We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The firewall integration is very important for the security of the connection."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to connect and broadcast to different networks without using a VLAN or a layer two switch, which allows you to easily create guest networks."
"This is the only product on the market currently that supports as many access points for wifi users."
"The product is a stable solution."
"I found that It's really good when comparing it to any other product or it is much better in terms of features that the customer requires."
"Fortinet FortiWLM is good for tracking assets, monitoring, and overall management."
"The most valuable feature is the level of security on the Wi-Fi network."
"Great management interface."

"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."
"This solution should be easier to set up in a production environment."
"The guest management features need to be improved by adding automation."
"The pricing model can be improved to encourage use by small business and individuals and the hardware could stand to be redesigned."

"In the next release, they could improve by adding a controller-less server, or architecture that is provided in other solutions, such as Aruba. This would be a great benefit for customers."

"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 coverage could be increased."
"The solution is stable but could improve."
"For indoor access points, there is a one-time cost, upfront, whereas outdoor access points have an annual fee."
"Fortinet would do something with their pricing model to attract smaller business users and eliminate the mandatory service contracts."

"This solution is reasonably priced."
