Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

We are using our 9200's for multiple uses in our company. Different campuses use these switches for different purposes based on traffic load, availability, etc. In our main campus, we use our 9200's for lighter cases. Things like using the 9200's as a management switch, a switch for our printers and access points. Things that don't switch critical packets.
  • Reliability
  • DNA integration
  • Processing capabilities
  • Price
  • Great reliability means our uptime for application availability.
  • Great processing
  • Ability to integrate with DNA makes ease of administration across the organization.
We use our [Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches] with DNA for Assurance mainly. DNA can do more, and we will implement that later, but having the Assurance with our catalyst 9k's is excellent for our organization. We use the 9200's for a wide variety of uses, but being able to stack multiple 9200's together is an excellent feature.
We do use advanced customization and manageability with our 9200's through different methods. The primary way is through Cisco's DNA Center. We do have some 9200's that we have https enabled on for ease of configuration when we don't want to add the switch into DNA.
The 9200 switches are a great switch for reliability and processing. We use our 9200's for Layer 2 only switching, as well as use some 9200's in routing cases as well. The 9200's is a model number we use as our primary model number for upgrading our other switches like the 2960's and 3850's.

I really like the [Cisco Catalyst 9220 Series Switches] that Cisco released. I am very familiar with the Cisco catalyst 3850 that these new 9ks replaced. The webui (usually disabled) makes for ease of switch management and configuration. The ability to use these switches with DNA center is also great for production troubleshooting, configuration, assurance, and more.
