What is most valuable?

We did a deployment where we were running about a 10Gb video endpoint sources, so we were utilizing a much larger amount of backplane bandwidth than we were used to using… more»

How has it helped my organization?

If our company was going to buy a new office and deploy a bunch of stuff, it would be one of these switches that I would purchase, especially because you're able to stack… more»

What needs improvement?

Since this is my first time working with this specific switch interface, the interface was pretty intuitive. The only area I found a little bit confusing was how they… more»

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

It was an initial, single purchase for us. For the three switches, because I had the 96X and the two 48 port single gigabyte ones, then all the cards, etc. The total price… more»

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

The performance, expandability, and price point comparison, along with the redesigned part of the spec, made a convincing case to switch to the 96X. There was also AP over… more»

What other advice do I have?

What do you think of Ubiquiti UniFi Switches?

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is to support our users by providing internet services and university academic system software resources.

What is most valuable?

I like the control one has with this solution; you manage everything from one central point. Everything including the devices and the switches. So the centralized management is one thing that I really like about Ubiquiti.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Ubiquiti UniFi Switches for three months now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I've been using the solution for three months only, so I can't say if it is stable or not. But I've had no glitches or bugs so far. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

What is most valuable?

We like the framework of fabric virtual switching. It is the only virtual link between two switches, particularly with the co-switching environment. The link helps us to avoid issues with the findings tool.

What needs improvement?

I think that the environment for our clients should be simplified. Technical support response time could be better.

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

Previously we used Ubiquiti, it is cheaper but we went with Aruba and Cisco. Cisco is stable and we don't have to worry about it not working. Aruba is still new to us, so we don't know it well, or all of the benefits yet.

What other advice do I have?

We are system integrators and we propose solutions for our clients. From what I read in Gartner Magic Quadrant, Aruba Switches rank highly. It's a good solution. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
