The solution is very stable. I have not seen any downtime due to the product freezing or anything like that. It performs well and hasn't required reboots unless it's to troubleshoot with a support service provider needing configuration. It doesn't overheat and it's on 24/7.

Cisco has one of the best products in terms of routing because of the protocols in which they provide.

Due to the sanctions on our country, we can't get outside help directly from Cisco. We need to handle the implementation ourselves.

If I only have one LAN port in which I want to connect more than one device, I have to buy an add-on card so that I can have two LAN ports. The smaller devices and low-end routers have about four LAN ports. This solution is a high-end device but has only one. It would be preferable if they offered more LAN ports.

In terms of room for improvement, I think that there is a need for additional administration.

The only other thing we struggled with from time to time is when we were configuring access points through a controller.
