Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

We are using Cisco Catalyst Switches to build a modern, reliable, scalable, and secure LAN. This network needs to be flexible to accommodate our organization's needs and business demands. Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches perfectly address these requirements by extending the intent-based networking and simplifying the deployment of advanced technologies. From our current experience, we note that the Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series demonstrates a cost-effective solution as an access switch for sales offices, branches, or big production environments.
  • Resilient power and component redundancy
  • Hot-swapping uplinks
  • Access layer
  • The pricing--2960X cost less
  • DNA licensing model is not easy, and you cannot buy the switch without a subscription.
  • We have a stable production process and less downtime.
  • Easy to refresh and deploy, fewer FTEs and working hours
Hardware and configuration maintenance is much easier with DNA. We are not using automated device provisioning and SD-Access programmability yet, but actively looking into these opportunities.
We are not using automatic configuration and management yet but actively looking because it would help us to reduce engineers' utilization and save time for other projects and non-routine activities.
At the current moment, we are using Cisco 2960X as an access switch, and we decided to change our corporate standard and migrate to the Cisco Catalyst 9200 series. Currently, we are using two models: C9200L-24P-4G-E and C9200L-48P-4G-E, depending on the port needs.
