Whether you’re looking for a contractor to improve your home or a school to educate your child, you probably won’t make your decision based solely on an organization’s website. Chances are, you’ll turn to reviews from others who have used the products or services you’re researching. The same is true of technology users, experts, buyers, and providers—many of whom share insights through the TrustRadius community.

What makes these insights trustworthy? TrustRadius maintains rigorous standards for ensuring that only real customers review products, services, and technologies. Today, the site includes write-ups about thousands of offerings from hundreds of vendors and it recognizes standout offerings with its Top Rated Awards. As the TrustRadius website explains, “Top Rated awards help distinguish products in a category that have excellent customer satisfaction ratings. TrustRadius issues Top Rated awards each year in every category on our site. [These] awards are based entirely on reviews. There is no paid placement or analyst opinion.”

We’re proud that the following Cisco IoT products recently earned the Top Rated Award, Best Feature Set and Best Relationship in the Industrial IoT Solutions category.


Cisco Catalyst IE3400 Rugged Series SwitchesCisco Catalyst IE3400 Rugged Series Switches

One user wrote of the IE3400, “Before implementing these switches, production lines were constantly stopped due to network failures. This had a huge financial impact on the company. Cisco Catalyst IE3400 Rugged Series Switches [are] perfect for industrial environments where OT devices are connected.”

Other reviewers described these switches as offering “excellent performance in industrial environments” and lauded their support of full Flexible NetFlow (FNF), “which helps us achieve an improved and secure visibility.”

Others praise “the data it collects from our networking paths helps us plan and make better decisions,” and its many PoE ports, which “connect many devices with a stable network, whose bandwidth has been reliable serving many [connected assets] at the same time.”

One reviewer focused on how the switches helped with their organization’s digital transformation: “The transformation of our digital journey has been enhanced by Cisco Catalyst IE3200 Rugged Series Switches. The network is an essential commodity for developing infrastructure and everything has been achieved since we deployed this product.”

Other reviews speak to the performance in rugged environments. As one Trust Radius user commented, “We use IE3200 in the harsh environments of our warehouses and outdoor lots. [It is] rugged, easily manageable, [and provides] power over ethernet.”

Another wrote about how these switches helped improve their network: “Our current network switches grew slow with our network traffic load, and we decided to replace them with Cisco Catalyst IE3200 Rugged Series Switches. Since its replacement, it has become very reliable and improved the availability of our network.”

Cisco Catalyst IR1100 Rugged Series RoutersCisco Catalyst IR1100 Rugged Series Routers

One reviewer focused on technical benefits, writing, “Cisco Catalyst IR1100 Rugged Series Routers comply with IEEE 1613 and IEC 61850-3 for distribution; we have a multi-VRF, VLAN, and VPN network segmentation that allows us to configure the routing tables so that the network meets the requirements. We have the fastest possible network with WAN and LAN connections.”

“Adios to instability in network connectivity” and “excellent features at good pricing” are two ways other TrustRadius reviewers described the IR1100. Another lauded the products as “among the best we’ve seen.”

“Following the implementation of these routers, our network communication improved dramatically, as did the speed,” the reviewer continued. “These routers are ideal for large organizations because internet connection and networking capabilities are critical. As a result, these routers provide the best performance and results across the board.”

Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless BackhaulCisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul

In addition, Cisco URWB garnered top marks for Best Feature Set and Best Relationship. As one reviewer shared, “Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul, formerly known as Fluidmesh, is widely used in our project since we are implementing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, [which] require us to have a low latency connection and high uptime since most of these industries are relying on IoT to make their business function every day.

“It has all [the] connection tools that supply internet to all devices that cannot be easily accessed by fiber cable internet. It is less costly to install and maintain as compared to other networking options.”

Reviewers also noted scalability, flexibility, and reliability as strengths of Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul. Explore Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul.
