Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches

In our datacenter approximately one year ago, some Cisco 9200 switches were installed in the distribution and core and we interconnected to other access switches by fiber-optic and SFP+ connector. We create data, voice, and guest VLANs to segment the network and prevent broadcast and malicious external threats. The switch is perfect with great throughput, POE+ ports, fully CLI, and web management. Added additional 10G SFP+ port models for uplink with other access switches.

Pros

  • Additional modules containing 10G SFP+ ports.
  • Support QOS, VLANS, MSTP, layer 3 routing protocols.
  • Silent.
  • Redundant energy power supplies.
  • 16,000 MAC addresses.
  • Models with POE.

Cons

  • It could have a lower price and similar like the 2960S and 2960X.
  • Official training is expensive.
  • Network upgrade.
  • Improved processing performance.
  • Energy saving.
The company has benefited well from Cisco's switch management and security capabilities. Stacking reduces complexity because it allows the stack to be managed with a single IP. For those of us who don't have management software, it's very optimizable.
We customize the deployment and configuration according to our network and security rules such as VLANs, ACLs, stp, and routing. Cisco CLI is one of the best and easiest to use and configure. For us, it is a huge positive differentiator.

Do you think Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches's feature set?

Yes

Did Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches again?

Yes

We are more secure and relaxed about the LAN network after we installed the Cisco 9200. For us, the topology in the Core of the network is enough to support our demand and the number of existing users. Through the CLI we created the data, voice, and guest trunk VLANs and created a portal authentication system integrated with Cisco ISE. Cisco's Smartnet support system is highly efficient for firmware updates and talking to engineers about topology, configurations, and questions.
