It's totally managed by Software defined on-premises Controller and this controller is easy very to handle.

What is most valuable?

OmniAccess Stellar AP1230 Series is better than CISCO highest model Aironet 3800i AP in terms of quality, user capacity, coverage, performance and price. Moreover, there's no Hardware Controller, it's totally managed by a software defined on-premises Controller which is easy very to handle.

Owner is highly satisfied based on OmniAccess WLAN and they are getting more performance than expected.

What needs improvement?

OmniVista 2500 managed Software defined Controller with OmniAccess Stellar AP1230 Series AP cost is very cheap compared to Cisco HW Controller or Cloud Controller or Virtual controller with Aironet 3800i AP. Besides, OmniVista 2500 manageability and AP performance is wonderful.

An in-house, as this configuration is very simple.
