We use Adtran NetVanta switches to connect users to the LAN core. We use them company-wide at 14 locations, across multiple VLANs, and with a variety of equipment.
- In industrial environments, Adtran NetVanta switches are robust and have a very long lifetime.
- In office environments, Adtran NetVanta switches are low profile and easy to install.
- Adtran NetVanta switches have multiple options for mounting, racks or wall mount are equally simple and well implemented.
- Adtran NetVanta switches are Layer 3 lite, which can cause issues for more elaborate installations. If you're looking to connect multiple locations to a core switch they are perfect.
I would use Adtran NetVanta switches anywhere, industrial or office environments are equally well suited. Small networks with 20-100 users and a single gateway, or more elaborate networks with over 500 users and multiple routers and gateways, are both doable from the switch level, NetVanta switches are incredibly robust for the footprint.
