"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.

More Cisco Prime Cons →

"It will be better if they can make the simple network topology part more presentable. It would also be better if they had API integration and integration with third-party devices.""The price could be less costly.""Something that could be improved is the lack of integration with Cisco switches. In the next release, I would like to see better reporting.""It is not a very flexible product.""This solution could be improved by offering monitoring for all devices and not only Huawei devices."
