Pricing and Cost Advice

"There are both paid and free licenses of the cloud environment, with only basic functionality in the free version.""Our access points device is at its end of life. I can buy one more and then I must buy a new device, but if it is a new device it will not support the old virtual appliance. I would need to upgrade our virtual appliance to the next version or build a new virtual appliance with new devices, and it's not good for us. The overall licensing subscription could be better.""The purchase of 350 access points cost approximately $250,000 USD.""The solution is priced well and we currently are only paying for a license for maintenance."
