We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution is stable it runs without any interruptions."
"The stability of the program is excellent."
"The most important feature related to this solution is that most of the time, it covers all of what we need for our projects."
"it's a stable solution. We have not experienced any bugs or issues. Many data centers and enterprise data centers prefer Cisco to any other product because they are very stable."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the support."
"The most valuable feature of Cisco routers is that they are robust."
"The pricing of the solution is very good. It works well within our network."
"The most valuable feature is the dynamic routing."
"These switches are very easy to install because there is no configuration."
"Its integration is the most valuable."
"I can't find anything wrong with our D-Link Ethernet Switches."
"These switches are simple and easy to configure."
"The solution is scalable."
"The product is simple to manage."
"Scalability-wise, this solution is not designed for small businesses."
"In the next release I would really love to see a list option."
"In the future, I would like to see more focus on software-defined networking solutions."
"The drawbacks come from support. The tools are rare, but to find someone knowledgeable with Cisco, is a problem."
"The pricing for this solution needs to be improved."
"Having the option for a web-based interface would be an improvement over being forced to use the CLI."
"If possible, we'd like to see support in our country, but it will be difficult as we are located in Iran."
"The installation could be simplified."
"I would like an option to create different networks within the switch."
"It should be more stable, and it should have good integration with the cloud. It should support configuration, supervision, and control through the cloud."
"They could be more stable. They were not as resistant as Cisco. After some time, some of them failed. This could be because we import quite a lot of products from different horizons, so there is no guarantee of quality. In Africa, these products don't always directly come from the manufacturer. We get these products from the Middle East or Asia. Therefore, you cannot be sure that the quality is exactly similar to what you have in Europe or America."
"We have issues with the stability."
"The solution needs better local support."
"It's an affordable price for small companies using on-premises networks where cloud services are too expensive for them."
"If you look at the product portfolio from Cisco, it's quite expensive."
"The price of this solution is high, but it depends on the number of units that you want to order."
"I think that pricing should be more competitive. While the Cisco product is good, the pricing is not competitive. People will end up going with other cheaper solutions such as Arista."
"Cisco switches are a little expensive when it comes to the price."
"The price of Linksys products is pretty reasonable."
"The licensing cost is not bad and is actually very competitive within the product category."
"Pricing should be more competitive. There are other switches that are cheaper."
"The D-Link Switches are cheaper than Cisco."
"These units vary in price from $200 to one thousand dollars. They're available for a one-time purchase."
"They were cheap. We were not paying for any license."
"The solution is budget-friendly"
