"The best thing about the solution is that it is all managed from just a single application window. We call this feature a single pane of glass due to the fact that almost all the features are all managed within a single application, or a browser, to be more specific.""I need fewer people to do implementation and support, and I don't have to go on-site to change the configuration or otherwise support the switch.""The report model is one of the valuable models. We are able to see all the information concentrated in reports, which is very useful. We are able to get the information about the performance of the equipment and check that everything is okay. You can get very useful information across applications, so we have very good experience with their management solutions. It has many functionalities to simplify the administration and monitor the development of the switches or AP. It is easy to deploy, easy to configure. and easy to develop. Its price is also good."

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."

"Some features are quite difficult to configure and they are very complicated to figure out. Maybe the vendors should introduce a more driven configuration that can clarify the processes a bit more to make the processes more clearly defined.""It would be helpful if this solution had support for configuring and managing third-party hardware devices.""They can improve the information period. Currently, we are able to have information for only 14 or 15 days, but we would like to have information for an extended period of maybe 30 days. Their technical support can also be improved in terms of the response time to the tickets."
