Cons
DNA Center has been on the market for a few years and they need to update it.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.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.
