al existir diferentes tipos de empresas de varios tamanos y objetivos los SW catalyst permiten esa versatilidad de funciones para seguir creciendo, puede darse el caso que se requiera agregar un nuevo sw y sin problema este puede desplegarse en la red o en un stack complemento a los equipos existentes.

As there are different types of enterprises of different sizes and objectives, the SW catalyst allows for versatility of functions so as to continue to grow, it may be the case that is required to add a new switch, and without problem this can be deployed in the network or in a stack as a complement to the existing equipment.

Cisco Catalyst 9200 - the next generation access layer

Score 9 out of 10

We use them on client sites at the access layer devices, primarily for user PCs, phones and normal peripherals such as wireless access points. As they support POE+ we can power devices such as the latest access points. They are stackable and I like the fact there are two different stack options depending on whether you choose the modular or 9200L versions.
  • Access layer
  • Redundant power
  • Support with the network essential license level
  • Being able to stack different models together
These devices are particularly well suited to be deployed at the access layer where we need high density, stackable devices. The backplane is big enough fo this use case and with a 10 GB uplink to the core provides sufficient bandwidth for end-user clients. These devices have enough POE to support a wide range of devices such as the latest access points.

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches Review

Score 9 out of 10

The Cisco 9200 has solved our HA requirements very easily, with the VSL all the task to deliver ports, configuration service delivery, and support for operations. We are waiting for our first upgrade, but we expect it to be simple and fast. I had the opportunity to upgrade a pair of switches at the Cisco Live, and experienced almost zero downtime.
  • Virtual stack link, configuration always with HA
  • Port channels
  • Enterprise switch solutions for a critital network
  • More frequent versions and improvement
  • The reload without XFSO is very slow
9200 is great for high availability scenarios, but if your team doesn't have the resources to complete all the configurations, even the physical ones, there is no opportunity to make a 9300 implementation. For mission critical scenarios the 9200 is a good option because of the capacity.

New Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches rock

Score 9 out of 10

We are using Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches for access switches in a factory and office environment across the company. It can also serve to give a network to printers and access points on the PoE switches. We are using our stack to distribute a huge amount of network access to the users. This way, it's easy to manage, upgrade, and it's more scalable.
  • Ease of use.
  • PoE performance.
  • The hardware is faulty sometimes (faulty stack cable is generating errors on the switch).
  • There are too many bugs in the new version.
I think Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches (2960X series or new 9200L) are a good compromise between performance and price. They are not so expensive and are giving a very good performance for our end-users.
Now the new 9200 Catalysts can provide multi-gig connections so that the new access point can have a faster debit rate.

A new cheaper version of the 9300 that can save you some money

After a couple of months of testing, we decided to change our hardware standard from 9300 to 9200 switches for the LAN side. Usually every 4-5 years, we change all the catalysts in the entire organization. At the moment we use 3850/9300 and just started the installation process of the new 9200. As access layer
switches, we use them to connect users.
  • Stacking is still one of the biggest advantages for this series of catalyst.
  • With basic configuration, they are quite stable. So you can apply the configuration and forget about them.
  • They are quite new, so it's rather easy to find bugs in early firmware versions.
  • The price is still too high for just an access switch.
In a Cisco environment, buying access switches of the same vendor is almost a must, but sometimes it could be also a good idea not to be locked with one vendor only. This really depends on the company and the environment. In general, access switches are a good fit to connect users and it's not suggested to use them for servers.

We are using these switches in our warehouse in some elevated IDF's. We have large quantities of patch panel ports that need to be connected so we went with the 48 port switches. We have full POE switches so we can power phones , APs, and any other device that needs to be powered. We needed to have a switch that can be data stacked with high port capacity and is reasonably priced since it was going into our warehouse.
  • They can be data stacked which is a huge plus when needing multiple switches in a cabinet.
  • These switches are able to do POE on every port which is great so we can plug any device into the switch POE or not and it will work for that device.
  • It has a network modular slot where you can add a copper or fiber modular and they have an option for port count too. It is nice to have options so you can get the right port for the deployment.
  • They are always coming out with patches and updates. Seems like every month we are being contacted to upgrade.
  • These can be pretty expensive.
If you have other Cisco devices like APs or phones that connect to these Switches they work well together for example you can add a phone VLAN and the switch can recognize that a phone is connected and put them on a certain VLAN. If you are needing high port density at a lower cost these would be a switch I would go with. If you are looking for high throughput with more advanced routing these would not be the switches I would use. These are great for connecting computers, APs, phones and other standard network devices.

The catalyst to my network!

We use our Cisco Catalyst Switches across our district at over 30+ different sites.
  • Mobility agent.
  • Routing and switching.
  • Boot time - Currently the 3850's take about 15-20 minutes to power on.
  • Hardware - We have quite a few fans going out on our 2960x.
Every day it seems we are adding new devices to our network and our switches have been able to handle the smallest devices to the most complex ones. These devices include Rainbird sensors, HVAC sensors, access points, computers, etc. They are able to handle the complex switching as well as supporting the various PoE requirements.

The best performance to access the network

We use Cisco Catalyst Switches for all models to access, distribution and core. We increase network performance and security.
  • Excellent performance.
  • Intuitive web administration.
Cisco Catalyst Switches 9200 are the best option for network access, the performance is the best; but for core we prefer use the 9400 Series.

Switches that are flexible!

We use Catalyst Switches internally, and we sell them as part of our solutions for our clients. We also use them as part of our LaaS consumption based offerings.
  • Huge amount of features and options, allowing flexibility
  • Redundancy in power, stacking and virtualisation
  • Rich set of software features
  • Often very expensive
  • Complex for new users
Cisco Switches are great where there is a unique requirement, such as in health for end to end QoS, security and redundancy.

Cisco is doing a great job, on the sw and hw delivery and support... The catalyst product gives the customer confidence and stability..We feel very safe in using it... keep the good job...
  • Easy installation. I personally recently installed around 60 Cisco Catalyst switches. The IT department is very happy with it...all easy and no outages.
  • Power consumption wire closet. We recently changed around 60 Catalysts and we didn't have to change our power system. Very stable the switches and low power consumption...
  • Low fan noise...stable and good cooling system. We lost a.c. on our close but the stack is still working for long hours and did not lose connection.
  • Excellent team support
  • More intelligences...
  • More storage capacity
Have none that is not appropriate. I think it can be suited on any company's scenarios, based on what you need on your net.
