Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unlike the legacy fixed IOS, it has a modular IOS form. However, it's expensive and needs to be made more affordable for SMEs. Valuable Features:It's got fantastic throughput which meets most of the network Gbps/Tbps data throughput in Next-Generation Networks (NGN) that are in use in today's industry.Improvements to My Organization:* Higher switching capacity* Feature-rich for almost all requirements* Modular IOS form, unlike the legacy fixed IOS which is prone to single point of crash for all services and features on it.Room for Improvement:Cost is very expensive, it needs to be reviewed for affordability by SMEs. They are on the high side for some SMEs who are willing todeploy high standard IT solution powered by Cisco but most of the time,they are not able to afford Cisco SME products.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
