Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches

  • Catalyst 2960-L Series
We are using Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches in our networks. They help make connecting in the environment easier and are easy to manage. I say that this is the best possible switch that I have used only because of the fact that management after initial set up is very intuitive and simple/easy. Also this switch does not have a fan and hence the usual noise associated with the fan is also missing. The good news is that it does not get heated up despite the lack of fan.
  • Easy to manage remotely
  • Reliability
  • Easy-to-use GUI
  • Noiseless
  • Price is high
  • Reliability
  • Reduce the implementation time
  • Longevity
We have benefited from time-saving automation and data analytics. We are using time-saving automation at the moment to expand our network devices. And we are using data analytics to see the traffic that is passing through the switches and get better information in case of issues with network performance.
We are benefitting from customization and manageability because Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches are able to do a faster implementation compared to other switches and copy an existing configuration from an existing switch to the new switch easily (and modify based on our requirements). It is very easy to manage the switch remotely.
Cisco is very strong in hardware and software compared to other vendors in the current market. We have benefited more from Cisco switches, compared to other switches. Mainly, implementation and usage will be very easy compared to the other ones. They are very fast.

Would you buy Cisco Catalyst 2960-L Series Switches again?

Yes

Easy to implement. These switches are really great and do an excellent job of bridging the gap between expensive switches and lower expensive SG model switches. I think there is a great value in this for your smaller branch offices. I have used NETGEAR, HP, and Alliance switches, and Cisco, by far, outperforms the others.
