It is quite expensive, but the manageability is simple and it is easy to work on

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is for streaming access to the personal devices of students and staff for guest wifi and connection. So we provide corporate access to devices. They use it for media streaming, for social networking, for learning solutions. Most people don't connect through land cable anymore - they all go for wireless options.

Pros and Cons

  • "I like that it has integrated the cost of our network access."
  • "The technical scalability is easy, but the license scalability is quite tricky."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others is to understand the use case properly before deploying any solution. If you don't have a complex use case and if you can't afford it, don't get Cisco. But if you have a complex use case with a high frequency, high bandwidth of data usage in a wireless network, Cisco is the right product for you. The licensing strategy and the pricing could be improved, but it is a good solution. I rate it a seven out of ten.

Simple to use, great for outdoor usage and easy to disguise

What is our primary use case?

The solution is mainly used by carriers or for government usage. It's not really designed for normal usage.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable aspect of the solution is the size of the outdoor access points. It's great and you can disguise them quite well."
  • "The pricing, when compared to Ubiquiti, isn't competitive enough. If you want to have a Government or Public sector client they will ask why they should pay 200 euros if they can get something for 40 euros."

What other advice do I have?

We're Ruckus reseller and implementors. This solution is very high-quality. I'd advise other organizations to look for the best solutions for their situation. However, I know how difficult this is to sell. It's difficult to sell quality when organizations just want to see the price tag. This is especially true in the government and public sector, that are always constrained by budgets. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. It's a very good product. It's a high-end product and it plays in the right league. We do have customers who are willing to spend money, but it's very difficult to find…

Easy to setup and has good support but device conductivity problems and is expensive

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for small operations, for example, offices and hotels.

What needs improvement?

We have problems with conductivity with the product. When we move around the connection is not stable and drops off.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have not been using the solution for very long.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The production is not very stable in our experience.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The product is scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The customer support was decent, we had no issues.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used Aruba wireless products as well, and they are better.

How was the initial setup?
