Likelihood to Recommend

Dell PowerConnect Switches

I believe the PowerConnect Switch is recommended and fits best in access and distribution for its capacity and performance. For Core, I would recommend the Dell Force 10 line. The switches have power over ethernet and can power IP phones and access points at Vivo branches. The support on the Portuguese line and face-to-face service are some differentials that I found.

Cons

Dell PowerConnect Switches

  • I've had fans burn out after the warranty period. In a way that is a positive and tells you just how long the fans last. However, it would be nice if the fans lasted a bit longer.
  • In a perfect world, it would be nice if the switches were not so loud.

Top-grade because it is a switch that never presented any major problems for us. It has always been easy to install, configure, customize. It is a device widely used in access to connect computers, phones, access points

Alternatives Considered

Dell PowerConnect Switches

They stack up very well against Cisco products. I feel you pay a lot for the Cisco name. Dell has most of the same functions for a lot less.

Return on Investment

Dell PowerConnect Switches

  • The ROI is great. Lost of ports and features for the money.
  • The Dell PowerConnect has allowed us to interconnect our core networking devices for a reasonable price.
