We're very happy with what we are getting out of the solution in general. The features are good. They're comparable to other brands such as Cisco and HP.

We have not had any downtime with it. It has been a solid performer that way.

The cost and versatility are the solution's most valuable features. You can do anything with them if you know how to. The solution has a whole portfolio of routing features available.

They are very good at providing the bandwidth for multi-tenants and multi-dwelling units. We're managing WiFi hotspots for hundreds of locations, and the speed and performance are quite there. They also have very cheap 10G products that come with really good and flexible software. They are way cheaper than the top brands, and they're able to deliver the same performance and capabilities.

The solution's website isn't that good. When I go to it, I can't find what I'm looking for. However, if I go to a third party's website, I can easily find the information.

The initial setup can be a bit difficult. The configuration can take a lot of time.

They could improve their product if they set, for instance, a controller for wireless LAN. That would allow them to really have something more than an access point.

I would like to see a cluster feature added, where multiple devices can be configured and managed as one. One is in a standby state while the other is active, and if one fails then the other takes over.

They lack the extended warranty for the equipment. They only provide a warranty for one year as compared to the other vendors who offer a warranty for three years, five years, and lifetime, etc.

The solution needs to improve its security firewalls and mirror that of, for example, Sophos, or FortiGate.

The user interface allows you to do a lot of things, but it is not user-friendly.
