"We'd like them to be capable of adding firewall options to the license."
"The solution could improve by providing enhancements to built-in SDN or SDWAN."
"The initial setup is not easy."

When compared to other solutions, they have a GUI. It will be easier for new team members to get familiar with, configure, or set up the router. Additionally, adding some monitoring tools would help us."
