Aruba Instant Review

Enables you to handle all of the access points at once virtually instead of manually handling each one

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a base for our site office. 

What is most valuable?

The virtual controller can handle up to 16 access points.

The features you get in the controller are excellent. 

You can handle all of the access points at once virtually instead of manually handling each one. You're able to populate all of the information to all of the access points through the virtual controller as well. It transforms everything it a single access point, which simplifies things.

What needs improvement?

The solution should be able to support more users on the access points.

The solution should allow for more roaming capabilities. If you're roaming from one access point to another, the process should be quicker.

The solution could use auto-channeling so that it could automatically pick up channel overlap.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is good. Right now we are using the solution across five offices with 100 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

The solution's technical support has been good.

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

We've used Huawei, which is also good. We're integrators, so we implement either solution according to the project requirements of our clients. I do find Aruba more stable and easier to use than Huawei, however.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

I'd recommend the solution; I find it more stable than other options.

I'd rate it nine out of ten.
