Cons
"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.""Better integration with equipment from other vendors would ease the deployment process in some cases."

More Aruba Wireless Cons »

"The strength of the signal from the access points could be improved.""Switching devices requires reconfiguration from scratch.""The downside is the interface changes, where they are constantly doing firmware updates.""I have found they need to work on the stability of the solution.""The support needs improvement. The official support is kind of complex. It's not that straightforward compared to Cisco and Aruba.""Largely we're happy with the product, however, the firmware deployments could maybe be managed a little bit differently.""The coverage could be increased.""The solution is stable but could improve."
