Cisco Wireless Review

Secure solution, it's easy to distribute the SSID, and I like the controller

What is our primary use case?

We use it to distribute our internet connection. We use it in some departments for accessing systems, but in the main, it is for internet access. The performance of the network, the connection and stability, are very good. Perfect.

What is most valuable?

The main features are that it's secure and it's easy to distribute the SSID and control it. I also like the controller.

What needs improvement?

There is a problem with the controller. When we have to restart the controller, it does not show the time. We have to manually configure the time when we restart it. I have read about this issue, to get some information, and all answers are about having to connect it with a time server, which is very difficult.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

As a wireless solution, it's very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

I tried to get support, to get a solution for this "time" problem I mentioned. We have other Cisco products and the support is perfect. But for the wireless, we haven't gotten an answer to this problem.

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

We were using another option. It was not professional, something like D-Link. We had to configure each router separately. That's why we use Cisco, because I like the controller.

There is a company here, a Cisco partner or distributor. They advised us to use the system, and they brought it to us.

I have also used another Cisco product but at another company, Cisco Meraki. It's easier in terms of the configuration and the cloud. I liked it.

How was the initial setup?

You only have to set up the controller and everything is working; all the configuration. I like it.

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

It's good to compare pricing, but it's Cisco and I trust Cisco.

What other advice do I have?

I would strongly advise any company, but especially in business, to use this wireless solution.

I rate Cisco Wireless at nine out of 10 because, as I said, I like the performance, stability, the easy implementation and the controller. There is just that one problem with the controller, so that's why I gave it a nine and not 10.
