Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Catalyst Switches
Cisco switches are used widely in our organization across different functions and divisions, the problems that we have resolved using the Cisco is VLAN and we have created separate VLANS for different departments like marketing and operations and production. The performance of Cisco are far more than any other competitor in the market.
- VLAN creations
- POE with redundant power source
- Always on feature
- Firmware and patch upgrades
- Expensive , suitable for large organizations in terms of monetary
- Limited knowledge staff
Virtualization of our network makes our life easier and we are using it as our core switch and now even in extreme traffic existing switches will cope the network traffic easily. The scalability of the network and VLANs are so much easier in the current environment that we hope that in near future we will easily upgrade our existing infrastructure.
Since we use it as our core switch, we use it to manage all our VLANS and part of our routing and it provides great flexibility to accomplish that. We also use some port security capabilities.

Multi domain authentication to allow the PC and IP phone to work on the same port.
