Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

Dell PowerConnect switches are cheaper than Cisco switches. Cisco's higher capacity switches (100 or 200 gigs) are super-expensive. With the higher capacity, the price of the switches and the price of the architecture go high. Dell is cheaper and modular. So, I don't need to invest 100% upfront. I can invest as I progress. That is an option because the chassis will not be populated with all the pluggables. I have a choice because it is modular. I can go for 25 gigs today, and after four months, I can go for 100 gigs, and after that, I can go for 200 gigs. I have a choice when it is not a fixed switch.

It's a simple product and easy and low-cost to buy.

If you want to purchase a new Dell PowerConnect Switch, you will pay up to $1,600, but I bought them used. I bought the four Dell PowerConnect Switches that I used for $1,000. If you consider the density of the switch, which has 48 ports with Power over Ethernet, the overall cost is low.

Good product, low cost (cheaper than Cisco) and I'd avoid DNA Cisco.

This product is fairly cheap compared to its competitors, and there are no additional costs.

Its price is okay. Sometimes, it is lower than a Cisco solution.

There are no additional costs other than purchasing the solution which is quite reasonably priced.

This solution is much cheaper than comparable products by Cisco.

Dell costs less than Cisco. Cisco, in comparison, is about four times more expensive.
