I'm in a search of a Gateway solution for my organization. We have 200 employees and my budget is $400-800. 

I've been checking Citrix Gateway, Aruba Wireless, Ubiquiti, and others. 

What gateway do you recommend choosing for my company (based on the mentioned budget) and why? 

Update: I need just a gateway/router (no VPN). And, possibly, I need a basic firewall, I'm not sure.

Building is approximately 50K sq. ft. with 27 ft. ceiling with no racking or other tall obstructions. The amount of employees accessing the wifi ranges from as few as 1 and up to 20. Looking for stability and ability to fix issues remotely as this facility doesn't have an IT person on site.
