Over the past couple of years, I've noticed that the Cisco CLIs and web-based interfaces have changed. As such, there is a bit of a learning curve for people. It is understandable that newer technology is different, but it would be helpful if the interface had more in common with the older, legacy systems. There should be a system in place to help existing users make an easier transition to the newer interfaces.

The version of this solution that we are using does not support the LISP protocol. The new versions support LISP, which helps with the aggregation of routing across the landings.

Cisco should improve on the operation due to a clock signal component failure. I would also like to see better security, where there are more access controls and data confidentiality.

I would like some deployment examples and guides specific to AWS VPCs and how to separate your subnets. Then, how they tie-in with the Internet gateway and any NAT services that we are running on our VPC. This would be extremely helpful. Thus, a lot more detail around deployments would go a long ways towards easing customers' fears.

The ease of use within the AWS environment needs to improve. Sometimes, it is very esoteric in how you use it. Therefore, you have to learn to use it, then you are able to.

It is too complex. It is not easy to set up, even with the documentation that they provided. It is a little confusing. I would like a GUI interface. The command line is not very straightforward, especially if you don't use it every day.

It does the job, but it's not cloud native. It could be even better, like having a single pane of glass and being less expensive. However, the product works.

They have an online registration that happens after they pick up block months. If they could decrease to yearly or something, sometimes the device is not cell phone accessible. That becomes an issue or challenge for us. If that can be improved, that would be really great.

I would like the ability to moderate between devices on-premise to off-premise. This would be a vast improvement. In the next release, I would like them to add the ability to track a security feature to track the various IPs that come in.

The possibility to use on-premise the same protocols as they're using on the cloud. When we want to do a high availability architecture, we have to use AWS features. The Cisco does not give you these features. It could grow or adapt to changes in the cloud. For example, cloud does not support autoscaling. When people want to grow, they have to do manual activities.

You do need to pay a licensing fee to use the solution. You can do a yearly or three-year subscription. The product itself is quite expensive. It would be ideal if they offered the product at a cheaper price.
