Cisco 6800ia's Best Innovation: Cisco has Killed!

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • Centrally managed configuration and IOS via the attached 6880 catalyst pair.
  • POE+ support for newer Access Points and speaker requirements
  • Firmware rollout is very smooth and simple using upgrades to the 6880 "core"
  • There are some known bugs that cause interface errors and are listed as "cosmetic" and they do not plan to address them. This makes troubleshooting very difficult to determine what are real errors and what are cosmetic.
  • We have had a few batches that get stuck in random reboots.
  • Cisco foolishly has discontinued R&D for this line of Catalyst when they were finally showing some innovation that set them apart from other vendors.
