"It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud.""The solution needs better local support.""I would like an option to create different networks within the switch.""We have issues with the stability.""They could be more stable. They were not as resistant as Cisco. After some time, some of them failed. This could be because we import quite a lot of products from different horizons, so there is no guarantee of quality. In Africa, these products don't always directly come from the manufacturer. We get these products from the Middle East or Asia. Therefore, you cannot be sure that the quality is exactly similar to what you have in Europe or America.""In a future release, the solution could improve by being more secure and allowing the configuration of each port."

More D-Link Ethernet Switches Cons →

"Authentication and other security features are not easily satisfied using the lower-end switches.""There is a limitation of capability.""The ability to stack, as well as a unified operating system, would be extremely beneficial.""If there is any fluctuation in power then we will face an outage with our POE switches, so this is something that should be improved.""Technical support needs improvement, as the response time could be better.""Installation could be made more secure.""VLAN can be improved, but I have to check that with the company expert. I have different switch models, but they don't have all the same interface. I don't know whether lower-level switches don't have the same interface as the better quality ones. I might have two different model types.""The only improvement I can think of is that it could be better with less updates."
