Pros
The most important feature is that it is designed for mobile vehicle communication in harsh conditions.It provides peace of mind because it is a stable product that you aren't going to lose sleep over at night wondering if it will be running or not.It integrates well with the other products we're using. We have it with multiple windows like Palo Alto, Arista and it easily integrated with them.It allowed us to create a more secure VPN than we would have been able to do without it.It handles stress very well. We have not reached a point of needing to worry about its capabilities.It seems pretty stable. We have never had any issues with it.It connects all the accounts with the weaknesses, and this is what we were looking for. Also, it connects with the on-premise side.AWS has a reference architecture to enable the Cisco routers in high availability and Transit VPC. This is a very powerful router and can enable us to use Transit VPC in AWS, and this is a very powerful feature that we use.

Cons
I would like to see better security, where there are more access controls and data confidentiality.I would like the ability to moderate between devices on-premise to off-premise. This would be a vast improvement.They have an online registration that happens after they pick up block months. If they could decrease to yearly or something, sometimes the device is not cell phone accessible. That becomes an issue or challenge for us. If that can be improved, that would be really great.It is too complex. It is not easy to set up, even with the documentation that they provided. It is a little confusing.The ease of use within the AWS environment needs to improve. Sometimes, it is very esoteric in how you use it. Therefore, you have to learn to use it, then you are able to.I would like some deployment examples and guides specific to AWS VPCs and how to separate your subnets. Then, how they tie-in with the Internet gateway and any NAT services that we are running on our VPC. This would be extremely helpful.It does the job, but it's not cloud native. It could be even better, like having a single pane of glass and being less expensive.Technical support could be better. I am missing a single pane of glass, where I can see all the connections, etc.
