Aruba Wireless Review

Stable, good support, and scales well

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and Aruba Wireless is one of the network products that we implement for our customers. We offer it to our clients to provide wireless and cloud services.

What needs improvement?

Better integration with equipment from other vendors would ease the deployment process in some cases. It is also helpful because certain vendors concentrate more heavily on a certain side of the industry. For example, one may focus on security but neglect availability. Being able to integrate gives a better overall solution.

Security is something that can be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Aruba Wireless for about two years. The company has more than 10 years of experience.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Aruba Wireless is stable and we plan to continue using it in the future.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good, although it sometimes depends on who it is that handles the case. 

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

We deal with several wireless networking products from Aruba, Ruckus, and Brocade.

How was the initial setup?

Sometimes, the initial setup is complex. For example, if I need to integrate with other vendors then there can be issues and we have to do a lot of work to solve these kinds of problems.

The length of time required for deployment depends on the size and density of the network. There are a lot of parameters that dictate how much time it takes, but the average for us is a three to four-day deployment.

What about the implementation team?

We have a design team and a technical team who take care of the implementation and deployment. Most of the time, they consult with me if there's an issue with the design or they need more details. We provide a consulting service for this.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing Aruba Wireless concerns the design stage. I suggest trying to design everything using a single vendor. Do not use a multivendor approach because you will have issues with integrating systems together.

Overall, this is a good product and I recommend it.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
