Aruba Airwave Review

Provides a lot of reporting capabilities and has a good interface


What is our primary use case?

The main use case for this solution is reporting.

What is most valuable?

This solution gives you a lot of reporting capabilities and it has a very good interface.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an integration of services into one system, rather than having multiple systems to do multiple things. For example, ClearPass has everything in one.

For how long have I used the solution?

Approximately two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In terms of stability, I have zero issues with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I cannot comment on the scalability because the solution is within my building, and the number of users doesn't change.

Currently, it is used by thirty to sixty people at the maximum.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not dealt with the technical support for AirWave. We have dealt with them for the ClearPass product and Aruba, but not for this solution.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to this, we were using a solution from Juniper Networks, but it was outdated and really old. We did a review of all the products and Aruba AirWave came out high, which is why we switched. 

How was the initial setup?

There are two staff members who maintain everything.

What about the implementation team?

The initial setup was done by a contractor, who was very good. It was with a company named MDS.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost is perfect because the devices have a lifetime warranty, and the licensing is good as well. I have no complaints.

What other advice do I have?

This is a straightforward solution but I would suggest that somebody implement it for you. Also, make sure that they have a really good background in it.

I would rate this product a nine out of ten.
