Pros

Cons
"For a more senior tool, a local application monitoring related to IoT vendors would be useful.""A lot of the access point commands are in the command line interface, versus being in the GUI.""There is a lot of information for users about the product, but it needs to be better organized so that solutions are easier to find.""The upgrades tend to be buggy and better testing is needed before they are released.""The urgent areas of improvement would be customer support, better tuned default settings, and documentation.""Better integration between the controller and the ClearPass portal would be a nice change.""Improvements to the GUI, such as being able to search in the Mobility Master, would be nice.""Aruba needs to be more competitive with newer products. Their legacy makes that more difficult for them."

"The solution doesn't have hotspots. Users can't set it up so that visitors can log in via Facebook or social media as they can at, for example, airports. D-Link should include hotspots that offer integration with social media. That way, visitors don't need to be asking people for passwords. They can just use Facebook.""It would definitely help if we had more advanced features for distributing bandwidth.""Password restriction: Sometimes we set a password and it uses that password but, after some days/months, the password gets changed and a few laptops still use old the password while a few use the new password. The password restriction option needs to improve.""Its interface and support system need much improvement. Sometimes, when we use the interface to reset the password and configure SSIDs, or some other changes, the "Save" option does not show and we have to go to some internal setting and then we can "save" the setting. The “Save” option should be in front of or below of the settings.""Sometimes we configure the SSID with a password but the same AP shows two WiFi connections with the same SSID name (one is protected by a password and another one give access without a password).""D-Link has some catching up to do in terms of advancing and improving its technology."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"If you compare it to other solutions then it's reasonably priced.""Get multiple bids/quotes, and talk to the representatives about the limitations of the product; pretty standard.""I think they should lower their prices.""Aruba is comparable to competing solutions when it comes to price.""The support pricing for Juniper Mist is higher than Aruba.""The price of Aruba Wireless should be cheaper.""Aruba is probably cheaper than Cisco, and yet you get all the things that you want.""I think it would be better if they lowered the price."

"D-Link pricing is very competitive when you consider other OEMs."
