What needs improvement?

Whenever you get an error it doesn't immediately tell you what the thing is that is causing the error. You have to sit down and research it. If it could say what error is causing the issue, it would… more»

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

Pricing and licensing are pretty good. I personally don't like the way it's licensed but everybody has their own things about that.

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

What is most valuable?

This solution gives you a lot of reporting capabilities and it has a very good interface.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an integration of services into one system, rather than having multiple systems to do multiple things. For example, ClearPass has everything in one.

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

The cost is perfect because the devices have a lifetime warranty, and the licensing is good as well. I have no complaints.

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

Prior to this, we were using a solution from Juniper Networks, but it was outdated and really old. We did a review of all the products and Aruba AirWave came out high, which is why we switched.

What other advice do I have?

This is a straightforward solution but I would suggest that somebody implement it for you. Also, make sure that they have a really good background in it. I would rate this product a nine out of ten.
