Aruba Wireless Review

The central management feature and the solution's performance are valuable to us. Deployment is easy as well.

Valuable Features

Move valuable to us are the central management feature and the solution's performance. They're also easy to deploy in all our global locations.

Improvements to My Organization

We have about 40 offices around the world, and in every office we had a different wireless vendor. Our goal, then, was to have one standard solution for all our offices. Now, for example, when our sales team goes from Singapore to China to Belgium, they can just come into the local office and are automatically connected.

Room for Improvement

The AP's didn't automatically connect to our central office upon deployment.

Deployment Issues

We've had some deployment issues, such as the AP's didn't connect to our central office automatically.

Stability Issues

It's a stable solution.

Scalability Issues

It's very scalable. If one of our offices wants extra AP's, we can just ship them and they just need to plug them them. That's it.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Sometime technical support goes directly through Aruba, and other times it goes through a third party.

Previous Solutions

We were using several different vendors, including Cisco and some old HP's, and we wanted to standardized in all our offices. So, we switched to Aruba and now have central management.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was very straightforward. You just plug it in with a few settings.

Other Solutions Considered

We didn't look at other solutions as HP is the company standard.

Other Advice

You may need additional tools like ClearPass, for example, from Aruba.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We're partners.
