Pricing and Cost Advice
"Try to buy everything you need in bulk purchases and ask Cisco for volume discounts.""The price of Cisco equipment is very expensive and you have to pay extra for support.""The cost of a license before COVID and before the lockdown was approximately three lakh 70,000 in Indian Rupees. After this COVID situation, the cost has gone down to two lakh 46,000 rupees.""Licensing is on a yearly basis. We usually spend up to $20,000.""The solution is probably the most expensive, but users who want the best need to pay the premium.""Cisco products are not that cheap.""Cisco switches are expensive. Their price range is based not only on what the product does but also the name in the industry. They are good at what they do. If you need a better product, there are other lineups available.""I don't see any price issue with Cisco. Whenever you buy a quality product, you always have a mindset of paying the premium amount. For any good product, you pay a premium amount, but that also means you are going to recover that premium over a period of time in terms of performance."
