    Information Not Available
  • "The price is a bit on the high side."
  • "Cisco now has more products that are priced for small businesses, so they do have some cheaper models."
  • "Price is a pain point for us. We've lost a lot of bids, and the reason has been that we majorly quoted Cisco devices. Some of our competitors quoted other devices like Ubiquity or Microchip. Some even quoted this Chinese product TP-Link, and they won the bid over us because we quoted Cisco. Meanwhile, the major reason why we quoted Cisco is reliability and stability from day one. They also last longer. The prices could be worked on so that they become more affordable. We had to deploy a city-wide WiFi network, and we were working in conjunction with Google. Because of the price, even Google recommended a product called Ruckus, so we used Ruckus over Cisco. Its price and license were the main reasons. You have to pay to renew the license every year. Even though you also renew the licenses for Ruckus, but they are much cheaper than Cisco. So, while I would recommend Cisco any time, the trouble remains with the pricing."
  • "The price is on the higher side."
  • "In addition to the fees being high, you pay for support which is also on the higher side."
  • "There are different licensing based on the model of the solution."
  • "It is an expensive product."
  • "Cisco products are not cheap, which is something that can be improved."
