  • Mainly, if they have upgraded the option of that we have a dual power supply so that you don't need to turn it off if you have A and B power. That is one of the main things that we are using.
  • That's one thing that the price, it's quite more expensive than the one that it is replacing. We discovered that. That was one thing that I would say that would kind of be negative if I should say one thing.

  • Redundant power supply and fans. The priority is to keep the network always operational and available.
  • Modular uplinks with option to choose the type of port and desired speed. We chose SFP+ ports and used trasceivers and twinax cables to connect to servers and other switches.
  • Dynamic routing used to do routing between the internal network.
  • ACLs, QoS, MSTP, ARP Spoofing and other features we use.
  • Robust construction and excellent performance.
  • It does not have BGP routing capabilities.
  • It is expensive network equipment for smaller scenarios.

  • It is a model that has mGig ports that we use for high speed uplink ports.
  • Power of 740w in power over ethernet on all ports we use to power wireless access points.
  • We use the stacking feature to manage a switch stack in the datacenter with a single IP.
  • Smartnet warranty is something very valuable for support.
  • Switch with layer 2 and layer 3 and advanced routing.
  • Smartnet 8x5NBD is preferred over Smartnet 24x7 because it is more expensive.

  • High availability, the only down time is during maintenance.
  • Feature set, they do all the things we need in an access layer device.
  • Expandability, you can stack multiple switches together.
  • As with a lot of Cisco gear, price is always an area that could improve.
  • Initial power on time, a typical stack can take five minutes to power up.
  • More flexibility regarding network modules would be welcome.

  • End Device Connection
  • CLI Management
  • Switching capacity and visibility of events in the logs
  • vlan management
  • I can't find any point where this family of switches needs improvement.
  • in case of needing higher performance or specific characteristics, the superior families such as the 9300 or 9400 can be used
