Cisco Catalyst 6509-E - switch - desktop, rack-mountable 4.9 5 10 10
Amazing reliability, supports 10 Gb interfaces, supports POE blades, Redundant 4000W power supplies. What more could you ask for in a core network switch? March 31, 2014
Happy enough with mine that I actually got one for my homelab (yes, my lab is getting big enough to justify it)- excellent product, my only complaint is the weight September 9, 2013
this product is great really fast and very reliabkle but I thort it was over pricedI use it in a May 14, 2013
Excellent product. We've ran one for over 7 years without a single incidence of unscheduled downtime (and the only scheduled downtime we got with it was when we upgraded the supervisors from CatOS to IOS). November 30, 2011
Rock Solid! All around a great device! November 4, 2011
20 year service life, a bazillion PPS massive back plane, service modules for every random thing you can think of. The Nexus may beat it in packet pushing, but lacks its general versatility. These things are big, heavy, and the choice of many an carrier for their handoff's in data center's. October 22, 2011
Used several of these and they are solid performers. Did a deployment of a 10g fiber link with them and that was fun.Excellent product. July 14, 2011
Great product, fast and reliable. May 16, 2011
