Product Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 35reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pros: streamlined and versatile solutions. Cons: expensive maintenance fees and they are slow with patches Valuable Features:Versatility and streamlined IOSAvailability of expertise on the market (resources)Improvements to My Organization:Streamlined IOS helped to develop templates for Ethernet Switches without worrying of compatibility of commands in regards to hardware platforms.Modularity of Industrial switches (IE3000) provides flexibility in solutions yet based on one platform.Vast array of Industrial models (IE2000, IE3000, IE4000, IE5000).Room for Improvement:Acceptance of open source trends (there is slight move already - just keep going)Use of Solution:10 years overall for all switching/routing products. Industrial switches for last 5 years.Deployment Issues:NoStability Issues:NoScalability Issues:Well, need more pro-active option to add PoE modules to Industrial switches.Customer Service:We deal with a Cisco partner - 4.5 out of 5.Technical Support:We deal with a Cisco partner - 4.0 out of 5. Sometimes we find the solution before we get an answer from the Cisco partner.Previous Solutions:Everything is driven by business requirements, which in turn different from one project to another. Major points are: availability of support/expertise beyond internal resources, territorial coverage, performance and support of multiple options from enterprise to industrial environmentInitial Setup:Straightforward.Implementation Team:90 % in house. Vendor team has sufficient skills.Other Solutions Considered:There are multiple vendors but they are very specialized and do not support versatile solutions. For example, we had to move from Schneider switches as they were just a marketing move by vendor and did not provided better performance or compatibility with SCADA products.Other Advice:Start from your business requirements (what would you like to have) and budget (what can you afford).Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid work horse switch, maybe not as powerful as some of the higher models but more than capable of the job at hand. Very easy to use and reasonably priced for CISCO. I especially liek the industrial fanless C series for some of our more rugged areas of operations. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by We have been purchasing the 2960X series for a while now and they fulfilling all of our needs for a layer 2 switch. August 4, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Modules are hot swappable, as you have dual power supplies. If you need improvements, you'll need to upgrade the hardware. Valuable Features:Support for various dynamic IP routing protocols and the ability to slot in additional modules while the switch is running.Improvements to My Organization:Modules are hot swappable, as you have dual power supplies, as well as support for various dynamic IP routing protocols.Room for Improvement:Nothing that I can think of. If you want to improve, you have the choice to upgrade the hardware.Use of Solution:I've used it for four years.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:It's been very stable since deployment.Scalability Issues:It's very scalable, as you just need to buy new modules, and slot them in as and when required.Customer Service:Excellent customer service.Technical Support:I never had an issue yet with this product which required TAC intervention but from my previous experience Cisco TAC support is the best.Previous Solutions:We previously used 3com switches, and we switched to Cisco in order to standardize our network hardware.Initial Setup:It's easy to deploy if you know what you are doing, and do proper planning. For me, it was pretty straightforward. I have years of experience on Cisco products.Implementation Team:It was an in-house deployment.ROI:It's high.Cost and Licensing Advice:It's worth the price you pay.Other Solutions Considered:We considered using Cisco 3700 series switches and stacking them.Other Advice:It's best for access layer deployment.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by We use 2x Stacked X-Line 2960 switches for the core of smaller datacenters with a few hosts. They handle iSCSI SAN traffic and distribution to access layer. Solid switches, never issues - just expensive. But you get what you pay for! June 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have many of these switches and they are a great switch easy to config plenty of features never seen one fail yet February 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Basic 2960 but still a great workhorse, it's been reviewed many times elsewhere so it's pointless my trying to better them, we used them so we included them. February 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by These are our standard closet switches in offices that require PoE for VOIP phones. We have several dozen in the field and are very happy. Performance and reliability have been fantastic on these switches. January 8, 2015
