I have found the solution's main features are its ability to be customized, network traffic classification, and has a wide range of features that can be set.

I like the feature that lets you transfer from old devices to new devices without changing the hardware and subscription.

From my observations, Cisco has been rolling out new features every other day, so I would say their speed of innovation is one of the most valuable aspects for me.

We would recommend this solution to customers looking to implement it on a global scale. We recommend the solution, not only because of the functionality or the technical support, but also because of the delivery of the solution, and the docking and upgrading capabilities.

The orchestration on the VPN connection between remote locations is a fantastic feature. I used it some time ago.

The first part that we like is that we can reuse certain hardware, which is a valuable asset. You can use hardware SKUs that already exist in the network.

The second part that we like is the integration with the cloud and the measurement of the cloud's quality. These are the two values that this solution gives as compared to other implementations that we have seen.

It is really easy to deploy and use. It is also easy to use for failovers and designing solutions.

The rollout is really quick. It is easy to adjust and roll out.

Using SD-WAN to combine services can result in better up time, higher speeds, and much lower costs.

The centralized management is the most important feature. We can monitor what is going on at every location in our network with just one center.

The most useful feature for our organization is the combination of on-prem and cloud-based deployments. We connect securely to our hybrid cloud using transit VPCs and cloud on-ramp for fast deployments.

The reliability is high and we have only had to restart it once or twice over the years.

Cisco is an industry leader, so customers have a high level of trust with the brand more-so than with some newcomers that might have some more revolutionary solutions, but no name recognition.

The solution's application control and application traffic steering tool are its most valuable aspects in terms of how we utilize the product.
