I don't have any visibility on the licensing setup. That's managed by procurement, actually. I don't have any information about it.

The solution can be quite expensive and is a bit of a higher cost when compared to others on the market.

The solution is quite expensive. It's pretty high, especially when you compare it against the offerings of other vendors. They need to be more competitive in terms of pricing.

I was not involved with the specific pricing agreement, so I don't know. However, I am familiar with some of the aspects. Generally, the cheaper, the better. I believe that this is part of the procurement management that must be involved with requirements. Pricing will be based on your requirements so it is important to plan, engage, and negotiate directly with the Cisco Account Manager. I have an excellent relationship and experience with them. They are accommodating in all areas such as reaching out, checking and engaging in setup and configuration of equipment that has arrived, training, help in designing, consulting, pricing, and licensing.

Pricing with Cisco is very high. The price is very inefficient.

The pricing for Cisco products is always high.

You can typically get reasonable pricing on the solution. The hardware itself, however, isn't the biggest cost. The biggest cost is licensing, and that can be quite expensive.

Cisco products are at the high end in terms of cost, but everything is included with the licensing fees. The only thing that we pay for separately is VMware.

The price of this solution is a little bit higher, but given that this system is Cisco, it feels more secure and dependable.
