Yes often problems appear after resolving a previous one.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

4 out of 10

Technical Support:

6 out of 10

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No previously solution used.

How was the initial setup?

Difficult to implement ( more resource and timing) but flexibility in implementation.

What about the implementation team?

Through a vendor, 4 out of 10.

What other advice do I have?

The NMS products should come up with a new approach to resolving issues through centralized monitoring . Currently multi vendor equipment with multi technologies are present in an organization but failing to see the End to End connection of the network should be addressed by the NMS vendors.
