Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series Switches

The C9300-48P are used at our branch offices to connect all network devices in the branch office network.
  • StackWise technology.
  • Integrates with Cisco Prime Infrastructure.
  • The Cisco Bug CSCvi49725 C9300: Group of 4 ports stops forwarding traffic, making extremely disruptive downtime to business as usual, and causing difficulty to troubleshooting, driving up deployment costs.
  • The length of the switch is longer, even with standard power supplies, than the previous model, Cisco 3850. This makes them difficult to fit into tight IDF spaces.
  • Negative impact Cisco bug CSCvi49725 C9300: Group of 4 ports stopped forwarding traffic.
The Cisco bug CSCvi49725 C9300: Group of 4 ports stopped forwarding traffic, did not have any time saving, and caused a bad perception of an otherwise good product.

The customization and other capabilities were hindered from troubleshooting and patching the Cisco Bug CSCvi49725 C9300. Manageability of more than 100 9300 switches by Cisco Prime Infrastructure is a benefit.
I was not involved in comparing the Cisco Catalyst switch with other vendor switches.
The 9300 Series is the next generation of Catalyst Switches, and is well suited to replace switches in their end of life and with fewer features.
We've experienced CSCvi49725 Cisco bug C9300: A group of 4 ports stopped forwarding traffic, which is extremely service impacting with downtime and troubleshooting time. It's disrupting the upgrade projects of over more than 100 branch offices.
