We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the application visibility, which is one of the main features."
"It is cloud-based. You can manage it remotely from anywhere in the world, and you don't have to be on-site, which is a very big advantage."
"I really don't have any problems with the stability of the product."
"The interface makes it easy to manage."
"Great architecturally based dashboard and the solution is accessible from anywhere."
"The ability to manage it remotely is the most valuable. If it has an internet connection, you can get to it. It is a great product for remote clinics. We kind of thought about doing this kind of standalone technology. Meraki is easy to manage. From a management perspective, it is the easiest to use, especially in the cloud. I like Meraki. I even have it in my home."
"It is cloud-based. It has a GUI rather than a command line, and it just works."
"The solution is easy to use."
"Having dual-band is important. Having compatibility with very old equipment on certain frequencies, for example on 2.4 and 5.8."
"I like the price, quality, and consistency of manufacturing."
"Easy to use and flexible."
"It's an excellent option for small businesses."
"Ubiquiti is easier to install than Mikrotik."
"Setting it up wasn't so complicated. It is reliable. Security-wise, we didn't have much trouble, but that could be due to our environment. We haven't had so many attacks, at least up till now."
"The most valuable features are ease of deployment, ease of use, and the interface."
"I like that it's cheaper and inexpensive. It's also easy to use."
"The price could be slightly better, but then again, we negotiate deals every time so the market price isn't really relevant."
"Cisco offers pretty expensive devices."
"The annual maintenance is something that needs to be changed."
"If they could work on the Meraki firewall hardware, and add SSL decryption as well as more application control and deep packet inspection, that would be ideal."
"They could also add some more controls for guest access. For example, when you have a captive portal, it would be nice to limit the amount of time users can stay connected per day. Right now, you can only configure the splash frequency. And you can set the connection for one hour, but you have to use the billing feature."
"The solution should be more secure."
"It is super expensive for what you get. I just wish it was less expensive."
"The Meraki platform needs better on-premises management options."
"Tech support is mostly remote and could be better."
"The production is not very stable in our experience."
"o if you are setting up any other third party product or any other different product, it sometimes can be a bit difficult. With Ubiquiti, you need to set up because you can adopt the product and that's it, where if it's not a Ubiquiti product it can sometimes be a difficult setup."
"The range and maybe the quality of the signal can be improved. I had a feeling that the range wasn't long enough. Unfortunately, beyond a certain range, the signal was too weak. If I'm not mistaken, it must have been something like 100 or more than 100 meters, but I'm not sure. So, one improvement I wish for this equipment is to have a longer range, but that could mainly be due to the model we're using."
"The solution needs to improve its features and offer more to the customer."
"In Ukraine at least, it's a problem when it comes to buying the hardware. For example, I made a request for 20 switches a few months ago. The solution needs to have worldwide availability."
"I would like a better explanation or better documentation on how to use the onboard spectrum analyzer."
"The external devices, the outdoor devices, are not so rugged. For example, for the weather that we have here in Florida, it doesn't hold up well even though it is supposed to be designed for outdoor use."
"It's not super expensive and it's not super cheap."
"It is super expensive for what you get. You also have to buy a license every year. Otherwise, it stops working."
"The solution could improve the licensing structure and the price is expensive."
"The pricing is based on a subscription and is a bit high at the moment."
"I would say that they have adequate pricing."
"Its price is higher than other products. It is above the expectation of customers. So, every time we need to fight for a good price."
"It is expensive, but it is a good product."
"The price/benefit ratio is great."
"The price has been fair for what I have been using it for. There is no license for this solution."
"There are no licensing fees for this solution, but the cost is on the higher side."
"The price of the solution is high and could be cheaper."
"This solution is cheaper compared to others."
"The product is expensive."
"The product is around $300 or $400 depending on the device. It's a one-time fee. There aren't ongoing licensing costs."
"I like the fact that it offers enterprise features at a cheap price. If you compare it with Cisco, it has most of the features that Cisco has been offering but at a lesser price. I am satisfied with its price."
"Ubiquiti Wireless is affordable."
