Cisco Wireless Review

Secure solution that enables us to do video and web conferencing

How has it helped my organization?

We don't have to use cables anymore and it gives us a variety of connections. We can do video conferencing and web conferencing, so it has been great. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is its security. Cisco is very well known for security.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In terms of performance, it's really good. I have never seen it go down, at least in the office environment. Deploying it in the factory may be our next use case. A lot of noise occurs in the factory, so it could be difficult to deploy a wireless solution there. That could be a challenge.

The factory environment requires more high-density capability and there are other challenges affecting the factory environment. It's a harsh environment, but I see that Cisco's user-case allows deployment in a factory environment.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is high. It could be cheaper. Cisco is known for its high pricing.

What other advice do I have?

Security and support are important factors when looking at this kind of solution. Cisco is more expensive but you have to compare the security and support you are getting. The support, in particular, is very critical, especially if you are in a conference call and the sound breaks off. You need them to get back to you quickly.

Cisco is a large company, the number-one company, and those are important factors when selecting a vendor. The other factor is the pricing, in addition to support and security.

I rate Cisco Wireless at 10 out of 10 because I have never had a problem. I am a happy customer.
