The Total Economic Impact™ of Cisco Catalyst AccessSwitches
By Norman Forbush, Forrester Research
Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco Catalyst Access Switches. For this study, Forrester conducted interviews with five existing Cisco customers and completed an online market survey of 104 senior network managers. The analysis showed that operating expense (opex) contributed up to 70% of total cost of ownership (TCO) and found that TCO is 14% less when IT deploys Cisco Catalyst Access Switches versus others.
