Hi,

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

There can be limited features for the solution based on the pricing of the package you choose. You will need to pay more to get more performance. However, the router can perform even better with certain extra costs. For example, if you can perform 200 Mbps throughput but I want a 1 Gbps throughput, I have to pay more or purchase more licenses. Additionally, If I want to use the SD-WAN feature, I have to purchase a different license and install the operating license. Sometimes the budgets do not fit all these types of upgrades that become expensive. We are on a yearly license for this solution. We have a procurement process in which we have to plan ahead one to two years. We have to determine which branches have to support the data communication network and have a proposal for the future to be agreed upon. If no agreement is made, then we have to continue the procurement process for an eventual successful agreement in the future.

The pricing is pretty good. It's a fairly low-cost option. We find the licensing reasonable.

It is costly. Because of its pricing, customers are not ready to buy Cisco solutions, and they are going for other brands.

Considering the problems that we have, Linksys is overpriced.

Pricing should be more competitive. There are other switches that are cheaper.

When it comes to pricing, I think the licensing cost is not that bad. It is actually very competitive within the product category.

Cisco switches are a little expensive when it comes to the price. We are starting to phase out of the sale of these because of the higher price. Cisco licenses are renewed every year.

The price of this solution is high, but it depends on the number of units that you want to order.

If you look at the product portfolio from Cisco, it's quite expensive. So you need to be up to date with the most specific model. You need to tailor every opportunity and look at what's best for the customer.

It's an affordable price for small companies using on-premises networks where cloud services are too expensive for them.
