What do you like best?
Security, the price, the idea of it. There is not much more to say. Fortunately for us we did do a trial which did not go well.
What do you dislike?
So many technical issues. All of the products from Cisco that we have deployed have been nothing but a headache.We had to move on to a new product which is still glitchy but works better than the Cisco version.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It does deploy to the cloud and does offer multiple options for cloud services as well as security
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Absolutely must try first to see if it is a good fit for your needs, and if you can manage.

Worst product ever.

Cisco changed the way the CSR is managed between versions 16.6.1 and 16.7.1 in a non-backwards compatible way and said nothing about it.
What this means is, if you planned to use DMVPN in an HA config on AWS, you can ignore the last 5+ years of documentation. None of it works now.
We're stuck on ver. 16.6.1 unless we re-architecht our AWS infrastructure at this point.
Cisco waits 3+ months after a new IOS XE is released before making it available to AWS users. So, if there are critical or remotely exploitable bugs... you're out of luck.
You say a new version has come out and you're ready to upgrade? Good luck with that. The only way to upgrade is to back up your config and create entirely new VMs with new ENIs, etc. Far from painless.
Found a bug? Get ready to keep it to yourself as AWS could care less and they won't inform Cisco. In fact, there's no way to inform Cisco without purchasing a support contract - just to tell them you've found a bug.
For a product that costs approximately $7,000/year to use in the default config, some support should be included.
I cannot recommend this product to anyone. Explore the alternatives.

What do you like best?
How I can login online and adjust settings, contacts, and all phone router settings
What do you dislike?
Getting to the settings online is not the most user friendly
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Programming the phone and updating contacts is very easy and quick. The problem of having contacts that are said or easily changeable was people leave the company.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
None

we were able to quickly spin up the instance with little overhead.
ofcourse it needed some prework interms of having the VPN , VPC setup before starting to use. the free trial of 30 days was sweet cos we were doing a POC and were able to complete that with no issues. thank you CISCO / AWS
