Aruba Wireless Review

A Good Wireless LAN Solution

Valuable Features

1. The Integrated firewall

2. The captive portal authentication for guests

3. The modular configuration system (by profile and)

3. AppRF new system (from ArubaOS version 6.4)

4. Mutli-site Architecture (master local architecture)

5. Advantageous licensing system (by Access point and not by user, the license server feature from version 6.3).

Room for Improvement

1. The new version is not stable.

2. Teintroduce the Visuel-RF mapping system in the Aruba controllers.

3. Download the firmware without a support account

4. stabilization of clearpass

5. Prepare documentation that handles concepts and not "how to"
