We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Pricing is not cheap. It is based on licenses per port. After licensing is purchased, you only pay for support."
"We pay for port licensing and support on a yearly basis, and it's not cheap."
"The vendor price is fair."
"The licensing module should be reviewed to count the number of devices instead of port numbers of total switches. There is a case for this where not all ports for a switch are used by devices. Unused ports are calculated in the license, then the customer pays for license for those unused ports."
