"First and foremost, it enables the customer to deploy high availability connections. This kind of solution enables them to deploy these HA connections for policies mostly automatically. It's a more automated approach than with other vendors.""We had several clients that were paying $7,500 a month for an MPLS line for one single 10 megabit circuit and we were able to take that from $7,500 a month down to $500 a month for two 10 megabits circuits that added redundancy where before they did not have redundancy and it gave them a much better throughput.""The most valuable feature is the support for asymmetric lines."

Cons
"The training could be better. When it comes to the demo dashboard capability, I feel like it could be much easier for our customers to use. Our last customer complained about this.""The solution installs similarly to competitors. It is not more difficult or easier. However, it could be easier and take less time for the installation."

"They have to implement more security with it. The security, mainly their firewall functions, have to be included in the firewall features.""Their WAN optimization in terms of wireless connectivity doesn't have a very good cellular capability.""The security can be improved, with the firewall for example, because they supply a basic one but not a UTM."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing structure is very flexible.""The cost of the solution is a little expensive. The hardware is a one-time purchase fee and the software is purchased on an annual basis. There are additional costs for other software features that are available which are on an annual basis, such as extra capacity."

"You typically will license the hardware and you license the software to access the hardware capabilities. The price will range anywhere from a hundred to $300 a month. There are no additional costs.""The licensing fees depend on the bandwidth. As an example of what we charge our customers, for 100MB without Boost, the price is approximately $2,000. That includes the licensing and the unit."
