Cisco licensing is usually provided for 1 year, 3 years, or 5 years. You can get a hardware SLA or hardware and software SLA for a period of 5 years. Longer terms of SLA influences the pricing. License pricing also depends on the features that are being used.

I think that the solution is expensive because the customer has to pay for a full year, at a minimum, in up-front costs.

Don't use Cisco Meraki. While pretty, the devices and licensing aren't worth the cost.

As far as pricing and licensing go it really depends. I think that it would be better to have more flexible licensing mostly for our clients because then we could commercialize those solutions and position them for a more broader market segment. The pricing depends on the size of the project and the support from the client side.

It's a bit expensive but it's professional and works properly.

This product's pricing is good. It's not too expensive. Whether the pricing is a good value depends on the product. I was looking for some Cisco products and found that some are expensive, like the Cisco Spectrum Expert Wireless adapter.

It's good to compare pricing, but it's Cisco and I trust Cisco.

The pricing is okay. I believe it is competitively priced. But it is not just the price by itself, it's the price and the technical features. The features also play a big role. It has to give me the relevant output. That is more important. Price is secondary. Price will not play a very big role because if it does not deliver what I need... For example, if I were to buy a car without an engine, that's still a car, but it is of no use. I might as well buy a car that works. They have simplified the licensing. Now there is a single license that is required. Earlier, multiple licenses were required. Single licensing is good. As a customer, I don't need to keep an inventory of multiple licenses.

Pricing is a bit on the high side compared to its competitors but we have to consider the support and usages of the solution. Licensing is now RTU and smart licensing. We need three types of licenses, one for the: * APs * HA * controller.

Never pay the full GPL price.

The pricing is high. It could be cheaper. Cisco is known for its high pricing.

I am not a fan of Cisco's software pricing model. Their management software is far too expensive.
