Provides network security, is user friendly, stable, and scalable, and has a lifetime warranty

What is our primary use case?

We use it to obtain seamless roaming. So many people want to roam from one room to another room, and at that time, they don't want their video call to disconnect. HPE Wireless WAN helps with this.

Pros and Cons

  • "The main benefit of this product is the lifetime warranty, up to 99 years. For example, if your switch card fails after 10 years, and the hardware fails, it will be replaced with the very same switch or the equivalent model available at the time."
  • "HPE Wireless WAN could provide better access points and better pricing."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution at ten on a scale from one to ten. I would say that quality wise, it is on the higher end of the scale, whereas price wise, it is on the medium end of the scale. If you use a cloud solution and then after two or three years decide that you do not want a cloud solution, it may not be possible to switch to on-premises with solutions like Cisco Meraki. However, it is possible with HPE Wireless WAN.

Good technical support, easy to set up, and stable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for wireless connectivity. We are working in an integrated company in Turkey and lots of projects that we are working on are using this product.

Pros and Cons

  • "We've found the scalability to be good."

What other advice do I have?

We're a partner. We help clients install this product into their environments. Mostly, we use the private cloud in Turkey, however, often hybrid deployments are also used. I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. For the most part, we are quite satisfied with the capabilities and the level of service we are provided.
