Cisco Wireless Review

The most valuable feature for us is the management of the systems.


What is our primary use case?

Right now, this is our primary connection for the network. We have all of our end devices connect to that. All workers connect to wireless, rather than a wired connection, so they all have laptops. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is management of the systems. We can easily access all features.

What needs improvement?

Probably more in terms of how much power it's using. Right now it just seems like it doesn't have enough power. Maybe that is all indicated, but says exactly how much power it's using.

When it comes to wireless controllers you have issues where you want to take an access point computer to a wireless controller, you have to configure the iOS for it. That's just cumbersome and it takes time. It just is not as convenient so not having to do that would be nice. I think it's a little more complicated than that to convert the iOS file when you're doing the wireless controller where you're going to have them converted.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the power was an issue for us recently. The access point seems to have enough power, but it turns out it did not have enough power.

How is customer service and technical support?

I did not use technical support. After an hour of trouble-shooting, I figured it out on my own.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We have prior experience with Cisco Meraki, which is a powerful solution.

How was the initial setup?

It's fairly straightforward. They are not always wireless, and that can cause some complications. But, otherwise it is not complicated at all.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: I am a reseller.
