More Aruba Wireless Pros »

"Ability to control the access points by groups.""If you compare wired versus wireless, it's convenient. You don't need to have one place for connectivity. You can move around and it's easier. Sometimes it's a hassle to work with wires, which is why wireless is so convenient.""The cost is the most valuable aspect of this solution."

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 »

"Configuration could be improved.""There seems to be different versions of standards used in the wireless access points. In the future, it would be helpful if the solution could come up with some kind of universal standard for all devices and all access points.""The user experience should be improved. It's not user-friendly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
