Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The cloud configuration is the most valuable feature of this solution. Watching in the cloud, propagating the actual devices themselves and the management of devices that are remote.""This solution is easy to use.""There is a limited lifetime warranty with the switches, so if we have any problems, the switch is replaced very quickly.""The solution's stability is really great. We found it very solid.""The most valuable feature is the Aruba Smart Rate Port.""The solution is very stable.""Aruba access points have a good transfer rate.""The solution is very reliable. It's easy to use with other solutions."

Cons
"In the next release, I would like to see network access control on the switches themselves. I would like to see security functionalities when it comes to monitoring the bit of the wireless section of the switches.""The firmware in this solution has a lot of bugs that become noticeable when you have complex implementations.""I am forced to consider changing products because other solutions have a better dashboard and a user-friendly interface.""The written documentation, all the available documentation, is often a little bit hard to find. The solution lacks documentation, especially on recent features. We have access directly to Aruba, Germany, so they are always helpful, but if you start, for instance, with something a little bit more complex like zero-touch provisioning, that would require a more comprehensive written piece.""The templates to automate our switches need improvement.""I would like to see the data center area improving by some added features in the future.""They should provide training courses for certification, and have it available on the internet.""The interface could be more user-friendly and the dashboard could be improved."
