Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The stability of the solution is very good.""The most valuable feature is that it provides a redundant wireless connection for a client.""The features I have found most valuable is that the solution creates a guest portal for guest networks, and setting up SSID authentication to the regular server.""You can handle all of the access points at once virtually instead of manually handling each one. You're able to populate all of the information to all of the access points through the virtual controller as well. It transforms everything it a single access point, which simplifies things.""In terms of stability, Aruba Instant is the best on the market.""The central management of multiple devices is the solution's most valuable aspect.""The integration with ClearPass is the most valuable feature.""The access it grants to wifi is the solution's most valuable feature."

Cons
"Technical support needs improvement. We use the forum for technical support assistance, but it's not enough. If you're talking with a technician, they're in India. They cannot give you the service that you need. Sometimes have problems with some personal services and technical support is not helpful in this area.""This solution would be improved if they supplied free software controllers.""The captive portal through Facebook doesn't work.""The solution should be able to support more users on the access points.""There is a problem in the preferred portal access points when I'm using the portal.""There was only ever one case in which an access point failed, but it was reintegrated. The issue was more of a matter of oversight. One part of the network had covered ten access points.""The meshing could use improvement but aside from that nothing else really needs improvement.""The reach of the solution could be improved. It could be a bit stronger."
