How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good. We're satisfied with their service. They're helpful and fast to reply.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Cisco.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not very easy, because you have to set it up from scratch. You have no configuration at the beginning so you have tools to set up, and you need to know how to configure the routers from scratch. You have to know all the protocols and all the characteristics of them, to it set up.

It took about six months to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

Our team handled the implementation ourselves.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Extreme Networks and Cisco, among other solutions. We chose Nokia because of the price and the integration.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate it seven out of ten.
