"The most valuable feature is their support, they get better every day.""It has improved my organization in the way that we've got a much better wireless coverage than we had before, and secondly, we have the visibility of all the users.""The feature I find most valuable is the single pane of glass where you can configure a monitor view, all from one dashboard. For example, on the wireless side, you can configure it under the configuration panel, and then view statistics like location analytics, user analytics, etc.""There is no need to swap the hardware at all the locations, and importing the APs into the Dashboard was a simple and quick process.""You don't have to be a network engineer to use it.""The ability of the product to perform with simplicity of deployment make it a valuable solution.""The most valuable feature is the single pane of glass that gives you multisite visibility.""It can analyze the traffic that it is picking up from what may be a rogue access point, and it is able to identify those and send relevant notifications."

Cons
"There is also room for improvement in the reporting. It is not really good enough, according to our customers. So what we now usually do is use Power BI to get them the kinds of reports they want.""The company has not kept pace with developments."

"The pricing for this solution needs to be improved.""You can't really clone or replicate a device, that sort of feature would be useful. You can clone the site but you cannot clone the device.""Not a lot of training is available.""I am concerned about the fact that once your licensing expires the devices stop working and become a brick.""The MDM, however, is bad. We're using another MDM now because Meraki was so bad.""Third-party switches do not necessarily integrate easily with the system and this could be improved to allow for better adaptation.""The one issue that we have had is that the VPN tunnel would go down unless you worked out with the ISP that you would be using a static IP address on the WAN interface.""It would be helpful to have the ability to create a floor plan based on an existing PDF or JPEG, which is automatically converted into a usable network map."

"Licensing is around under 1000 pounds. The licensing is either one year, three years, five years or ten years and during the licensing, we can choose to renew it per year or per every three years. We've got a license for three years. It's about 160 or about 200 pounds each.""From a pricing perspective, they are still expensive.""The licensing fees are $180 USD, per AP, for three years.""It is said to be expensive.""The pricing for a small setup is only a few hundred dollars a year. The fee is subscription-based.""Typically, the license model is for one, three, and five years. They can just be a bit more flexible around it and look into providing an option for 24 months."
