What is most valuable?

The granularity of standardization and technical controls would be the big one in terms of valuable features. You can control everything, every technology within the wireless arena. It contrasts with Meraki which is very much macro-driven so you don't have the visibility of the complete engine. From an engineering and consultant perspective, I want full control. The Cisco WLC solution supplies… more»

What needs improvement?

With the WMM there are a few bits and pieces missing that some of the other vendors have. Cisco has a bad habit, although they'd probably see it as a good habit, of not applying extras. I want more managing features. Cisco would love you to go and buy Cisco Prime, which is very expensive, especially if you want to get reports active for the SME market.

What other advice do I have?

What needs improvement?

In terms of what could be improved in the product, I would have to say security features are lacking. I'm not saying it's easy to hack or not very secure, but when I compare it to the Cisco Meraki solution I use at work, there are a lot of features missing. For example, you can't use antivirus… more»

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

The product is a very good price with no setup or ongoing costs. If you compare it to Cisco Meraki, it's one-fifth of the price. But you have to remember that Cisco is an enterprise solution and it seems Ubiquiti Wireless is more for private or small business use but doesn't suit large enterprise… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this product an 8 out of 10.
