What is most valuable?

Being a cloud solution has been great. Also, the reliability and functionality. For example, we had testing going on a year ago, in the spring. And we'd gotten a handful… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We used to have Help Desk tickets every day on our old wireless network. And since we've switched to Mojo, we've had zero. We've had no Help Desk tickets. Our old WiFi… more»

What needs improvement?

We're working with engineers on a new feature set that we would like. I'm not sure what I can say about it in public. It's just that nobody else has this. There's nothing… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Put it this way. Of every solution we looked at, every wireless solution, Mojo was a minimum of six figures cheaper. Minimum. Most of them were double, which again is… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

The reason we switched is because our old solution was horrible. It didn't work. The product didn't work. All the tickets that we were having just caused more issues and… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you go with Mojo, you're not going to be sorry. When it comes down to it, it's the best solution. Period. And how their model runs, and the support, I couldn't say a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated a lot of them. We put in a RFP and then weighted the different products: Cisco, Ruckus, Aerohive, Aruba, and Mojo. They were the five that competed against… more»

What is most valuable?

It delivers constantly, there is no break in the internet using these devices. It also automatically gets connected when the internet comes back. Failure is very low.

How has it helped my organization?

The benefit is the constant delivery of internet bandwidth. Everybody is getting internet access properly. When 40 - 50 people are sitting in a small area it is capable of delivering internet to them… more»

What needs improvement?

What I would like to have with these kinds of devices is the most enhanced security. For example, if I could apply security from wireless devices, that would be great. I would also like more enhanced… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I wanted experience using more products. We were already using another product but I thought, "Okay, let's try Aruba this time and see what the feedback is like." I thought Aruba would give me better… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend Aruba devices. I rate Aruba Wireless at nine out of 10 because of the performance and stability of the product. It's not a 10 because it needs enhanced security and a more… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were looking at different products for our new premises. Aruba was known to me so I compared Aruba with Ruckus.

What is most valuable?

* The ability to disable RRM or set hybrid RRM. This provides a more granular design of RF in the environment. * CLI controller/RF debugging.

How has it helped my organization?

Compared to other solutions, captive guest network is one of the best isolation and tunneling. All other features of RF are average.

What needs improvement?

* RRM * ATF * Ortho-Polarization * AP concurrent client processing

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Expensive.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Switched to Cisco because of upper-level decision.

What other advice do I have?

I’ve been working with Cisco Wireless since 2008. Although CPI and controllers have come a long way, the AP is the limiting factor. There are a lot of assumptions in the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Aruba, Aerohive, Ruckus, UBNT, Mikrotik.

What is most valuable?

As a consumer of TP Link, they don't have any boosting or unique features. All features are common features for any business solutions, its benefit is that it is cost effective.

What needs improvement?

The quality of the hardware needs to be improved.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have tried other products but they are too expensive, and not in our budget. The only option for us is TP Link.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

It has all the common solutions that all other solutions provide. But it is very effective, I was planning to go for Ruckus, but its cost is 60% less than Ruckus. In our region, for Ruckus I have to pay $15,000 to have 25 access points. For TP Link I just need $5,000. So, you can see the level of… more»
