The Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches are well suited on all environments, that are used for low latency and high bandwidth usage. They are not that "strong" and scalable as Cisco Nexus switches, but it is OK so they are not suited for data center environments. They are best suited for user or access point access, or sensors/micro computers.

The typical scenario in which Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches are well suited is an access-layer usage. They support all the needed features to ensure fast connectivity as well as enhanced security for end-users/end-points. I think that they would not be suited in a backbone layer or WAN layer scenario as there are other series that would be more relevant.

With the current global economic crisis, most customers' budgets have shrunk and they look for other cheaper products that do not compromise their availability but still provide good service. This product is more appropriate for environments where customers want to get the most benefits of Cisco SD/Access architecture and already have Cisco WLCs and ISE solutions.

The Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches work really well. They are premium models compared to other vendors, but their capabilities are many and very scalable. They are okay for an access layer in SMBs but they do scale up and are stackable and work well with other products with minimal issues or extra configuration. They can also be used as core switching depending on the models you pick.

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series will fit perfectly in large campus networks in Software Defined Network and classic - manual - configuration scenarios. They are less appropriate in small, simple environments, like SMB sector due to their price in comparison with less features vendors.

The topology used in our organization with the Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches is Access. In the Core, the organization uses the Catalyst 3850 model with SFP+ ports. The Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches interconnect up to the Catalyst 3850 via 10G SFP+ fiber optics. Access points plug into switches and provide wireless network access for the organization. The switch is easily managed via CLI and web software from anywhere by our IT. During the first year, there was no need to open a ticket to technical support.

A suitable scenario for this switch solution with Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches is recommended at the edge and distribution. In smaller scenarios it can even be a Core because it has advanced layer 3 routing functions such as OSPF, RIP, EIGRP. The Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches is useful for connecting workstations, access points, telephones, printers and other switches. We used the Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches with POE in our scenario and created a secure network with VLAN segmentation.

As I mentioned earlier,i used Cisco catalyst switch to implement a voip architecture and it was my first time with this technology but luckily because of Cisco catalyst switch it made things easier for me , the configurations command were easy to learn and user friendly also the documentation,when I had errors i would seek knowledge from forums online but most of the time reading Cisco's documentation is enough.

It is a must for any data center purely from space and management prospective. Easy integration process and Cisco support is the best in the market. Longer life with good reliability and durability. High availability of the ports and better management of the data flowing across. Its is really fast and have advance features for the console admins

Due to the lack of capability for routing capacity, they are best suited for user connectivity rather than being employed as infrastructure middle switches or provider edges. In this circumstance, we often employ them at the user edge despite the fact that they have limited bandwidth capability. They would not be appropriate in a backbone layer or WAN layer situation, in my opinion, since there are other series that are more pertinent.

Well like I said they're well suited for user connectivity rather than being used for infrastructure middle switch or provider edge due to the lack of routing capacity support. Moreover, they lack bandwidth capacity but they are good suites for user connectivity, we use them generally in this scenario at user edge.

The Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches are a good fit for access layer needs. Put them on the edge of your network and you will have what you need to connect a physical device to your network. I would not deploy them in places at the core of a network. They can be used in data centers as an edge connection device.

It's easy to start using Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches and even to provide an effective and secure network even the distribution of networks across the company through Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches are amazing. The network performance is nice and it allows easy data monitoring and data sharing through secure data environment created through Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches functionalities and the reports are very clear.

Cisco Catalyst 9200S Series Switches is well suited for access level network deployments and extendable for many features such as 802.1x and etc. Anyone can utilize this as a dynamic switch with cisco ISE and use it in different dynamic scenarios with great customizability. Better to not use this switch for the core or data center consolidation level.

We are more secure and relaxed about the LAN network after we installed the Cisco 9200. For us, the topology in the Core of the network is enough to support our demand and the number of existing users. Through the CLI we created the data, voice, and guest trunk VLANs and created a portal authentication system integrated with Cisco ISE. Cisco's Smartnet support system is highly efficient for firmware updates and talking to engineers about topology, configurations, and questions.

Cisco Catalyst 9200 switches are suited for most nowadays escenarios and SMB needs.

They provide enough PoE to power IP cameras, LED lights, door locks, sensors, WiFi radios that are common in most work/office spaces these days. Cisco Catalyst 9200 also support gigabit and multi-gigabit connections that ensure networks will support technologies like WiFi 6, which requiere higher bandwidth.

They are less suited for Core applications such as Datacenter.

Integration and centralized management with Cisco DNA software is simplified and keeps all installed Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches controlled and managed from a graphical dashboard, alerts and notifications, and unified management. The Cisco 9200 Series Switches is very performant with high processing power and throughput of 160Gbps and stacking of several units in the access racks. We created different security rules with VLANs in order to segment the network, reduce broadcast, and improve logical security.
