Return on Investment
- I like the way Catalyst implements VLANs; very easy and straightforward.
- The flexibility of the modules that can be added to the Catalyst switches of the 9300, 9500 (line cards) and 3850 series is impressive. These switches are capable of speeds of 10/25/40/100 GB, which means that instead of replacing a switch, simply update the module. This has saved and helped us tens of thousands of times in recent years.
- The reliability and great technical support substantially cut down on the amount of attention these switches require. Often we find our selves forgetting the switches are even there because they "just work". Dependability like that is in my opinion priceless.
