We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We pay for the Cisco Customer Care support, which is a couple of hundred dollars."
"80 percent reduction in WAN costs. There are no MPLS or P2P circuits left in the organization."
"Cisco is more expensive than some competing products."
"SD-WAN as a service is probably something in the neighborhood of $100 to $200 a month per location."
"The costs are a bit on the high side."
"It is much cheaper than other solutions. Most of our clients are the top 500 companies, and they all have a corporate contract."
"The license model is too complex with too many flavors and options. You might not be able to see it from an end user's point of view, but from a telco point of view, their license model is too complex. They should have a flexible license model. If you want to have good pricing, you need to buy it for a two-year, four-year, or five-year license immediately. Some other vendors have much more flexible license models."
"It is going to be on a yearly basis. There are no additional costs."
