"Its configuration and deployment are the most valuable.""The support organization behind this product is extremely professional.""What our customers like the most is that this device is so rugged. It has very good performance and throughput. Its console is very easy to use and has many features, which makes it different from its competitors. Cloud IQ has all the features built into the console, whereas other solutions require you to integrate multiple solutions with their consoles. You don't need to add anything extra with Cloud IQ. With this single solution, you can do almost everything."

Cons
"There is a limitation with the number of VRFs that you can have in your network, and this has caused us problems with some customers.""The network, data center, and SD-WAN are all being treated as different services, but I would like to have only one solution to manage all of them.""DNA Center has been on the market for a few years and they need to update it.""The task failure reporting or provisioning failure reporting could be a little bit better in the UI, with more information given to the user.""The solution can be quite pricey."

More Cisco DNA Center Cons »

"They can improve just the onboarding process. More user information about the introduction to the product would be helpful. It would be good if they have a better user introduction to the new product because it is different than the prior version.""Having a wizard for customers who are just starting might be helpful.""Its price could be lower. It is a simplified solution, but it has price challenges. It is costly as compared to other solutions. It has almost everything. The only thing is that MAC is not possible on the cloud, and it has to be on-premises."
