Read the documentation of the current model and always create a backup because anything can happen. I was working in a rural area, and the weather kept interfering with signal strengths and bandwidth. If you're using the terminal, you have to teach yourself brand new commands. If you are using the web interface, it is pretty straightforward. I would rate Extreme VDX an eight out of ten.

The solution is quite good overall. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. It's now part of Extreme and Extreme is no longer pushing it as a product. I haven't seen any development of this product over the last year and that is the main issue with the solution. There have been no newer releases and no really good bug fixes. I don't need new features, but having a new release or having some higher speed levels on there, just might be nice. I don't know if the solution has a future because the company doesn't seem to be investing in updates or improvements.
