We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

The vendor price is fair.
We pay for port licensing and support on a yearly basis, and it's not cheap.
As far as pricing, we only pay for support on a yearly basis. There are no other costs after you initially pay for the licenses. The only exception to that is if you need to add devices to the system. If you add to the system you need to license more ports. You need to pay for the additional licensing. Other than that it essentially works by itself so it is like having another employee for the cost of support. I don't know the exact prices but I know the product is not cheap.
