We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the ease of setup and deployment."
"The most valuable feature is reliability."
"The most valuable features are price, quality, and performance."
"I like the way that it integrates with the ClearPass security system on-site."
"The GUI is user-friendly and the dashboards are good."
"All the features are available, even including the security. The access point enables the matching of any connectivity."
"I have found the technical support to be one of the most valuable features."
"It is easy to deploy, and it is not that complicated. There are a lot of systems that are very complicated, and they require a special kind of training. Their response is also very slow, especially with the Chinese vendors, but with Cambium, we have not faced any issues. Everything is going well in terms of cooperation from Cambium. We are happy with them, their services, their cooperation, and their quick response. They are just amazing."
"It's a good product and works well when there is a lot of interference."
"The initial setup is easy to handle. It's quite simple."
"Technical support has been good."
"The claim management feature is exceedingly simple."
"The feature that I really liked is the mesh feature. Currently, we are in quarantine, and the request of home users is that they need to cover the whole house or the whole indoor house. Mesh solution works really nice in Cambium environment. Being able to set up access points in advance is a good feature. It lets you set up the whole environment in your lab or any other place before deploying the access points."
"The pricing of the product is very, very reasonable."
"One could say that Cambium is a scalable solution."
"From the commercial-side the pricing side is fine but in other aspects, it could be lowered."
"The integration should be better."
"Technical support is important to me and I feel that it is something that can be improved."
"Right now, the integration between the support that you are getting from Hewlett-Packard, which is the parent company, and Aruba, they're not meshing together."
"In the next release, the security should be improved by including support for WPA3."
"We have had stability issues with some types of portable devices."
"This solution needs different models that are more specialized for certain customers."
"The installation and configuration are a bit complex."
"The range of the product is disappointing so far."
"Pricing tends to be higher than its competitors."
"If they could move from the fixed wireless point to mobile, it will make a big change in the market. The cnPilot coverage should be covering big spaces. It should also have an external antenna, not a built-in antenna."
"The Cambium user interface and configuration should be improved."
"It has voucher generation. These vouchers are provided to the customers. It would be great if there is a possibility to integrate these vouchers with the system that vendors use to print the receipts. For example, if you go to Starbucks, they provide you a receipt, and in that receipt, you have the code for the Wi-Fi network. I would like some kind of integration or API that can be integrated into any other system for generating such receipts. It would be a really nice feature. It has the cnMaestro portal that normally an integrator sets up. When you deploy this solution to a user, rather than generating a Cambium account, I would like to share this console with the users so that they can at least see the stability of the network and not necessarily trust what I said. It also allows the customers in visualizing the way that they are connecting and the way the network is behaving. I have been in touch with the Cambium team for these features, but they don't yet have the final answer. It is kind of hard to get these solutions immediately. It is a bit challenging to bring these devices to Lima, Peru, or to get Cambium from the distributors. They need to import these devices."
"The solution needs to add an LTE solution and/or something in 3.5GHz."
"The installation is difficult."
"It is more affordable than Cisco."
"The price of this solution is approximately 1,000,000 ESP ($6,750 USD)."
"The price of this solution is better than some other vendors."
"When it comes to licensing costs we have been using the Cambium devices on a trial basis."
"There are no licensing fees, it's a one-time cost."
"I think the pricing is fine for Cambium."
"Its price is in the middle range."
