To be honest, we didn't really look very hard at any other network switch providers since we are already a heavy Cisco shop. Cisco has treated us well over the years by providing solid support, excellent reliability, and advanced security options that are top notch. One of the companies that we acquired did have a pair of Arista 7000 switches, so we did have to manage those for 18 months during the transition off of their network. The CLI and GUI on the Arista were pretty painful to use.

Cisco is embedded into our environment, introducing a new vendor takes time from supply chain, development, NERC CIP certification, and IT support perspectives. We will look at these options in the future so we can be flexible when Cisco is no longer the right fit for our organization.

We ran a proof of concept for HPE and Cisco switches. Cisco won out due to the following:
  • Cisco's positive track record of previous Catalyst switch platforms we've had experience with (2900, 4500, 6500).
  • Large TCAM space to support large ACLs used to lock down endpoint access.
  • Cisco's community is large so it's typically easy to find answers online to questions we have about design, installation, or troubleshooting.
  • Catalyst 9000 is a newer platform than Aruba's switches that were perceived as re-branded HP Procurve switches, which have been around longer. While we can't say for sure this will amount to better ROI, we certainly felt like we'd get more life out of the Cisco 9000s.
  • ROI for Aruba Mobility Access Switches was low due to an unexpected EoS/EoL announcement, affecting our campus access switch deployment. This forced us to replace Aruba MAS switches sooner than expected, leaving a bad taste in our mouth.

We have Cisco Catalyst 4510 switches in some other facilities. While those work well, the Catalyst 9400 switches are several leaps ahead in terms of performance and usability. All of the Catalyst 9000 series use the same operating system which makes them easier to configure than the dis-contiguous Catalyst 3850s and 4500s.

Some older moduar and non-modular devices like 6500, 5000, 4500, 3500, 2900 even the 1900 and etc. Honestly said - I have contact with almost every version of catalyst in the last 10 years. I have also used Soho devices branded by Linksys and some Meraki devices but have no further experience with them.
