Provides network visibility to assist with troubleshooting and fixing problems

What is our primary use case?

My experience with Cisco DNA Center is with selling it and receiving feedback from my customers. I have not personally done any configuration or management with it. I have worked with the demo and also presented it to customers. My clients use this solution to give them more visibility into their network, and the management mode helps with to troubleshoot and fix problems.

Pros and Cons

  • "People like to use the dashboards to get an overview of their network."
  • "There is a limitation with the number of VRFs that you can have in your network, and this has caused us problems with some customers."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anyone who is looking into implementing this solution is to start with Cisco Assurance and do the mapping of the network. I would suggest asking for help from the partners to help with the installation. You can do it on your own but you will easily save the money that you spend on the consultants because they are experts. You will not waste time getting it up and running, and you will be back on track quickly. This is a good solution but nothing is perfect. That said, they are ahead of the other vendors. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
