D-Link Ethernet Switches

The focus of the equipment is SoHo, that is, small businesses or companies and even domestic use. It meets these scenarios very well. Using for large scale, they can present difficulties to maintain throughput, that is, its use in large networks can be difficult to maintain.
Another issue to be taken into account is technical assistance, they are not as agile as the competition.

Huawei Ethernet Switches

Huawei switches are ideal for cases where performance is not essential, for low traffic solutions and for equipment management. It is not recommended for situations of high performance and stress, immediate availability and high scalability. It is also not advisable to use them in solutions that involve hardware from other brands, the integration of Huawei with Cisco, for example, is very traumatic and the results were not optimal in my case.

Huawei Ethernet Switches

  • One of our switches encounted a hardware defect after 6 months of use (but was replaced within warranty)
  • The switches appear to get hotter than what I would expect under normal use

D-Link Ethernet Switches are working fine and fulfill all of our organization's needs cost-wise and efficiency-wise. The rating that I gave would vary based on performance and durability. We used an open environment without an IP-rated network rack, but its working fine and we handle all weather issues carefully and manage the network smoothly. Takeaways: cost effective, handles complex networks, and very good performance.

I have given it 9 out of 10 just because of its low cost and additional features that have been an integral part of any product, otherwise, the load management part was far more inferior as compared to the Cisco switches, as those switches have a spanning tree protocol built-in.

Alternatives Considered

D-Link Ethernet Switches

They stack up great. In performance, Price, Physical style. I have been around many networks with a business that has spent three times as much on a network solution and Dlink matches up toe to toe. Has of now they are moving over to Cisco language. So this will improve the availability of engineers and support.

Huawei Ethernet Switches

The performance of Huawei is lower than Cisco, but initially the costs inclined the decision towards Huawei, but unfortunately, it was not, the licenses and the manager fired the investment to make it very similar to cisco. Therefore it is preferable to go to the Cisco switches for reliability and robustness.

Return on Investment

D-Link Ethernet Switches

  • Reduction of oscillations in the network caused by repeater equipment (which was replaced by D-links).
  • Low cost of implementation and acquisition, making it possible to acquire a sufficient quantity to meet the entire park and demand.
  • Due to its low price, we have no losses with maintenance, and can simply purchase other equipment for replacement.
