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."
"We don't have any control on the pricing. This comes from Huawei in India. Pricing-wise, Huawei is very aggressive and competitive if you compare them to competitors, like Cisco, Aruba, and Ruckus. The Indian Huawei team tells us, "Just pick up the order and design the infrastructure. If there are any pricing challenge, we'll work on that and we will try to match things 100 percent.""
"Huawei comes at a cheaper price than competitors like Cisco and Aruba."
"It is not monthly. It is a kind of perpetual licensing. We pay once depending on the kind of services we need to deliver. There are no licensing fees."
"Its price is very good. This wireless system totally costs about 30,000 euros, and some of the other solutions cost about 45,000 euros. It is a difference of 15,000 euros, which is quite a lot of money."
