VLAN management to segment network traffic is essential for some environments and simply convenient for others. The ability to secure certain kinds of traffic is easily achieved in the switch management. Another nice feature the CLI provides is several security features that can be assigned (per port or with a range).

The great benefit is to control devices on the network even if they are in remote offices. We enjoy this benefit because all of the remote offices are controlled and configured by the central office, by the central IT management team. Once the switch is configured and set up, it is running and doing everyday duties remotely and all future configurations and changes are managed remotely.

We are benefitting from customization and manageability because Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches are able to do a faster implementation compared to other switches and copy an existing configuration from an existing switch to the new switch easily (and modify based on our requirements). It is very easy to manage the switch remotely.

The customization and manageability of the network switches are extremely helpful when integrating the Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches. It was extremely easy to reconfigure the switch when the company was moved from one location to another, and the adaptability of the network switch helped a lot in getting the network up and running in no time.

We greatly benefit from the advanced customization and manageability with our 2960's. We use some advances switching features, as well as some basic routing features as well. We don't do any routing on our WAN switches, but we do routing on our management switches that connect to the management interface on all of our other networking devices.

At the moment, to do a new implementation we are benefitting from customization and manageability because Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches are able to do a faster implementation and copy existing configuration from an existing switch.

Our organization has not benefited from these features but our customers who have purchased these switches have been able to benefit from the features. Our customers have reported that the intuitive web UI and Flexstack cables provide them with ease of management as they only need to manage a single switch.

yes, we have a hardening template we customize all of our switches with resulting in a more secure configuration than one right out of the box. We remotely manage everything so that functionality is a must for us and allows us to serve clients remotely with ease.

We feel that we benefit from the abilities of the catalyst line by the leveraging the stacking capabilities of the switches to enable us to achieve the needed port density in a given closet. We like that we can pick and choose the features and various hardware configurations needed for an implementation to get exactly what we need and not have to get extra features that aren't necessary.
