  • Durable hardware
  • Robust software
  • Compatibility
  • OS interface could be more user friendly.
  • Cost per switch could be reduced.
  • Although 1U design is good for tight spaces, a 2U design would allow our technicians more wiggle room in the data closets.

  • It won't crash easily
  • Nice routing and IP features
  • Prevent loops in your network
  • Detect rogue DHCPs
  • Please bring dual power supplies to some Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches because sometimes, 1 PS is not enough

  • Stability--very, very rarely do they need a reboot or have any issues
  • They provide consistent gigabit speeds with virtually no packet loss
  • Easy CLI management
  • Can also be managed via the GUI--Cisco Network Assistant
  • Integration with newer technologies like Meraki
  • Ports tend to turn off when firmware is updated
  • GUI access should be improved; the network assistant doesn't allow you to do everything
