Overall Satisfaction with Dell PowerConnect Switches

Dell Powerconnect Switches are used by Vivo's Infrastructure team for access and distribution. These are well-priced and cost-effective switching technologies. We use the 24 access door models, 1524 and the 48 access door model, 1548. Both have up to 10GB uplinks on SFP + port. They are great switches with good support too.
  • Quick support and service.
  • Performance.
  • The switch could have a copper uplink port.
  • The switch could have a 40Gb uplink port.
  • Increased edge security.
  • Fast and efficient on-site support.
It was chosen by Dell for the great cost-benefit that the equipment has. We have plenty of performance, security features, high-speed ports, high capacity uplink, native language support and warranty, great product technical documentation and especially for the price as well. We also had a recommendation from other friends who have used it for many years and have never reported any problems.
Top-grade because it is a switch that never presented any major problems for us. It has always been easy to install, configure, customize. It is a device widely used in access to connect computers, phones, access points.

Do you think Dell PowerConnect Switches delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Dell PowerConnect Switches's feature set?

Yes

Did Dell PowerConnect Switches live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Dell PowerConnect Switches go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Dell PowerConnect Switches again?

Yes

I believe the PowerConnect Switch is recommended and fits best in access and distribution for its capacity and performance. For Core, I would recommend the Dell Force 10 line. The switches have power over ethernet and can power IP phones and access points at Vivo branches. The support on the Portuguese line and face-to-face service are some differentials that I found.
