What are the biggest differences between Ruckus Wireless, Aruba Wireless, and Cisco Wireless?

I have more than ten years of experience at a financial services firm with 10,000+ employees. 

We are currently evaluating Ruckus Wireless, Aruba Wireless, and Cisco Wireless. What are the biggest differences between the three? Which do you recommend?

Thanks! I appreciate the help.

The Antenna system named BEAMFLEX + is the great difference between all other brands. This Patented Technology gives Ruckus the best performance in all scenarios. No doubt Ruckus is superior.

We found that Ruckus has superior Radio Frequency sensitivity than all your other choices. Cisco Meraki has a superior back end, but to us, RF sensitivity is the most important characteristic.

* Cisco will most likely be the most expensive solution. Are they the best, I really do not think so as I feel you are paying extra for the name. Although, their Meraki solution is less expensive and does operate decently and is a cloud-based solution.

* I currently use Aruba Networks. Our system is due for an upgrade which we will be using Aruba Networks again. This time, it will be a cloud-based solution.

* I have not used Ruckus wireless but have heard good things about it in the K-12 education arena. I think they are very comparable to Aruba Networks.

* My best recommendation would be to do a Google search on the differences between the 3 systems. I am certain there are articles written about the pros/cons of each system.
