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

We've used Huawei, which is also good. We're integrators, so we implement either solution according to the project requirements of our clients. I do find Aruba more stable and easier to use than Huawei, however.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd recommend the solution; I find it more stable than other options. I'd rate it nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

I find this solution easy to configure and use.

What needs improvement?

The coverage should be better. There should be an option for a wireless bridge that can be used to join two access points. Technical support takes too long and is something that should be improved. It would be helpful if Cisco Wireless supported the Internet of Things (IoT).

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

We are also using Huawei wireless.

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of this product depends on the environment and the requirements, as every place has its own circumstances. Generally, I recommend this product. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
