We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The triangulation feature can be used to determine where a person is in relation to the access point.""If you compare wired versus wireless, it's convenient. You don't need to have one place for connectivity. You can move around and it's easier. Sometimes it's a hassle to work with wires, which is why wireless is so convenient.""The cost is the most valuable aspect of this solution.""Has an extremely good feature set.""Ability to control the access points by groups."

More Mist Access Points Pros »

"The most valuable feature is the level of security on the Wi-Fi network.""I have found Ubiquiti WLAN scalable. We have approximately 200 users using the solution in my organization and do not plan to increase usage.""You can save backups of this controller locally and then I can export it to wherever I want.""Ubiquiti WLAN has been stable and is easy to install.""The solution is very easy to install.""Ubiquiti WLAN is stable.""Great management interface.""The pricing is very competitive and the feature sets are very good.

More Ubiquiti WLAN Pros »

"Configuration could be improved.""The user experience should be improved. It's not user-friendly.""The inter-functionality with other vendors was a negative for us.""There seems to be different versions of standards used in the wireless access points. In the future, it would be helpful if the solution could come up with some kind of universal standard for all devices and all access points."

More Mist Access Points Cons »

"Ubiquiti lacks troubleshooting tools. For example, there aren't tools that your clients can use to gather input on the AP itself. There's no visibility in the application layer or reporting. It doesn't have a lot of management features.""I have never used cloud solutions. My first approach would be something related to the cloud, and backups on the cloud, and maybe an easier way to connect to it because I have an on-premises environment.""The solution is stable but could improve.""The coverage could be increased.""The product needs to improve the user interface in the migration from old to new versions.""The solution could improve by having a cloud version. A cloud version is the easiest to configure anywhere in the world.""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."
