What do you like most about Cisco SD-WAN?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
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.
This solution comes with comprehensive technical support.
It is very stable with very good firmware.
I like the feature that lets you transfer from old devices to new devices without changing the hardware and subscription.
The deployment is quite simple and straightforward.
The user experience is pretty good.
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.
The initial setup is quite simple.
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.
Configuration interfaces are quite easy and intuitive. Being a part of the Cisco environment, Cisco SD-WAN is quite straightforward.
It is very simple and easy to manage, compared to other methods.
The most valuable feature is the ease of central management.
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.
You get security, all of the service you need, and it's easy to deploy.
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.
The regular net routing is a good feature.
The product's brand recognition is one of the most valuable aspects of the solution.
It's very easy to manage and monitor the network's health and security using the solution.
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.
There is minimum blind space in this solution.
The solution's application control and application traffic steering tool are its most valuable aspects in terms of how we utilize the product.
The most valuable feature is the application-level routing.
The segmented traffic it provides is the best in the industry right now.
So far, the feature that I like best is the policy configuration manager.
This solution can scale from SMB to the enterprise level. It is very impressive.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
