Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

We use Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches for our LAN segments in connecting our endpoints with our enterprise networks, both local and wide area. They provide us the redundancy and scalability in having multiple segments in each of our locations to be able cross function. Being able to grow or stack and standardize on hardware and firmware platforms for management is crucial for our success.

Pros

  • Being able to provide scalability
  • Redundancy to prevent outages
  • Standardization to minimize administration costs and time

Cons

  • Cost and licensing
  • Technical support assistance
  • Resilency
  • Operating costs
  • High lead times
We employ over 5,000 devices in our enterprise and use numerous tools and automation for administration, configurations, deployment, and remediation. We also use a few tools to manage, monitor, and expand uses within our environment.
Our business tends to utilize most of the manageability options using Cisco DNA, SNTC, and other internal products.
We have explored other switches like Aruba, Extreme, and Brocade, but nothing compares to the business case of Cisco equipment in an enterprise environment.
