We have several Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches in our organization that are serving as access switches. They have been rock solid for us since we've had them.
  • They are simple to setup and maintain.
  • Once you have them configured, you won't have to touch them again. They just work!
  • The Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches are fanless, so they work perfectly in some of our more rugged locations.
  • We have not had any problems with these switches.
  • A positive ROI is that they simply work and are very, very stable.
  • There are no negative impacts. These switches are worth every penny.
We have not benefited yet from the time-saving automation. We are looking at this in the near future for our organization.
We have not messed with advanced customization or manageability yet, but it's on our radar.
We did not research any other switches. We have always liked Cisco Catalyst switches so have decided to stick with them.

Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches are well suited in areas where you may need multiple switches. They have the ability to stack, which is nice because essentially you just need to configure once switch and the rest get their config from the master. We have not found a scenario where we've needed a switch and not gone with a Cisco Catalyst.
