Aruba Wireless Review

Straightforward to set up, good stability, and the client match feature is helpful

What is our primary use case?

I am a system integratorĀ and Aruba Wireless is one of the network infrastructure products that IĀ have experience with. We have customers using versions all the way from AP-100 to AP-535.

We have these devices in many industries, with a focus on educational institutions.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the client match. This feature continually monitors the client and provides automatic load-balancing, as well as other advanced features.

What needs improvement?

Improvements to the GUI, such as being able to search in the Mobility Master, would be nice. It is hard to find and provision APs when you have a substantial install base.

I have been using Aruba Wireless since 2007.

The stability has been great.

We haven't had any trouble with scalability. 75% of our clients are using Aruba Wireless.

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

I have a lot of experience with wireless networking products from Aruba and Juniper. I also have some experience with Ruckus.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is pretty straightforward and the deployment is quick. With our experience, it is pretty easy to do.

What about the implementation team?

We integrate Aruba Wireless and other devices for our customers.
