Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Catalyst 9600 Series Switches

We used catalyst 9600 as a distribution switch on an enterprise network. The switch is very useful because it resolves the problem of fast packet commutation in the distribution layer.
  • Fast packet commutation.
  • High port speed.
  • Hardware with high level of reliability.
  • Very hight price
  • Stability of VSS
  • It is desirable that the switch improve the troubleshooting process with some integrated tools.
  • The switch is very reliable and for that reason, the operation of a business is very stable and without interruptions.
  • Because it is relatively easy to use, the organization doesn't need very highly qualified engineers.
  • Because of is high price, it is not so good ROI.
Our organization takes great advantage of the time-saving automation because as I mentioned we don't need many engineers to administrate.
We don't take many advantages of customization, but, in the case of manageability, the advantage is great.
Well, I always will choose the Cisco Catalyst Switches over any other vendor because of its level of reliability.
