Aruba Wireless Previous Solutions

District Technology at a K-12 educational company or school with 1,001-5,000 employees
We previously used Extreme Networks. We switched from 802.11n to 802.11ac, and Aruba was rewarded the bid mainly due to cost. View full review »
Associate IT Director at a non-tech company with 51-200 employees
We did for a very brief time, it was a consumer "off-the-shelf" product to get us by in strategic locations in our building. It was not intended to be a long-term deployment. View full review »
Sr. Systems & Network Administrator at a tech vendor with 501-1,000 employees
The other way around, we have switched away from Aruba to Ruckus. Aruba‚Äôs poor performance and random upgrade issues caused too much time consuming maintenance and troubleshooting. Ruckus Unleashed has been flawless; performance almost doubled, and it is far easier to configure. View full review »

HPE Business Development Manager at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
I used to use Meraki but with Meraki, if you stop paying for the licenses, you basically don't own the device. Once you stop paying for the licensing, the device is pretty much dead. View full review »
Bhagat Singh
Head of IT Department with 201-500 employees
I wanted experience using more products. We were already using another product but I thought, "Okay, let's try Aruba this time and see what the feedback is like." I thought Aruba would give me better performance, after looking at the performance of the existing devices. When selecting a vendor, the most important factor is that support has to be there. I would look for constant support from any vendor. It can't be that the product is sold and after that there is no support. There has to be constant and quick support from the vendor.

Help Desk Coordinator & Media Analyst with 201-500 employees
With our previous system, we had to delete users who had not connected to our WiFi for a period of time. With this system, we did not have to worry about that. We used Cisco and switched because of the price. In order for us to get what we needed from them, it would have been too costly. View full review »

I used SonicPoint. The connection stability was very poor. Though, the firewalls worked well. View full review »

Network Administrator at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
I have used Cisco, Ruckus, D-Link, and Proxim. Aruba is equal or better than Cisco. The price and performance were the reason for the change. View full review »

We used Meru. We switched to Aruba for the newer technologies they presented. View full review »
Sr. Network Engineer at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
We had a small Cisco wireless environment originally and to upgrade or expand that environment it would have been a very expensive purchase. Also, instead of one controller that does everything we needed it to do, it would have taken two to three other devices with Cisco to make it work. View full review »
