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

Pros
It has an aesthetically pleasing GUI for configuration.The most valuable feature of Aruba Wireless is application monitoring.It helps the user to have a better vision of what is happening in their network.I have found the Access Point (AP) group profile feature extremely useful. It makes deployments look easy.It has helped in making deployments easier.It delivers constantly, there is no break in the internet using these devices. It also automatically gets connected when the internet comes back. Failure is very low.The performance and the application monitor. You can select the applications you want to use and block on your networkWith the central management system, I'm able to access each device. I can configure one device and then it provisions all the other devices with the same configuration, rather than my having to configure them one by one.

The solution is easily managed compared to other wireless solutions.The solution's roaming feature is very nice. When you move to another place it automatically changes the access point. It's one of the most valuable features.That would be more of engineering at this point. I'm from more of the business side. It's pretty much doing the standard installations with portal integrations and integrations with the Mac.

Cons
The urgent areas of improvement would be customer support, better tuned default settings, and documentation.For a more senior tool, a local application monitoring related to IoT vendors would be useful.They should provide usage guides and solutions to frequent problems.They should simplify the configuration flow.Additional detailed reporting for client traffic would be a great addition.What I would like to have with these kinds of devices is the most enhanced security. For example, if I could apply security from wireless devices, that would be great. I would also like more enhanced reports on user adoption, who is getting what bandwidth.I would like to be able to customize Captive Portals.The management system would be better if it were more polished, if it had a better interface like, for example, Meraki

The solution should offer more integration with third-party servers and devices.The technical support needs to be improved. They also need to produce some more technical guides.Improving the visibility, control offered, and cloud management would all be very helpful. Also how you can monetize the information you get from Wi-Fi controllers should be improved.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Get multiple bids/quotes, and talk to the representatives about the limitations of the product; pretty standard.It's not expensive. That is the reason we switched to Aruba.Pricing is competitive. Licensing is needed to maintain access to the latest firmware, which wasn't made clear originally when we started with Arbua (or things changed, I'm not sure which). I would just say, make sure you budget for it.A recent change is that ClearPass licensing is superb. It counts user-based instead of device-based, for BYOD on-boarding.​AP signal strength and price. I know this is a competitive market, but APs should not cost so much if they do not cover a large area. ​The system was very good, but we needed to upgrade in order to adapt for our needs, and doing so with Aruba would have been more expensive. ​Besides paying for the APs, you need to pay a license each year for their use. Therefore, watch out for that and do the best you can to keep costs down.​I am aiding in transitioning my organization to a different wireless solution due to the cost. We need to expand our network and the cost of new APs and an upgraded controller have proved to be prohibitive compared to similar solutions on the market.​
