Researched Cisco Wireless but chose Mojo Networks: Simple to use with good stability and scalability
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable features of this solution are the Cisco CleanAir and Cisco RRM.
Our organization has improved using this product because it helps enhance user experience. We use video communication a lot, like Skype. We used to get a lot of interference before and had a lot of issues during wireless voice or video calls. We get greater speed and performance with wireless now. It is nearly the same as a wired network.
Wireless access has enabled users to be mobile and as a result, more productive.
This increased mobility has helped our organization. We can talk to one another from different locations and stay in constant contact and with employees across the enterprise. Everyone has access to up-to-the-minute communications and all documents and applications on our network.
Security is an important feature for my customers, and I am able to offer this to them with our Cisco products.
It helps with the visibility on our network.
You need to learn the technology but after that the setup is easy.
The initial setup was quite easy. We have a very good relationship with our integrator and our integrator has a good relationship with Cisco. The integrator that installs Cisco is quite knowledgeable about the technology. They are trained and have a good relationship with their tech. We cannot be experts in each domain and we have to be supported by an integrator.
The stability of the solution has been good. We haven't had any issues.
The fact that they are autonomous and can function even without access to the management panel is the most valuable aspect of this solution.
The most important feature is ease of use. We can simply take an access point and plug it in, then it is automatically configured for us.
For support, we do not have to deal with a whole phone menu tree. You get to talk to an engineer right away.
We can see what the network is being used for or where problems may be.
We have found Mojo to be critical for us because of its patented security and its wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS). It is unique in the market.
It has given us a huge leg-up when competing with other managed service providers who use different vendors because of the visibility it gives us to customers' traffic for troubleshooting purposes.
Their Cognitive WiFi analytics (Mojo Aware) is the biggest feature on their dashboard. It helps us know where the problem, so we don't have to spend time with the customer diagnosing it.
I would like to see less dependency on other products such as ISE and Prime for certain implementations.
The product could be improved with interference reduction. Because wireless frequency interferes with microwave or Bluetooth technologies, this causes issues. A lot of users still use legacy wireless adapters and black box and they do not experience the speed that they could get using the latest technologies. The number of devices on the market makes wireless communications complex. If the problem of interference could be resolved it would further improve utility and ease of system design.
The new licensing has no added value and seems to be Cisco's effort to take advantage of customers.
Improvements can be made to the telemetry. The licensing gets in the way here. It makes it impossible to record the different flows across the wireless network.
The classic Cisco wireless interface is difficult for users to learn.
The configuration interface could be easier. They should make roaming easier and should fix it so that when you cross a building you can keep the signal.
When you integrate a network access control with authentication with an ISE engine it's really complicated to put in place.
No product can be a ten out of ten and there are some security issues.
The solution is a bit pricier than Cisco.
The user interface needs improvement. It could be a little bit more user-friendly.
The user interface could use improvement, and Mojo is working on it. The features and functions are in two different places, and they are in the process of moving them into one place.
Further expanding the API and access to even more diagnostics, as I have found a few limitations when I am dealing with them right now.
They could use more additional application security and network security features. They could add on to the WiFi as a selling point. It would be nice to be able to say to the WiFi users, "We will protect you against viruses and malware, so you don't have to purchase that."
Needs greater simplicity in the management portal. Currently, the Mojo portal presents different “apps” to configure the devices, create splash pages, configure security settings, and monitor the network. This can be confusing, although Mojo has made great strides in combining these into “Aware”.
The RF signalling and data analytics parts should be improved.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
The cost model is expensive.
I think that the solution is expensive because the customer has to pay for a full year, at a minimum, in up-front costs.
Cisco WiFi 1572 is very expensive locally and our budget for this year is used.
It's a bit expensive but it's professional and works properly.
This product's pricing is good. It's not too expensive.
I feel the product's pricing is a good value.
The pricing is okay. I believe it is competitively priced. But it is not just the price by itself, it's the price and the technical features. The features also play a big role. It has to give me the relevant output.
In Australian dollars, we buy it for five years at $1,200.
The pricing was a good value and substantially less than some of the other products that we looked at. In some cases, with some of the big names, this product was even close to half the price.
The license is provided per access point, so you buy an access point and you use it.
They have been a great price competitor against some of the other big brands, like Meraki, especially for cloud-based WiFi. However, Meraki has been more expensive. They beat Meraki on features for the WiFi, which makes them a better choice even if the price is the same.
There are other solutions, like Ubiquiti, that have lowered their prices, which sometimes makes the argument to go with them. However, we do not bake in the WiFi for other vendors into our managed services, because they do not meet our standard offering.
Pricing includes the planning tools, management, security, analytics, and advanced guest WiFi capabilities. It's always better to buy the longest term available for the best ROI. However, device will continue to function without valid cloud license.
Of every solution we looked at, every wireless solution, Mojo was a minimum of six figures cheaper. Minimum. Most of them were double, which again is unheard of. Not only do you get all the feature benefits, like everything is there, everything just works, but at the same time, it was a no-brainer, because of the cost. It's almost like you hit the lottery.
