Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches

  • Catalyst 2960-L Series
Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches are used as network switches. Ours is a small- to medium-size startup, and it serves perfectly for ethernet connectivity. It is well designed and seems like a secure interface that can handle large enough bandwidth to support our day-to-day operations in the office. It is very reliable and we have not had any problems so far with the device.
  • Security is tight
  • Network connectivity has never been an issue
  • Troubleshooting and problem solving, including link connectivity
  • Upfront cost is high
  • Renewal of the the license needs to be done every two years
  • It is hard to stack certain models
  • Very stable system ensures smooth network connectivity
  • Speed is very important, as we route large amounts of data to the internal server
  • A lot of upgrades on the system--frequent updates obstruct work
We do not use these particular features of the Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches. I am not so capable of commenting on the usefulness of the feature.
The customization and manageability of the network switches are extremely helpful when integrating the Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches. It was extremely easy to reconfigure the switch when the company was moved from one location to another, and the adaptability of the network switch helped a lot in getting the network up and running in no time.
Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches could handle more bandwidth and are more stable compared to the NETGEAR Ethernet Switches. The Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches are more pricy. I feel the price is worth it when you out weigh the pros and cons of the system, as reliability is very important for the smooth operation of a technology business.
