Cons
The solution's framework and some of the techniques need improvement. I've been watching Aruba, and they have a lot of technologies within the access points. For example, it has a virtual controller to connect all Aruba switches.The manageability could be improved.The installation could be simplified.If possible, we'd like to see support in our country, but it will be difficult as we are located in Iran.Having the option for a web-based interface would be an improvement over being forced to use the CLI.The pricing for this solution needs to be improved.The drawbacks come from support. The tools are rare, but to find someone knowledgeable with Cisco, is a problem.In the future, I would like to see more focus on software-defined networking solutions.

The manageability of the web-based UI needs to be improved.The solution needs to improve its security firewalls and mirror that of, for example, Sophos, or FortiGate.The solution's website isn't that good. When I go to it, I can't find what I'm looking for. However, if I go to a third party's website, I can easily find the information.The biggest thing that needs improvement is the support.I would like to see a cluster feature added, where multiple devices can be configured and managed as one. One is in a standby state while the other is active, and if one fails then the other takes over.In the Israeli market, we are in need of Hebrew support.The user interface allows you to do a lot of things, but it is not user-friendly.They could improve their product if they set, for instance, a controller for wireless LAN. That would allow them to really have something more than an access point.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Cisco switches are a little expensive when it comes to the price.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.The price of this solution is high, but it depends on the number of units that you want to order.If you look at the product portfolio from Cisco, it's quite expensive.It's an affordable price for small companies using on-premises networks where cloud services are too expensive for them.
