Great performance, easy to set up and simple to configure

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for its performance, compatibility, and general capabilities. We do a lot of schools, colleges, large civic centers, large arenas, etc. That kind of stuff. We know how to deploy this so that the clients get great client connectivity.

Pros and Cons

  • "The product has some very awesome patents on their radios and their antennas and antenna patterns and how their signaling works. That's why nobody can touch them. If they go head to head with anybody."
  • "The cost could be slightly improved. It's not on the low end, and it's not in the high end. It's in that middle area, which can be a deciding factor between someone going with this solution versus another one."

What other advice do I have?

We're a reseller as well as a customer. We're running the latest software. We deploy through a controller and we use 802.1X. There're multiple ways to deploy to customers. There's a cloud controller, for example. We typically do a virtual controller on their systems. If a company is new to Ruckus, it's best to work with a partner. You need somebody that knows what they're doing, and knows what questions to ask so that you're getting the right information. When I go to do an implementation, I've got a list of 50 different questions. I'll ask somebody, what about this? What about this? What…

Easy way to update devices from anywhere in the world

What is our primary use case?

It is a multi-building campus. This way, when we are in-between buildings, we have them meshed together. Then, we can stay on the same WiFi throughout all three buildings. It is in a church, which I have one in my house. Then, we have a church that I go to, where we have three in one building, two in another building, and five in the third building.

Pros and Cons

  • "The meshing capabilities are the most valuable feature. When I am going in-between buildings, my phone doesn't have to pick up different WiFi. They are all the same. Even in-between the buildings, I stay connected."
  • "There is always room for improvement."

What other advice do I have?

I am very happy. We have made other purchases with NETGEAR products since the initial purchase. They are the way to go with their customer support as well as their easy equipment installation. We built a system, which is way above where it needs to be right now. So, it will be a long time before we have to increase it. My biggest lesson is to use the NETGEAR products because it was so easy. I would rate it as a 10 out of 10, but there is always room for improvement.

A complete wireless solution that is competitively priced, but the technology needs to catch up with bigger vendors

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and I am a wireless engineer. D-Link Wireless is one of the products that we implement for our clients. The primary use case is access points in small business networks.

Pros and Cons

  • "D-Link is a good product that is quite affordable and I recommend it."
  • "D-Link has some catching up to do in terms of advancing and improving its technology."

What other advice do I have?

D-Link is a good product that is quite affordable and I recommend it. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Good support, easy to manage, and excels in the cloud environment

What is our primary use case?

We are a distributor for various networking products and ExtremeWireless is one of the solutions that we have experience with. We do between 2,000 and 3,000 projects a year for industries such as hospitality, entertainment, and education.

Pros and Cons

  • "The technical support from Extreme Networks is perfect."
  • "The ability to integrate with network devices from other vendors would be helpful."

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a good product and one that I recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Easy to install, has good performance, and solved our problem of lost data packets

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for our wireless network. All of our wireless devices are on the Aruba network.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that it provides a redundant wireless connection for a client."
  • "This solution would be improved if they supplied free software controllers."

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution that is easy to install and performs well. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
