Pros
"Its configuration and deployment are the most valuable.""The support organization behind this product is extremely professional.""What our customers like the most is that this device is so rugged. It has very good performance and throughput. Its console is very easy to use and has many features, which makes it different from its competitors. Cloud IQ has all the features built into the console, whereas other solutions require you to integrate multiple solutions with their consoles. You don't need to add anything extra with Cloud IQ. With this single solution, you can do almost everything."

Cons
"They can improve just the onboarding process. More user information about the introduction to the product would be helpful. It would be good if they have a better user introduction to the new product because it is different than the prior version.""Having a wizard for customers who are just starting might be helpful.""Its price could be lower. It is a simplified solution, but it has price challenges. It is costly as compared to other solutions. It has almost everything. The only thing is that MAC is not possible on the cloud, and it has to be on-premises."

"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."
