"The radius and wireless features are the most valuable aspects of the solution.""The cost and versatility are the solution's most valuable features. You can do anything with them if you know how to.

More 3Com H3C Switches Cons »

"The queuing functionality needs improvement. The initial setup could be simplified.""They could improve their product if they set, for instance, a controller for wireless LAN. That would allow them to really have something more than an access point.""The user interface allows you to do a lot of things, but it is not user-friendly.""In the Israeli market, we are in need of Hebrew support.""I would like to see a cluster feature added, where multiple devices can be configured and managed as one. One is in a standby state while the other is active, and if one fails then the other takes over.""The biggest thing that needs improvement is the support.""The solution's website isn't that good. When I go to it, I can't find what I'm looking for. However, if I go to a third party's website, I can easily find the information.""The solution needs to improve its security firewalls and mirror that of, for example, Sophos, or FortiGate."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost could be improved, but it is cheaper than the others."

More 3Com H3C Switches Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This product is a one-time purchase.""In our last project, we used two hundred units and the price was approximately 500 Shekels ($140 USD).""There is no licensing fee in addition to the hardware, but we do pay an annual fee for support.""This product is cheaper than competing products by other vendors.""There are not any external or hidden costs.""The price-performance is great.""MikroTik is very cost-effective and quite good for the price. It performs very well. For one of our customers, the existing setup comprises Cisco Catalyst switches, and it is about 10 to 15 years old. We're looking into upgrading in a cost-effective way to get the performance and yet still be at par with the quality and expectations that customers have from Cisco. Price-wise, Cisco is really expensive, and customers are expecting something different than Cisco so that they can save on IT costs. They don't have the same budget that they had before when they installed Cisco products. That's why they're looking for a solution that can provide performance and features without too much money or investment. We're looking at some alternative brands, such as NETGEAR and MikroTik, to support our proposal.""The main reason we use this solution is for the price — it's very cheap."
