to my customers. They're biggest advantage is that they have centralised management from a web interface which is much easier to use than having to remember complex command line interfaces such as Cisco, HP and Dell.

  • Their rack mounting was not the prettiest in the world

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.

The switching holds up well against HP, Extreme, Juniper, et. al at the edge. Cost is also a huge factor, and played a part in the purchase. Not just for the switches themselves, but also optics can be purchased at a discount. Service delivery has been fantastic, and in 3 years I've not had to replace any of the brocade switches I've purchased.
