The only problem is that at the moment it's an Extreme product and Extreme is not really pushing it. They have to make up for weak innovation and I'm not sure if they want to do that.

More Extreme VDX Cons »

When we have a lot of clients on the system, we lose signal and have to restart our antenna.The quality of the service needs improvement.The VLAN tagging could be improved,A lower price would be an improvement because we always want to reduce our costs.We have had some rare occasions with glitches, so the stability can be improved.In the next release, I would like to see them include more features like the Aruba solution, to have more possibilities concerning the software design.It would be helpful to have training available for this solution.This solution needs to support software-defined networking.
