What is our primary use case?

I use Aruba wired and wireless switches as part of my network infrastructure.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are stability, ease of management, and the monitoring tool.

These switches offer high availability and support stacking.

The audit feature gives me the ability to trust Aruba. 

The layer three switches are very scalable and very reliable.

What needs improvement?

The command-line interface could be easier to use, perhaps having voice control.

I have approximately 100 switches and serve about 2,000 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

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

Our old environment was also built from Aruba products, which means that all of the components are compatible with each other.

The initial setup is very straightforward and very easy. In the last project that we deployed, I and one engineer configured about 100 switches in two days.

What about the implementation team?

Our network team includes two people who are responsible for deployment and maintenance.

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