A budget-friendly solution providing internal and external routing
Pros and Cons
  • "Provides a good redundancy technique."
  • "Some of the latest protocols are unavailable."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is extreme routing. We have about ten to 12 buildings, so this product provides internal and external routing through the ExtremeRouting mechanism. Additionally, we have routing protocols, like OSPF, and RIP. 

What is most valuable?

We have found the extreme stacking feature very valuable. It is stable, and we use it often in our processes as it provides a good redundancy technique. Additionally, the product offers a good maximum value for its attributes.

What needs improvement?

The product could be improved by including the latest protocols to match the other vendor standards because some of the latest protocols are unavailable. So when we mix this device with other companies and vendors like 48 or Cisco, we have issues because ExtremeRouting uses more of these proprietary protocols. Hence, they can improve by adding the latest protocols to the data.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for eight years and it is deployed on-premises.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable, and there are currently four people using this solution in the organization. However, we intend to increase the usage of this solution eventually.

How are customer service and support?

We have not had a very good experience with customer service and support. We have experienced issues with technical support, which is time-consuming. We don't get the required input we need from the support team. I rate to support a six out of ten.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Neutral

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously did not use any other solutions.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

The solution was deployed in-house and took approximately one week.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Unfortunately, I cannot comment on licensing costs at this time.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Cisco routers. We primarily compared Cisco with ExtremeRouting and chose ExtremeRouting because it was more user-friendly and budget-friendly. Compared to Cisco, ExtremeRouting is cheap and has an easy configuration process.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution an eight out of ten. The solution is good but can be improved by including advanced protocols.
