Provides a lot of reporting capabilities and has a good interface

What is our primary use case?

The main use case for this solution is reporting.

Pros and Cons

  • "This solution gives you a lot of reporting capabilities, and it has a very good interface."
  • "I would like to see an integration of services into one system, rather than having multiple systems to do multiple things."

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.

Helps people with troubleshooting so they get better use out of their technical staff

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case of this solution is to control access points through airwave. modify configs, and enhance RF tweaking.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has improved my organization by increasing troubleshooting opportunities which makes things more efficient."
  • "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 make my troubleshooting a lot quicker."

What other advice do I have?

I think everybody needs this solution. It helps a lot with technical troubleshooting and no matter what end products you have, Airwave is a good solution for everybody. I would rate it an eight and a half out of ten.
