Scalability Issues


Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service: Rather good, I've only needed to contact them on really rare occasions.Technical Support: There was no need for technical support. T only thing I did was a memory upgrade which was quick and not problematic.

Previous Solutions

Yes, linux based routers such as pfsense, zentyal. Those solutions were much more unstable. I also used some less known switches. First power supply issues eliminates them fast.

Initial Setup

If you have the proper knowledge level there is no problems with initial setup. You simply need to know what are you doing.

Implementation Team


Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Initial costs were reasonable and the day-to-day cost is the cost of keeping a Cisco engineer on staff

Other Solutions Considered

Yes- 3com, Mikrotik

Other Advice

Hire/educate a Cisco engineer or a fast learning IT manager.
