Anonymous UserNetwork and Security Consultant at a insurance company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"It's a pretty good value, but not great. Pricing is on a yearly basis for the Meraki solution."
"The price is good, but it could be improved."
"You have to renew your contract every year, or for three or for five years. If you do not pay right away they will suspend your subscription."
"The pricing is based on a subscription and is a bit high at the moment."
"This solution is quite costly and there are costs in addition to the licensing fees."
"This solution is slightly more expensive than others, such as Ruckus Wi-Fi."
"It's not super expensive and it's not super cheap."
"The cost is not so much for Wireless LAN, but when you have to get the security license, it costs a lot."
