We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I like the way it groups and manages access points."
"The technical support is very good."
"It is easy to install and deploy."
"The most valuable feature is the fact that it can work with many devices. It supports everything that we need it to."
"Aruba Wireless is easily scaled between a lot of devices and a lot of endpoints. When we decided to use it as our solution, we had planned to use it exactly for its ability to scale."
"The technical support is 24/7 from the UA."
"The fact that Aruba Wireless has a virtual controller onboard the internet access points makes it cheaper than other solutions."
"It has an aesthetically pleasing GUI for configuration."
"The solution is extremely easy to install. You just add them and in a few clicks, they are ready to go."
"This product is user-friendly and we can manage it as per the requirements of the user."
"D-Link is a good product that is quite affordable and I recommend it."
"The most valuable feature is the level of security on the Wi-Fi network."
"Great management interface."
"The most beneficial thing about Ubiquiti is that it is simple to deploy."
"The solution is scalable."
"The pricing is very competitive and the feature sets are very good. It compares well against more expensive options."
"All of the interfacing is very good."
"Ubiquiti WLAN has been stable and is easy to install."
"I have found Ubiquiti WLAN scalable. We have approximately 200 users using the solution in my organization and do not plan to increase usage."
"A lot of the access point commands are in the command line interface, versus being in the GUI."
"There is a lot of information for users about the product, but it needs to be better organized so that solutions are easier to find."
"The upgrades tend to be buggy and better testing is needed before they are released."
"The urgent areas of improvement would be customer support, better tuned default settings, and documentation."
"Better integration between the controller and the ClearPass portal would be a nice change."
"Improvements to the GUI, such as being able to search in the Mobility Master, would be nice."
"Aruba needs to be more competitive with newer products. Their legacy makes that more difficult for them."
"Better integration with equipment from other vendors would ease the deployment process in some cases."
"The solution doesn't have hotspots. Users can't set it up so that visitors can log in via Facebook or social media as they can at, for example, airports. D-Link should include hotspots that offer integration with social media. That way, visitors don't need to be asking people for passwords. They can just use Facebook."
"It would definitely help if we had more advanced features for distributing bandwidth."
"Password restriction: Sometimes we set a password and it uses that password but, after some days/months, the password gets changed and a few laptops still use old the password while a few use the new password. The password restriction option needs to improve."
"Its interface and support system need much improvement. Sometimes, when we use the interface to reset the password and configure SSIDs, or some other changes, the "Save" option does not show and we have to go to some internal setting and then we can "save" the setting. The “Save” option should be in front of or below of the settings."
"Sometimes we configure the SSID with a password but the same AP shows two WiFi connections with the same SSID name (one is protected by a password and another one give access without a password)."
"D-Link has some catching up to do in terms of advancing and improving its technology."
"The strength of the signal from the access points could be improved."
"Switching devices requires reconfiguration from scratch."
"The downside is the interface changes, where they are constantly doing firmware updates."
"I have found they need to work on the stability of the solution."
"The support needs improvement. The official support is kind of complex. It's not that straightforward compared to Cisco and Aruba."
"Largely we're happy with the product, however, the firmware deployments could maybe be managed a little bit differently."
"The coverage could be increased."
"The solution is stable but could improve."
"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."
"D-Link pricing is very competitive when you consider other OEMs."
"This solution is reasonably priced."
"This product is more cost-effective than some others on the market."
"It is a cost-effective solution."
"There is no licensing cost for this solution."
"There is a license required for this solution."
UniFi is a revolutionary Wi-Fi system that combines Enterprise performance, unlimited scalability, a central management controller and disruptive pricing.
