None. Never seen a scalability issue.

How are customer service and technical support?

Excellent.

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

None. Aruba Wireless was the first and has remained til today.

How was the initial setup?

You need training on configuration of Aruba products since it deals with a vast range of technology apart from wireless.

A recent change is that ClearPass licensing is superb. It counts user-based instead of device-based, for BYOD on-boarding.

Cisco.

Excellent support and stable product.
