Cons
I think the administration can be improved to include web interfaces.Cisco device management is quite difficult. They should work to simplify this.It can be difficult to find service and at times we cannot connect with the internet easily.The pricing needs to be better.The graphical interface is old and needs to improve.I would like for it to have support for the Dutch language. I typically use English in 99% of our communications but for some people, it matters.In terms of what needs improvement, it should have better integration. Although, it might have already been taken care of.
