Hello,

I work in education in the UK and we're being advised that we should look into moving to a foundry network over a cisco network... does anyone have any knowledge of both products and the pros and cons of each - i've been looking for a comparison on google and can't find much.

Something that interested me was that there are quite a few posts on here which say foundry netiron & dell powerswitch are both the same OEM switches branded by the company - does anyone know any more about this... is this a good or bad thing?

Thanks for any comments.

I can advise that the Dell switches are garbage they are giving them away with purchases of their product because no one will buy them. So if they are the same and based on foundry you could not pay me to take them.  I have had experiance with the Dell and the Cisco, I continue to buy cisco and will never buy another Dell so take that for what it is worth.  

The reason many other vendors provide extended warrantee times over the Cisco products is that they will need them.  I have had cisco 2924xl's and 1900 cisco's that are bullet proof and have been for years and years without touching them.

Cisco support has gone down hill in about the last 4 years but is still decent compared to other vendors.

Thanks
Scott
