D-Link Ethernet Switches

In our head office where there is a low dust environment, it best suits this use. But in a plant where there is a dusty environment, you may face in and outs and the Network team may be in a bit of a hurdle.

Cons

D-Link Ethernet Switches

  • Web interfaces. Really need to work on easier web interfacing for less "program savvy" users.
  • Needs a WAY BETTER management solution. This is where you can take one piece of software and manage every switch.
  • Maybe and this is stretching, an easier way to keep up with firmware and uploading them.

NVIDIA Mellanox Switches

  • Interoperability with other vendors

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.
