- Centralized management in the cloud
- Handling of different types of transport: MPLS, Internet or LTE
- The minimum subscription time is three years, which makes the initial investment of the projects more expensive.
- The types of subscriptions that determine the accumulated bandwidth of the transport links generate a limitation to the additional solution that the hardware supports.
- Access to the Vmanage administration console must be from a previously established IP address, which removes flexibility of access to the cloud.

- Smoother UI transition
- Even greater flexibility
- Better cross-platform compatibility
- 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

- Outside help is not widely available
- Still needs some QoS
- Configuration might be easier
- Application visibility.
- Easy to deploy.
- Easy to use.
- The speed at which bugs are fixed could be improved.
Easy to manage all vEdge cEdge devices using vManage. Once we upgraded vEdge to latest version and ran into some issues. The capability they have to revert back versions is very smooth and we could revert back version in no time
Dashboard helps a lot to understand where the issues are right away. That gives head start in finding any issues very easily
Alarms also helps a lot in getting notifications on issues as soon as they occur
- Very scalable
- Zero-touch deployment is a huge bonus
- High availability
- Great support from Cisco
- With any newer technology, we had a lack of internal expertise and had to pay for professional assistance
- The licensing could be more straightforward and better packaged
- Works very well for helping cloud initiatives
- Easy management for small or large rollouts
- If you have a typical hub and spoke network, Cisco SD-WAN translates well
- Management - Centrally managed, it is easy to monitor, configure, and deploy.
- Security - Centrally-controlled, but locally run Firewall, IPS, URL-filtering, and more.
- SLAs - When using multiple circuits (or simply allowing cloud-based apps to be accessed directly to the internet instead of tunneled back) the ability to create SLAs for type of traffic, application-specific, or things even more granular than that
- 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.
- Amazing traffic load balance
- Security and reachability
- Easy to implement it
- Nothing. It's really easy to implement SD Wan.
- Cisco SD WAN has the best security solution with AMP/IPS-IDS.
- It has the ability to perform smart decisions based on MOS, which is a great way to determine if the connection is healthy.
