Catalyst Switches are reliable. We don't have major problems like lost connections, and we only have a minor issue with something every few months. In the last five years, a switch broke down once, and that was due to human error.
The best part is the single operating system that they have. Regardless of your model, it's the same operating system functioning across the board, which means you don't have to worry about backward compatibilities between your older switches and the new ones that you deploy.
The solution is stable.
Tech support is good.
We have these switches installed in an environment with hardware from many other vendors, and so far, so good.
Its throughout and compatibility are the most valuable.
The solution has inspection firewalls that can do a deep packet inspection on a port basis.
The stability has been largely pretty good.
The solution is very stable.
