Fortinet FortiWLM Stability

Like with any new solution that you put in, with this kind of complexity, it takes a little bit of time to stabilize. Anything that you do to a network takes a little bit of time for you to get to the point where it stabilizes. It's been fairly stable right from the start. It's not like we had any major issues or outages. It continues to get more and more stable as they address the bugs. When I talk about bugs, a lot of people might think, "Well, it's got some bugs in it." But when you look at the details of the number of the products that you're using in the Fabric, it is understandable that they do have to work some of that stuff out. None of the bugs cause any operational issues. Most of the bugs we see are a little inconvenience, where we have to do something in a slightly different way until the fix release. With the next release, it becomes more and more stable. We knew up front, when we did the deployment, that we were going to have to deal with a few more bugs because we purposely went with the new version. We decided we wanted to work at it until we got stable on the new version. Once we get there, we'll probably step back and wait a little bit until the next version comes out. Right now, we're FortiOS 6.03 and 6.2 is going to be coming out, probably sometime next year. We'll probably move to 6.2 six to nine months, or longer, after it's out, depending on what features we want. View full review »

The stability is fine on its own, but we can do high-availability where we have multiple wireless controllers, in case one goes down. View full review »

Stability issues are very infrequent. If an issue is encountered, a temporary solution is quickly found while a permanent fix is developed. View full review »
