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 biggest adjustment improvement will come from a price adjustment because the price is quite high; it feels like premium pricing. I suggest shaving off 10 percent to 20 percent. That would help grow users and increase the number of clients.""
"We paid for a three-year contract last year. I am not sure about what we paid. It is certainly less expensive than Meraki."
"The price is reasonable."
"The reason we picked Ruckus, in addition to our long-standing relationship with Ruckus, is pretty much that the RFS characteristics of it seem to be the best."
"We don't pay any licensing fees, we purchase them."
"This is a very expensive solution."
"The price of Ruckus is about one third that of the similar Cisco solution."
"The setup that I have at the moment does not require licensing, although I am not sure whether a bigger project will mean that I have to spend more."
