"Good user profiling and BYOD facilities."
"We use this solution to troubleshoot our wireless systems, specifically regarding signal strength."
"If an AP or any wireless device goes into critical mode, Cisco Prime sends an alert. That is the most helpful feature."
"Cisco Prime allows us to do a lot of functions with the users and it is flexible."
"Has a good wireless heatmap and search management features."
"I have found the solution to be scalable."
"Cisco Prime is user-friendly, so we are comfortable using it."
"Cisco Prime, from a management perspective, has good reporting."
"The most valuable feature of Cisco Prime is the heat map."
"Lacks application level visibility on the dashboard."
"Cisco Prime could improve the graphical user interface."
"The solution has issues with real time monitoring of devices and NetFlow such as inadequate visualization for reports, sources, and destinations."
"The user interface of Cisco Prime could be more user-friendly and increase its performance."
"We would like to see the inclusion of detailed alerts."
"The solution is not easy to configure."
"The solution needs to include centralized management that aligns with the Greenfield network and its focus on real-time, scenario-based applications."
"Cisco needs to improve Prime's monitoring tab. If any device goes down, there is a 15-second lapse before we know. It would be much better if we were alerted two or three minutes before a device is about to fail, so we can dispatch a field engineer and avoid network downtime. I would like to see a feature that allows you to access the devices directly from Prime's monitoring tab. That would make work easier for us."
"Cisco Prime could improve the notifications in the system. Having more details about what is happening would be useful, such as traffic numbers or who is connected. We can see them through the firewall controller, but it would be better if you can see them from one place."
