A cloud solution for warehousing with a troubleshooting feature
The initial setup is straightforward. It's based on user requirements. We also conduct heat mapping using a couple of tools. The only requirement is to understand the technical or configuration aspects from the user's end and then configure it. Mist takes no more than 15 to 20 minutes for a particular deployment. You need to understand the end user's environment and have a concrete plan on whether it's a greenfield installation or an existing one, considering the density and height. Based on that, we need to develop a passive heat map. Then, you need to discuss with the user to understand exactly what needs to be configured and what they require in their environment. Based on that, you can proceed with the installation. Additionally, you can perform post-installation heat mapping to ensure it matches the earlier heat map. I rate the initial setup an eight out of ten, where one is difficult, and ten is easy.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"People like to use the dashboards to get an overview of their network."
"It enables monitoring of various components such as access points, switch cards, and other elements within the company's solutions."
"We have many people from the team who manage a lot of devices. By using Cisco DNA Center, it has taken some of that burden away, we are impressed with it. We did the investment in CAPEX, but in the OPEX was very low."
"The solution has the capability to scale."
"Cisco DNA Center is a user-friendly solution."
"Application Assurance works very well."
"Has a good processing feature with a high level of accuracy."
"We can monitor all devices and get the required information using the product."
"We can manage the entire system across the network and troubleshoot the pain points."
"The single dashboard is a valuable feature."


"The tool's deployment is complex. It also needs to improve its GUI."
"There should be an option for automation of template deployment by using the stored data. It is not easy to save configuration information for lots of devices without using other tools. There should be a tighter, better repository of information that can be merged with the templates."
"When it comes to deploying wireless fields, integrating defaults into the DNS interface can be challenging."
"It seems to be a little bit more centered toward wireless than wired. You've got more options you can do wirelessly than you can with the wired switches, but it works for what we need it to do. We would like to see a little bit more about the traffic, and we're looking at what's out there to see about that. We are looking at something that might give us a bit more insight into the actual traffic. If they had the full functionality on the wired side, as they do on the wireless side in terms of being able to view traffic and everything, it would be good."
"The solution's integration feature can be better."
"An area that needs improvement is the integration with other vendors."
"The solution can be quite pricey."
"The solution needs to improve the dashboard."
"The Wi-Fi side needs improvement."
"The technical support needs improvement."

"The partnership price is notably high, but it ultimately depends on the chosen business model."
