Cisco Network Assurance Engine Room for Improvement

General Manager at Crystal Networks
We usually capture information from the customer, not from our system integrator. Why? Because the customer is using the tools and solution every day. They are facing all the problems every day. We give them the chance for a healthy discussion between the system integrator and the customer. We have this, but not all the system integrators are doing this. If we keep this door open, we will capture the feedback. We don't have this backdoor to Cisco. We give them the healthy feedback, not the complaints. The complaints are usually 80 percent of the information coming in with a lot of complexity and anger behind them. So, there is no real data or information that we can use. We are using other vendors as a complementary solutions. I hope that Cisco will think about doing a kind of acquisitions, e.g., CCTV. Because what they have right now is not good enough, and good enough will not work anymore. At the end of the day, I need an end-to-end solution, not a complimentary solution. View full review »
