"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."
