Cons
"I am happy with the price of Cisco Enterprise Routers, but they could offer more discounts to their customers.""As we are expanding, we require more coverage.""The price could be better.""If Cisco can give you one license and allow you to use all the features, that would be the best thing. We are using it only as a voice gateway, and there are other options available, but we need to procure licenses to use those options. We can use it as a security device, or we can use it for connecting the LAN side, but for that, we need all those licenses. They can provide one license and allow you to use all the features. This is my recommendation for Cisco.""I would like it if Cisco Routers had a longer lifecycle. That's what we need. We don't want to renew or implement a new model. One model should be available for at least five years. This seems impossible nowadays.""While scalability is available, it must be paid for.""The initial setup can be a little bit difficult.""The installation can be difficult, Cisco equipment is professional-grade and it requires someone with the skills and knowledge to do it."

"Compatibility with other platforms could be improved.""Better management tools are needed."
