The Cisco Catalyst 6800 switch is a chassis based switch which can be used within various network layers depending on your requirements. I have been involved in deploying it in the network core layer due to its performance, scalability and flexible network line cards options which this switch can be configured with.

We are using a stack of two Cisco Catalyst 6807 Switches as our main data center core switches. These things are big and beefy, with tons of ports and plenty of room for expansion. These things are great to efficiently move traffic throughout the network, with plenty of room to spare.

When I saw I had the opportunity to review one of our most expensive pieces of equipment on our system I jumped at the chance. Why? Well, it can be something you take for granted, but when you stop and think about the most important part of your network, you realize just how valuable having a solid device is. In a sentence, it solves a lot of our major networking, security, and stability problems in one.

The reason for going with the 6800 Catalyst core switch was to solve the business problem of having non-industry standard hardware that is less compatible with management systems. We wanted to reduce our overhead and allow our network engineers to focus on one vendor's products and learning those instead of having to deal with many.

I'm a systems admin at our place of business and about 4 years ago we switched from a Cisco 6509 to a new Cisco 6807. The upgrade was due to the age and limitations of the previous device. Moving to the [Cisco Catalyst 6800 Series Switches] allowed us to use more, expanded blades and dual supervisors to give us greater redundancy.

Used in our academic, administrative and residence hall buildings. We use them to connect all wireless access points and wired devices within the buildings. They provide us with 10G connectivity between data closets and 1G with UPOE out to the edge devices. Our clients want reliable dependable connectivity, and the Catalyst switches provide that for us.

We currently are using our Cisco Catalyst 6800ia switches in all of our edge closets. They provide power to access points, phones, cameras, and our bell speakers in our schools. They also provide data to our end users in labs, classrooms, and offices. We really like the fact that they are easily managed via their fx uplink to the 6880s in the MDF closets.

We are using various CISCO Catalyst switches across the whole company - from the backbone to the local offices. We find the Catalyst family very stable and trustworthy, having little to no issues running them in our network for over a decade. RSTP, IGMP, BGP, PIM, MVR - you name it, we've already done it on our Catalyst! Will continue to recommend to small and medium businesses.
