We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's an affordable price for small companies using on-premises networks where cloud services are too expensive for them."
"If you look at the product portfolio from Cisco, it's quite expensive."
"The price of this solution is high, but it depends on the number of units that you want to order."
"I think that pricing should be more competitive. While the Cisco product is good, the pricing is not competitive. People will end up going with other cheaper solutions such as Arista."
"Cisco switches are a little expensive when it comes to the price."
"The price of Linksys products is pretty reasonable."
"The licensing cost is not bad and is actually very competitive within the product category."
"Pricing should be more competitive. There are other switches that are cheaper."
