Cisco switch Vs Enterasys switch

Unanswered Question
Jul 17th, 2010

hello

I work as a network administrator in a company, and soon we will expand our facilities and we need to purchase more switching equipment. Knowing that, a Enterasys commercial contacted my boss and an he pledged equipment as good as Cisco's switch and they could support a VoIP solution from Cisco in the same way that Cisco itself, all with cheaper equipment.

I'm a fan of Cisco and I didn't want to lose the pleasure of working with Cisco equipment, so, i'm asking to this community to give me reasons so that I can convince my boss to continue to purchase cisco?

Thank you very much

I have this problem too.

Hi Maria,

Enterasys vs Cisco.

Here are a few reasons I would consider using Cisco if every thing else is the same.

1-Documentation, I think Cisco has much better documentation then any other company

2-Support, when it comes to RMA and TAC support, Cisco is still at the top

3-Features, when is comes to feature Cisco has plenty of them and that is because when you have so many customers with different demand you have to develop unique features for them.

Now if you ware comparing Cisco routers vs Junipers, I would probably would have a different opinion.

This is stricly my opinion

Hi,

As far as i know the advantage of enterasys switch over cisco is Enterasys requires half the power and half the cooling of equivalent Cisco  devices.

Hope to Help !!

Hi,

three main reasons for you to choose Cisco products:

1- Product Support ( different type of support contracts and levels ).

2- Product features.

3- Product Performance.
