What is most valuable?

Being a cloud solution has been great. Also, the reliability and functionality. For example, we had testing going on a year ago, in the spring. And we'd gotten a handful… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We used to have Help Desk tickets every day on our old wireless network. And since we've switched to Mojo, we've had zero. We've had no Help Desk tickets. Our old WiFi… more»

What needs improvement?

We're working with engineers on a new feature set that we would like. I'm not sure what I can say about it in public. It's just that nobody else has this. There's nothing… more»

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

Put it this way. Of every solution we looked at, every wireless solution, Mojo was a minimum of six figures cheaper. Minimum. Most of them were double, which again is… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

The reason we switched is because our old solution was horrible. It didn't work. The product didn't work. All the tickets that we were having just caused more issues and… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you go with Mojo, you're not going to be sorry. When it comes down to it, it's the best solution. Period. And how their model runs, and the support, I couldn't say a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated a lot of them. We put in a RFP and then weighted the different products: Cisco, Ruckus, Aerohive, Aruba, and Mojo. They were the five that competed against… more»

What is most valuable?

BeamFlex works great in changing environments by bouncing WiFi signals around obstacles.

How has it helped my organization?

It requires very little maintenance (unlike competitive products we have sold) and provides a consistently great WiFi environment.

What needs improvement?

They need more products in the lower-end range for smaller clients.

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

Pricing is very competitive for an enterprise solution. Licensing: Always carry the support contract on the controller (not needed on APs).

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

* Cisco enterprise - expensive and complicated, more APs needed to cover an area. * HPE Colubris - unreliable.

What other advice do I have?

It's a very good product, excellent technology that requires fewer access points than competitors, it's easy to manage, and cost competitive (compared with other… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Just about everything out there. It was between Ruckus and Aerohive, but ultimately, Ruckus BeamFlex performed better with our testing (fewer APs needed, worked around… more»

What is most valuable?

I can't say that there's anything valuable in the product now. We've reached end-of-life with it and are now getting an alternative solution.

What needs improvement?

The biggest issue was that Juniper stopped developing, so we had to look for another solution. If they were to continue development, I would like to see a decent portal functionality, WPA3, and support. Probably some kind of API as well.

What other advice do I have?

Deployment of the product took a few months and we used a consultant for that purpose. We have recently moved to implementing Aerohive. They are an ongoing business so the product is fully supported and it has the latest technology, and it's a cloud-based solution. I would rate the Juniper a seven out of 10.

What is most valuable?

* The ability to disable RRM or set hybrid RRM. This provides a more granular design of RF in the environment. * CLI controller/RF debugging.

How has it helped my organization?

Compared to other solutions, captive guest network is one of the best isolation and tunneling. All other features of RF are average.

What needs improvement?

* RRM * ATF * Ortho-Polarization * AP concurrent client processing

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

Expensive.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Switched to Cisco because of upper-level decision.

What other advice do I have?

I’ve been working with Cisco Wireless since 2008. Although CPI and controllers have come a long way, the AP is the limiting factor. There are a lot of assumptions in the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Aruba, Aerohive, Ruckus, UBNT, Mikrotik.

What do you think of Aruba Wireless?

What is our primary use case?

We have made a full 32-site school transition from Mary to Aruba wireless.

How has it helped my organization?

Reliability, stability, and best use of our network.

What is most valuable?

The Aruba 335-AP.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were stability issues, but only on initial deployment.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Very few scalability issues, mostly user error.

How is customer service and technical support?

Great support.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We used Meru. We switched to Aruba for the newer technologies they presented.

How was the initial setup?

It was pretty straightforward.
