It always depends on the use case and what features and how much capacity is needed.
But in general the successor of the 2960X is 9200, yes.
Catalyst 2960 is quite old, it actually got replaced by other 2960 models in the past, depending on the use case.
I mostly see both models being replaced by Catalyst 9200.
At some use cases maybe even with Catalyst 9300 for various (future proof) reasons.
The 9200 series is expensive compared with the 1000. Especially if you only need 8 ports - an option the 9200 doesnt offer.
Do the 1000 range have traditional features such as:
serial or USB console with IOS CLI interface?
Ability to work with Cisco NAC solutions such as ISE?
An IP services/advanced software option to support protocols such as EIGRP?
Apart from newer features such as SDWAN, what does the 9200 range have over the 1000?
Cat 9200 is just layer2 deployment, not major features supported compare to Cat 9300. its all depends on budget.
