"I think that their LAN automation is a very good feature."
"The solution has the capability to scale."
"Anything to do with storage needs improvement."
"There is a limitation with the number of VRFs that you can have in your network, and this has caused us problems with some customers."
"The network, data center, and SD-WAN are all being treated as different services, but I would like to have only one solution to manage all of them."
"DNA Center has been on the market for a few years and they need to update it."
"The task failure reporting or provisioning failure reporting could be a little bit better in the UI, with more information given to the user."
"The solution can be quite pricey."
