What is most valuable?

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 a very… more »

What needs improvement?

The guest management features need to be improved by adding automation. There is a facility for guest management through a portal, but it should be automatic. As it is now, the IT person has to edit… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

For indoor access points, there is a one-time cost, upfront, whereas outdoor access points have an annual fee.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have deployed solutions from D-Link and NETGEAR for certain clients, although they have not needed to have the depth of features that are offered by Fortinet Wireless. These include both security… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Compared to some of the wireless solutions by Cisco, Aruba, and HP, this product is a little bit costly. However, Fortinet has good security and other good features that the customers are interested… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution has great integration capabilities. It offers a lot of helpful common features. The solution is quite stable and very robust.

What needs improvement?

The solution is quite expensive. If they could make the cost a bit lower, that would be helpful. It's pricey compared to, for example, D-Link or TP-Link. Other commonly used products offer more competitive pricing. The solution should offer more simplified tools. There needs to be better visibility… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Their pricing is on-par with Cisco. It's definitely not the cheapest on the market. It's on the higher end in terms of price. For example, you need to purchase extra tools in order to get better monitoring and performance visibility.

What other advice do I have?

We're an Aruba partner. We provide this solution to our customers. We tend to work with and offer the latest version on the market. The version we have now in our offices is more than five years old at this point. It was the latest version when we installed it. Would advise anyone considering using… more »

What is most valuable?

The central management of multiple devices is the solution's most valuable aspect. The solution is very user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

The solution, as it is, is perfect for us right now. There isn't any aspect that needs to be simplified.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is fairly reasonable. It may be a bit expensive for some companies, but for us, it's worth every penny.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use a different solution, but it was medium-class and not really comparable to Aruba. It might have been D-Link or something similar.

What other advice do I have?

We work off the latest version of the solution. I'm just using the system now for the management of devices. I haven't been adding devices recently, but in the last couple of years of using it, I… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were considering Cisco at the time, but Aruba had a better price point. Our supplier actually suggested Aruba as an optimal solution for us.
