Aruba Wireless Review

They provide the flexibility to choose different models depending on, for example, the number of APs you want to deploy.

Valuable Features:

The most valuable features of these wireless controllers for us are the advanced security and management features. They're excellent and provide our users with protection over-the-air.

Improvements to My Organization:

They've improved our clients' organizations by providing the flexibility to choose different models depending on, for example, the number of APs they want to deploy and other criteria. 

They're also easily upgradeable to higher versions and the licenses can be transferred easily.

Room for Improvement:

Aruba adds more and more features to them all the time, but having to buy additional licenses for new features can get pretty expensive, especially when a client wants to stay up-to-date.

Deployment Issues:

They deploy well without issues.

Stability Issues:

It's a very stable product. Right now, we have several deployments and we'll know whether there are problems with these controllers.

Scalability Issues:

The 7000 is highly scalable. You can start with a lower controller model, and as a client's requirement increases, you can always migrate to a newer model. They'll still have all the licenses that they previously purchased.

Initial Setup:

The initial setup for the 7000 is straightforward for us. We're trained and certified engineers. But for someone who isn't, it's very complex.

Other Solutions Considered:

We've done several migrations from competitive products, but Aruba is better because of the technology and the price. They also integrate well with other Aruba applications, such as ClearPass.
