Competitive pricing with an easy initial setup but needs better technical support

Pros and Cons

  • "The pricing is very competitive and the feature sets are very good. It compares well against more expensive options."
  • "The support needs improvement. The official support is kind of complex. It's not that straightforward compared to Cisco and Aruba."

What other advice do I have?

We are a customer and an end-user. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I've run an internal audit about the company's Wi-Fi solution properties, all the main metrics about the solution. I was told that there was interference between the channels due to the fact that we have many floors and the floors are where the conflict comes in. Even though the channels were set up automatically by the solution, there were too many APs on the same floor, and that caused the interference to become an issue. It was not caused by the specific solution, however, the fact that their solution…

High capacity, good stability, good scalability, and good support

What is our primary use case?

We are a reseller and integrator. We use this solution when our clients have a lot of users or devices that need to be connected to one IP. We use it for a high capacity of connections.

Pros and Cons

  • "Its high capacity is the most valuable. It is also very stable. It is way more stable than other platforms."
  • "Its security can be improved. It doesn't use Wireless IPS. Therefore, we have to combine WatchGuard that uses a Wireless IPS but is a separate solution. These two solutions work in conjunction. We are using the WatchGuard as a sensor and Wireless IPS, and Ruckus is like a platform that is used for the connectivity of the network."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution depending on the needs and the size of the company. For a higher connection capacity, I would recommend Ruckus Wireless. If you don't require a higher capacity, I would recommend Aruba Instant On or Ubiquiti. Ruckus Wireless is suitable for medium or large companies, and Ubiquiti and Aruba Instant On are suitable for small companies. I would rate Ruckus Wireless a nine out of ten.

Stable with good AI capabilities and helpful technical support

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for education customers.

Pros and Cons

  • "The Artificial Intelligence on offer is very useful."
  • "The support on offer to other vendors switching - like Aruba or Ruckus - could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

We are a Juniper distributor. I'm a reseller, not a direct end-user or customer. We use multiple deployment models, including on-premises and the cloud. I'd recommend the solution. It's a very, very scalable solution and also has very, very good and very powerful programmability and open API interfaces. If a company wants to get the most benefits from the solution, they need to spend some time with the programming engineers to explore the APIs and the interface. It would be a good solution for large enterprises. It could also work for smaller organizations. I'd rate the solution at a nine out…

Overall high quality, great customer service, and simple installation

What is our primary use case?

Some of my clients have used this product as a Mobility Express Solution and a Mobility Controller. There are numerous potential use cases for this product.

Pros and Cons

  • "The ability to make different types of networks, such as land networks, is the most valuable part of the solution."
  • "There are some areas of improvement needed in roaming and streaming."

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this product because it is easy to implement, and it has good performance with utilities that are needed within the office. I rate Cisco Wireless a nine out of ten.
