Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series: Best User Access Layer Switch Ever made?


Let’s find out.

As we know, Cisco Catalyst Switches have always been one of Cisco’s iconic products. Cisco has released their latest model, Cisco Catalyst 9300. This unit offers the best reliability and performance released thus far, along with all the features you have ever wanted from a user access layer switch.

Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series Switches are the best replacement for the Catalyst 3850 Series.


Encrypted Traffic Analytics, this highly anticipated feature grants you full visibility of your traffic without decrypting it. So, malware is detected and expunged easier than ever. While Netflow granted generic visibility, Nbar2 capabilities enable total transparency of network usage.

These switches deliver unparalleled security and functionality and will extend Cisco’s networking leadership for years to come.

I truly believe the 9300 is the best user access layer switch on the market, and an essential upgrade for any organization’s network infrastructure.
