Cisco Catalyst Switches are used in access LAN (layer 2) in all our branches. The switches are very stable. We are using them in stack and to connect to Cisco ISE. The switches have a lot of security features. For our organization, what is really important is the Enhanced Limited Lifetime Warrant...

      Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches are ideal for access layer switches in situations where stackable switches are required to have full PoE and a high port density.

        Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches are ideal for LAN deployments in branch offices, out-of-the-box closet installations, and conventional work areas. The wide range of port options makes them ideal for small or home-based offices.

          Cisco Catalyst 2960-X/XR Series Switches are well suited at LAN campuses, as well as locations where high throughput and stability is of utmost importance. Stacking and future fitting for PoE+ is also one of its strengths. It's less suited for situations where budget is key and enterprise type se...

            Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches are very well suited for the corporate environment where service and business are critical, taking no changes. In my opinion, I would not use it in the smaller organizations where there are no SLA critical services, as it eats into the bottom end where maybe a ...

              We use it for our LAN network to interconnect our users to access file servers, email, print servers, business software etc. The Cisco switches are equipped with PoE capability which allows us to connect our IP Phones and Wifi APs which are PoE enabled thus saving us costs on installing additiona...

                The Cisco Catalyst Switches are a perfect solution for Offices of big or medium-sized companies where manageability and reliability are very important. They are very good for deployment and management with automation tools. Due to their price, they are not the best fit for small companies that ha...

                  We currently utilize a mixture of Catalyst 2960X and 3560CX switches at our edge in 42 locations throughout our county. Overall we have over 900+ catalyst switches deployed. The biggest thing they address for us is the Auto SmartPort feature that provisions edge ports based off of MAC OUI. This a...

                    It is easy to configure and it is very straightforward. You can segment departments on plans and also configure routing protocols well suited for the organization. Also, DHCP can also be configured but in the case of our organization, DHCP is usually configured on a Windows Server.

                      Cisco Catalyst is best suited for medium to large enterprises. If you have a SOHO, save your money and buy a cheaper switch. However, in medium and large companies where business continuity and SLA's must be met, you can't go wrong buying Cisco Catalyst.

                        Cisco Catalyst Switches' ability to handle loops and BPDU Guards is unmatched in my opinion. We heavily rely on this functionality to mitigate some layer 2 issues we sometimes face.

                          We having being using the Catalyst 2960 switches for years. They are very reliable. We use them as part of our CCNA, CCNA Security & CCNP Route course. They provide a "virtual" solution for students who can be on different routed networks.

                              We currently use Cisco Catalyst Switches as our standard enterprise and WAN switch solution. They connect almost 100 WAN sites, 2,000 VOIP phones, and 300 wireless access points. The business services that we provide would cease to function without the catalyst switch.

                                I'm not sure of a situation where Ruckus ICX switches wouldn't be appropriate unless you work in a very small company where you only have one or two switches and don't need managed (smart) switches. For every other situation, I think the switches are robust enough and certainly cost-effective eno...
