Fast, with good availability and good management

What is our primary use case?

Our customer's primary use case is internet connectivity.

Pros and Cons

  • "If you compare wired versus wireless, it's convenient. You don't need to have one place for connectivity. You can move around and it's easier. Sometimes it's a hassle to work with wires, which is why wireless is so convenient."
  • "There seems to be different versions of standards used in the wireless access points. In the future, it would be helpful if the solution could come up with some kind of universal standard for all devices and all access points."

What other advice do I have?

We're a partner. We work with different deployment options depending on the customer. If the company is isolated to one or two access points in a place, we probably will use the cloud. If it is a big organization, where internal traffic is heavy, we might use on-premise controllers. Sometimes, maybe a hybrid is necessary. It depends on the customer. I would advise other companies to plan the solution's implementation properly and do some background study because there are certain access points banned from certain countries. They need to know which product you can use. Then they need to have an…

    Good control of access points but the configuration could be improved

    What is our primary use case?

    Our primary use case depends on the situation. Sometimes we deploy it on a service level and we have data centers that we provide this kind of service to. But mostly we do it through partners, system integrators or resellers. The kinds of businesses using the solution would be hotels, large conference venues, banquet halls, and things like that. We also work with a school. It's all about management. 

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature would be the center life management, by which I mean being able to control the access points by groups. 

    What needs improvement?

    The configuration could be improved. 

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We've been using the product for a couple of years.

    Has reasonable costs but the user experience needs improvement

    What is most valuable?

    The cost is the most valuable aspect of this solution. 

    What needs improvement?

    The user experience should be improved. It's not user-friendly. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The stability and scalability are good. We have around 500 users. We aren't sure if we are going to increase usage. 

    How are customer service and technical support?

    We haven't needed to contact technical support. 

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

    The best solution is Meraki. 

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is complicated. We did the setup ourselves. 

    What other advice do I have?

    I would rate it a six out of ten. Not a ten because I don't really like this solution. It doesn't have a good user interface.  I…
