What are the biggest differences between Aruba Wireless and ExtremeWireless?



I'm working as the Network Manager at a Healthcare Company with 5K+ employees.

Currently, I'm researching Aruba Wireless and ExtremeWireless and I'd like to understand the main differences between the two of them. Please assist.

It also depends on the integration with your LAN network and Network Access Control. Both have campus and cloud-native solutions. 

One single pane of glass for all your end devices is very advisable. So be sure to integrate your LAN with your WLAN and NAC, and if possible with your firewall gateway and endpoint security.

Aruba Wireless has a very rich feature set and integration possibilities. Extreme has a very high level of automation and easy to deploy virtual services on their SPBM fabric. 

So it all depends on your expectations and business case...

@Evgeny Belenky I only have experience in Aruba and not Extreme. 
We did do an overview of Extreme recently, but don't have that knowledge to accurately share thoughts. 
There were some cool features that Aruba doesn't have such as tech support can modify and share snippets of code on-the-fly, and apply it to your production system for testing.
