Aruba Wireless Review

Review about Aruba Wireless

What is most valuable?

Aruba is the only other wireless vendor besides Cisco that offers the flexibility of using AP's in any combination of the 3 controller-based architectures.

How has it helped my organization?

Lots of Flexibility but with flexibility comes complexity. Flexibility is great for large organizations but the Aruba instant AP may be good for smaller organizations.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have worked with Aruba gear for 4 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Any issues I encountered were resolved quickly with an excellent TAC.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Aruba has a very scalable product with different hardwar, software and complementary products such as AirWave and ClearPass.

How are customer service and technical support?

TAC is really a 9+

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

I have worked with other great vendors like Cisco, Meraki, Motorola, etc.

How was the initial setup?

There are ways to sidestep the complexity available with Aruba, but if you do not need the advanced features of Aruba then Aruba instant or another vendor may suit your needs best.
