We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We pay for the Cisco Customer Care support, which is a couple of hundred dollars.""80 percent reduction in WAN costs. There are no MPLS or P2P circuits left in the organization.""Cisco is more expensive than some competing products.""SD-WAN as a service is probably something in the neighborhood of $100 to $200 a month per location.""The costs are a bit on the high side.""It is much cheaper than other solutions. Most of our clients are the top 500 companies, and they all have a corporate contract.""The license model is too complex with too many flavors and options. You might not be able to see it from an end user's point of view, but from a telco point of view, their license model is too complex. They should have a flexible license model. If you want to have good pricing, you need to buy it for a two-year, four-year, or five-year license immediately. Some other vendors have much more flexible license models.""It is going to be on a yearly basis. There are no additional costs."
