Aruba Instant Review

Has good integration with ClearPass and brilliant support

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for basic Wi-Fi and also for the captive portal authentication with 802.1X MAC.

What is most valuable?

The integration with ClearPass is the most valuable feature. 

It also has good onboarding. It's a good product. 

What needs improvement?

The meshing could use improvement but aside from that nothing else really needs improvement. It meshes well but the product's channels need to be understood better. It's not like Cisco. You set up your indoor stuff and there are channels you must exclude from the mesh.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Aruba for the last five years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very good. I'm very impressed with it. I've been working with it for years. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Because it's Aruba, I can strap onto anything. We can use it anywhere. 

Maybe an outdoor range would be nice. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is brilliant.

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

The price is very well situated. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a nine out of ten. 

Since I bought this brought I would like to have Aruba Central for free.

The product technically works fantastic but if I'm going to spend a couple of thousand rands on buying an access point, I'd like to have Aruba Central for free, for the equipment that I've purchased. That would be nice without purchasing the licenses because we've already purchased the hardware.

My advice to someone considering this solution is to put it everywhere and get rid of Cisco.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
