Nexus 9000 Series

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Nexus

We are using Nexus to download telecommunications services to each city (voice, video, and data). My area of ​​expertise is digital vide. Nexus is very useful for us when it comes to propagating multicast in multiplexers and QAM edge equipment, using spanning trees to avoid emissions that saturate the network, and when I tried processing of the computers.
  • Higher bandwidth
  • Better speed in ports
  • Scalability
  • Igmp v3 problem
  • Problem with balancing in Po
  • Problem with fabric modules
  • Greater data processing
  • Stability in service
  • Voice video and data service fidelity
The joint work with the aforementioned products splices in such a way that no major difference is noticed. The protocol versions and speeds are identical, so it can be said that we work with fully scalable equipment which helps the performance of our network. Every day we have a greater number of clients who require high-quality services.

Did implementation of Cisco Nexus Series Switches go as expected?

No

Would you buy Cisco Nexus Series Switches again?

Yes

It is a great advantage to work with Nexus over Catalyst since many of the bugs that caused service degradation were solved in the new versions of Nexus. Improvements are still needed as I have presented problems never seen before and require access from Cisco engineers to be able to solve the problems.

Cisco Nexus Support

In our company, we work 24/7, and many times we need valuable help late at night due to totally degraded services. It is necessary to contact Cisco engineers associated with our company network so that they can find a root cause, something that is not known. This is achieved with foreign engineers.
