Quotes From Members

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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There is a subscription cost.""The licensing fee is paid on a yearly basis.""Pricing depends on the automation requirements of the organization.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans.""When talking about Cisco solutions in general there pricing model is horrible. For example, you can sell a Meraki-based solution, but if the customer starts shopping around, someone is going to have access to the pricing at a level that you cannot compete because they do not have uniform pricing. Not everybody gets fair pricing. Unless you are one of the real major corporations selling the solution your ability to compete is impossible. Cisco will acknowledge the situation and assure you next time it will be in your favor but it never becomes favorable for you. Cisco is not very good in this regard. However, Umbrella is good.""The price could be lower.""The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible.""I am not sure, I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I think it's $1.00 or so per device/month."
