I would recommend getting your deployments before you jump into buying or trying out this solution. Have a clear road map for your deployments and your future solutions. The solution has a rich feature set but on the down side is the issue with the high throughputs. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to plan well. You have to make sure that you plan ahead and know what it is that you want to achieve, then gather all of the relevant information. Otherwise, if you start to configure it and then find out that you don't have the right application server, or the right policy, or the proper certificate to install and configure it, then the installation will be very long. On the other hand, if the plan is very good and you have all of the details in advance, along with the right people to test it, then it should be straightforward. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
