"With Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch LAN Switches everything comes from one vendor. It operates very smoothly."
"These OmniSwitches are very manageable and easy to configure."
"I like the flexibility of this product."
"We use the VLANs to separate library, office, and individual apartments. With some of the reporting that receive, we're able to take and track down where people like to put in their own wireless routers. Sometimes they will take a DSL modem from AT&T that they brought from home, hook it in backward, and it will give rogue addresses causing issues."
"I like the management of streaming both audio and video."
"Technical support is always very helpful and fast to respond."
"When it comes to Cisco Catalyst Switches, one can say that the legacy switches are stable."
"One of the main features of this solution is it is easy to manage."
"The solution is good for computation and backup."
"Cisco Switches are more stable in terms of hardware and firmware, rather than Juniper Switches."
"I would like to see better third-party integration with third-party systems."
"When you compare it with HPE and Aruba, it should be fancier."
"The solution could improve security."
"Personal automatization is a feature that should be addressed."
"Pricing mainly is the only issue."
"I use the Cisco Catalyst Switches command-line interface(CLI) a lot out in the field, but there are some web interfaces features that are available that I haven't used very much. I'm more comfortable with the CLI, but the web interfaces are very lacking."
"Their centralized management could be better. There should be some kind of software for centralized management so that I don't need somebody else to manage it."
"The solution could improve by allowing administrators to create scripts to help automate processes to make tasks easier."
"Cisco is weird about their pricing models, so that's one problem. Their operating system is also a little outdated."
