Aruba Switches Review

Good security, stable, and a lifetime warranty is available, but the price should be reduced

What is our primary use case?

We use Aruba switches as part of our network infrastructure.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the security that these switches provide.

What needs improvement?

We would like to see centralized, cloud-based management.

If the price were lower then it would be more competitive with other products by vendors such as Cisco and Ruckus.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Aruba switches for more than ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In our experience, this is a stable product. Once they are configured, you rarely get any problems.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have rarely had problems with our switches. When there is an issue with the hardware, it is replaced on the spot because we bought the lifetime limited warranty for them.

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

The price of these switches is high.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The most popular vendors for this type of product in the UAE are Cisco, HPE, and Ruckus.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
