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."
"The cost model is expensive."
"Cisco licensing is usually provided on a yearly basis rather than monthly. You can get a hardware SLA or hardware and software SLA for a period of years. Longer terms influence the level of support that you get when it comes to Cisco SLA."
"Cost is one of the reasons why we are switching to Aruba. Aruba is significantly lower than Cisco in price. We do the licensing on a three-year basis. Cisco makes licensing very difficult."
"The price of this product is reasonable."
"This is an expensive product."
"Cisco is an expensive solution and considering the price, it should perform better."
"The product could be priced better."
"Cisco Wireless is a little bit expensive when compared to other solutions."
