"The solution is easy to implement and quick to deploy."
"The most valuable feature is load balancing."
"Catalyst Switches perform very well, and the network is stable."
"It's got one feature, and that's handling extreme temperatures."
"These switches are very stable. We haven't had any problems. We also have some old switches that are working for almost ten years."
"The best feature is the technical support."
"It can be expanded."
"The operating system is great."
"It is stable, and it fulfills our needs. We have all the functions we need, so we're totally satisfied."
"The GUI makes it easy to configure, manage, and work with."
"This is a very reliable solution."
"The user interface is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us."
"The user interface is simple to use."
"We have found the solution to be entirely stable."
"The web page interface is very convenient and easy to use for setting up your feedback loops."
"The most valuable features are the price and the warranty."
"The price could be better. For Cisco, there is no need for improvement except for the price. It's expensive."
"The user interface needs improvement. Meraki has a much nicer UI. Cisco could learn a lot by looking at them. It might make them a bit more user friendly."
"I think that the price should be cheaper and they should include at least one year of basic service for technical support for each product, and not just the 90 days from the time of purchase."
"The price is something we would definitely like improved. It would be nice if it was more economical."
"Cisco Catalyst Switches do not have an open architecture and you have to buy into the Cisco architecture to be able to use them."
"Personal automatization is a feature that should be addressed."
"The price can definitely be lower."
"The solution could improve by adding a user-friendly GUI. We use third-party applications for log monitoring that are expensive and if Cisco could provide log monitoring as part of this solution it would be beneficial."
"The solution should offer different gigabit interfaces. Right now, they have ten gigabits. However, for our needs, we only need one gigabit. We don't need 24 or 48 ports. We only need eight to ten. HPE should introduce into their portfolio some smaller and more compact options."
"Our customers are focused on features and generally, they would like to have a more feature-rich solution."
"The dashboards could be improved to be more interesting."
"I would like to see some kind of packet tracer where people can study how the switch is operating."
"There should be faster interfaces on the switch, such as 25 gigabits."
"Since we transfer from one gigabit to ten gigabits of information, in a future release, it would benefit to have more high-speed ports."
"These switches can be made more stable and robust."
"I would like to see integration with HPE OneView."
