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»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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?

The most valuable feature is the ability to connect and broadcast to different networks without using a VLAN or a layer two switch, which allows you to easily create guest networks. This is a very… more»

What needs improvement?

The guest management features need to be improved by adding automation. There is a facility for guest management through a portal, but it should be automatic. As it is now, the IT person has to edit… more»

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

For indoor access points, there is a one-time cost, upfront, whereas outdoor access points have an annual fee.

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

We have deployed solutions from D-Link and NETGEAR for certain clients, although they have not needed to have the depth of features that are offered by Fortinet Wireless. These include both security… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Compared to some of the wireless solutions by Cisco, Aruba, and HP, this product is a little bit costly. However, Fortinet has good security and other good features that the customers are interested… more»

What is most valuable?

The central management of multiple devices is the solution's most valuable aspect. The solution is very user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

The solution, as it is, is perfect for us right now. There isn't any aspect that needs to be simplified.

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

The price is fairly reasonable. It may be a bit expensive for some companies, but for us, it's worth every penny.

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

We did use a different solution, but it was medium-class and not really comparable to Aruba. It might have been D-Link or something similar.

What other advice do I have?

We work off the latest version of the solution. I'm just using the system now for the management of devices. I haven't been adding devices recently, but in the last couple of years of using it, I… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were considering Cisco at the time, but Aruba had a better price point. Our supplier actually suggested Aruba as an optimal solution for us.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the stability. It works and doesn't stop.

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, we're waiting on is the new standard WiFi 6. That's really where the research comes into. With wifi coming out, we're going to refresh everything. Hence we're going to look at the top three players. I'd like better… more»

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

After the third year, because it's Cisco, the prices go higher.

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

We previously used Aruba Wireless. We switched because of the price. It wasn't my choice, it was my client's choice.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to someone considering this solution would be to use the white paper comparisons, they're excellent. Particularly not a newspaper review of a product, as it comes out of the box. That does nothing. But it has to really be an… more»

Manager, ICT and Partnerships at a comms service provider with 201-500 employees
Oct 28 2019

What is most valuable?

That would be more of engineering at this point. I'm from more of the business side. It's pretty much doing the standard installations with portal integrations and integrations with the Mac.

What needs improvement?

Improving the visibility, control offered, and cloud management would all be very helpful. Also how you can monetize the information you get from Wi-Fi controllers should be improved.

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

We have different vendors we work with. We work with Cisco and Aruba as well.

What other advice do I have?

It's a pretty good solution. The design has to be right. If the design is done properly and the conditions are right, it's a stellar product. It would probably be a seven or eight out of ten.
