Use Cases and Deployment Scope
The Cisco 9300 series switches have become ubiquitous for in-office switching for us. While we rely on the larger Nexus switches for our datacenters, switching in the offices is handled entirely by the Cisco 9300's. These provide all office-switching for us, for phones, zero clients, videoconferencing units, servers, etc. They allow us to support multiple VLAN's per port, which works really well for us, as we have 1 port per desk at most desks. This allows us to daisy-chain our laptops or zero clients off of our Polycom phones, while still assigning the highly restrictive Voice VLAN per floor to the phone, and the workstation or zero client VLAN, to the laptop or zero clients, respectively.
