Good product, but high price per unit of bandwidth

Great product. We had limited access to bandwidth, and as a result had to turn to other options to ensure business data was able to be processed efficiently. The hardware was reliable and the results were impressive.

Adjusting to our environment was not much challenging but still room for improvement

Switch between Active and Passive mode creates some issues such as crash on the laptop, issues identified in relation with on-premise proxy servers. Time takes to identify the corporate network and non-corporate network

The standard licensing (shaping) limitation of 45mbps is just not enough in today's world of high-bandwidth demand. We use the PS to shape WAN traffic for both MPLS and Internet and will now have to purchase the 100mbps upgrade, which is quite costly. I am almost sure that this 100mbps will also run to its limit in some of our locations soon.
