Pros
"The most valuable feature of Aruba Wireless is application monitoring.""I like the way it groups and manages access points.""The technical support is very good.""It is easy to install and deploy.""The most valuable feature is the fact that it can work with many devices. It supports everything that we need it to.""Aruba Wireless is easily scaled between a lot of devices and a lot of endpoints.

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."

More Aruba Wireless Cons »

"The biggest issue was that Juniper stopped developing, so we had to look for another solution.""The support on offer to other vendors switching - like Aruba or Ruckus - could be improved."

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.""The access points are more cost-effective over some other providers, both in cost per AP and the option of a controller-less environment."
