The Cisco switch series in general far exceeds the quality and reliability of the 3Com switches I have used in the past. The fiber port G-Bic modules do not seem to communicate from a 3Com switch to a Cisco switch in my experience. That is possibly just in the models and switch types I was using at that time. The new Ubiquiti switches and equipment really have exceeded my expectations in quality and reliability. If I had to switch to a different brand of network gear, it would be Ubiquity at this time.

We are considering choosing a cheaper solution when we need to change out our network devices. Cisco switches offer great redundancy and stable work, but the overall price for such a small organization as ours is a bit excessive.

Cisco is very strong in hardware and software compared to other vendors in the current market. We have benefited more from Cisco switches, compared to other switches. Mainly, implementation and usage will be very easy compared to the other ones. They are very fast.

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches could handle more bandwidth and are more stable compared to the NETGEAR Ethernet Switches. The Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches are more pricy. I feel the price is worth it when you out weigh the pros and cons of the system, as reliability is very important for the smooth operation of a technology business.

These 2960's are great switches for management, wireless, and WAN implementations. I could see these switches being used as access layer switches as well. There are some benefits for the 2960 over other switches, but I'll leave those advantages to Cisco, as they know the in's and out's better than a user such as myself.

Cisco is famous for its excellent hardware and software which makes the difference between it and its competitors. The compatibility that Cisco gives with almost all the market solutions makes a big difference, too. Also you can find a lot of documentation on the web that will help you in case you need it.

These devices are used in my organization as access layer equipment. Tests were carried out on these devices with 3750 equipment and were not functional for large capacity issues. Therefore, stack batteries were removed and replaced with 2960X stack batteries, but only as an access layer because they do not have several capacities that we require for our organization.

For many years now Cisco Switches have been the pinnacle of network switches. They continue to provide industry-leading quality that is unmatched by any other switching competitor in the market. Yes, some competitors make cheaper switches, but the Cisco switches provide many enhanced features and capabilities that make them stand out above the rest. Troubleshooting issues on Cisco switches are so much easier than on any other competitors' switch.

We have tried HP switches, Brocade and are beginning to test Juniper edge devices to compare to our Cisco Catalyst switches. The other brands can often match the features that are essential to our networks. They typically can be configured similarly but often take a bit more work to provide what is needed. Some of the brands can even be obtained for lower cost, but the support of the product is where we feel that the value lies in the Cisco product. We are still actively testing and comparing the offering from some of the vendors mentioned but feel that we get good value out of our investment in Cisco Catalyst switches.
