The underlying product (Velocloud) is not the issue, Windstream is. Anything this company touches turns to crap.

Pros

Cisco SD-WAN

  • Before Cisco SD-WAN, our users even struggled to send emails with Microsoft 365
  • Cloud applications, such as SharePoint, were not taking a long time to load and made it impossible to collaborate
  • Streaming services--even though video streaming does not work at desired levels, music streaming started to work without interruption

  • Failover is easy, no single point of failure, provided you have the bandwidth.

Cons

Cisco SD-WAN

  • Ease of initial configuration - I'm not actually sure how to make it easier without losing granularity and control, but it can be very difficult and confusing when first setting up. Afterwards, it's just point and click.
  • Model upload - It would be nice if a given hardware model could be "uploaded" to provide a basic configuration to start with.
  • Logs - I'd prefer more options for filtering logs and having certain ones not be alarms of any kind.

  • While the product may work decently once implemented, Windstream is a constant roadblock.
  • Trouble issues need to be escalated before people will bother to work on them.

Support Rating

Cisco SD-WAN

Cisco SD-WAN 8.2
Based on 21 answers
The support that we have received during the deployment phase and the guidance that was imparted with were top-notch. We could have configured this without a doubt, but the expert opinion and advice that was provided to us helped accelerate the design and implementation process that we took. I won't go into specifics, as there are too many and they are on the case to case basis, but I am confident that you will be informed on what "fits" your needs best.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco SD-WAN

We only compared Silver Peak NX and Cisco SD-WAN. Since we are primarily a Cisco infrastructure shop, it seemed to integrate better than Silver Peak. We liked the confirmed long-term support from Cisco we have grown accustomed to and did not want to take a chance on a new player. Nothing bad to say about Silver Peak, we just chose another route.

Return on Investment

Cisco SD-WAN

  • In my previous company, we had several production facilities across the US using Cisco's SD-WAN and it allowed the company to continue to provide for employees and our end customers when problems arose with circuits.
  • As I mentioned previously, vManage allowed the company to track when there are circuit outages in a really simple portal. Before Cisco's SD-WAN, we had to spend money on 3rd party monitoring.
  • Whenever there was an issue with the server, an employee could request assistance from anywhere instead of worrying about whether or not there was an IT employee present.

  • One outage on our main site cost over 500K in lost revenue for a day, Windstream was unapologetic for failing to set a QOS policy right during cutover.
  • We needed to get a building re-wired to get the install at one location going. Windstream said, let us quote it... It took them 2 months to get us a quote that was 4x higher than a local provider. Thankfully, this didn't impact the deployment schedule.
