Quotes From Members

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

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. When we decided to use it as our solution, we had planned to use it exactly for its ability to scale.""The technical support is 24/7 from the UA.""The fact that Aruba Wireless has a virtual controller onboard the internet access points makes it cheaper than other solutions."

"We use the solution for many of our smaller customers and the cloud management aspect of the solution is very good. If you compare it to other vendors that have a controller, it's much easier to manage the cloud-based solution because we travel a lot. It allows us to manage everything from any place.""The indoor WiFi connection works well.""Ubiquiti Wireless is a reasonably priced, easy to use, stable and reliable product.""This is a high-quality solution that allows us to provide wifi access points in challenging areas.""It's very easy to use. The hardware is very easy to use, compared to Microsoft. Microsoft is more complicated. It has software that is okay if you are familiar with it. In my opinion, Ubiquiti hardware is more heavy duty then Microsoft.""One of the nice features is the backup version control.""It's a well priced solution and as far as I'm concerned, it's enterprise class.""I like that it's cheaper and inexpensive. It's also easy to use."

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 »

"We tried to create an access point with built-in voice and sound that we could use in schools, for example. We tried to create something that could play sounds or messages out of the access points. We wanted to, for example, use it as a school bell instead of using other equipment. It didn't work very well. It turns out when you connect to the Ubiquiti Wireless access point, it's not possible to send simple messages (like what is going on in the canteen, or some news update for the school, etc.). We had to use the on-premises version, as the cloud version wouldn't allow for this.""Some of our customers have reported problems with their outdoor WiFi connections.""The product lacks some security features.""There is really nothing wrong with the product but there are ways the utility and features can be expanded to meet future demands.""They should make more advanced features for the power users. I am a technician and I am functional, but I do need some features that I find only in Microsoft.""Better third-party integration would be helpful because often, Ubiquity is a product that customers choose after they already have something else from another vendor like HPE.""There's one feature missing and that is automatic channel assignment.""They should have more VLAN features and a designing tool like a link planer."

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."

More Aruba Wireless Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price of this solution is ok.""The product is a very good price.""Right now the product is less expensive and of higher quality than other solutions.""The price is reasonable and there's only a one-time payment. We have had this for a long time and I haven't seen any additional fee after paying for the installation.""In South Africa, for some Cisco access points, it will cost you 10,000 Rand ($690 USD), whereas with Ubiquity that same access point will cost you less than 3,000 Rand ($210 USD).""The product is expensive."
