Pros
The queue functionality is the solution's most valuable feature, specifically because we are delivering a lot of Layer 2 services. Layer 2 protocol tunnels work well on Cisco switches.This is a great solution for network switching and security.A stable product that is absolutely dependable.The technical support is good and they respond quickly. I haven't had any problems.The most valuable feature is the complete functionality, but the most important thing is support.For me, the initial setup was easy and straightforward, but for some of our customers who are not as familiar with networking, it can be complicated.Good and stable operational experience with nearly no loss of hardware and very few software bugs.DNA Center is very interesting in automating the setup and monitoring as with each occurrence it gets easier to troubleshoot and provides an impression about what could be the problem.

You don't need to license every switch. We only chose to cover support on core/key equipment and keep a cold spare available when needed.Support prices and licensing scheme need to be improved to allow some features to be purchased at lower costs, for example, RPM​.
