The setup for the APs is straightforward; however, you need to be extremely knowledgeable to set up ClearPass. View full review »

The setup was a little bit complicated. It really depends on the person. If you really don't know and it's your first time that you are touching an Aruba device, then it takes a lot of time. You're not going to get it, if you have never actually touched an Aruba Wireless Controller. You have to have an experienced engineer with you to show you what to do: how to add an AP, how to proceed with all the other configurations. Once you have had your hands on it a couple of times, then it becomes easier. View full review »

Initial setup was straightforward. We followed the very basic instructions (connect to the new WiFi network, then go to a website, make some simple changes, save, reboot, done); updated the firmware, and we were on our way. View full review »

The initial set up of Aruba Wireless is in the middle, i.e. not so easy and not so complex. You need to learn to understand the process through the provided documentation. View full review »

HPE Business Development Manager at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
The initial setup was pretty much straightforward to be honest. You only configure one AP and when you plug the other ones into the network, it recognizes that that AP is the master and gets the configuration off that. View full review »

Installation is relatively easy. Configuration was not all that complicated, but there were some forums online that helped us just in case. They shed light on the deep config options. We only had a summer to deploy. View full review »
