We do not have a leased license with Aruba Wireless. We bought ours earlier. We don't use the cloud solution of Aruba. We bought the license for life. We don't rent the license or pay a monthly fee.

It's not expensive. That is the reason we switched to Aruba.

Pricing is competitive. Licensing is needed to maintain access to the latest firmware, which wasn't made clear originally when we started with Arbua (or things changed, I'm not sure which). I would just say, make sure you budget for it. In addition to the licensing, you do get "support," for what its worth.

Besides paying for the APs, you need to pay a license each year for their use. Therefore, watch out for that and do the best you can to keep costs down.

Licencing can be surprising and needs improvement. Look into all features, what you need versus what you want, and know that nothing comes without some kind of license.

A recent change is that ClearPass licensing is superb. It counts user-based instead of device-based, for BYOD on-boarding.

Trial different solutions and compare pricing to how well they perform, their stability, how easy it is to maintain, etc.

Price is fairly expensive, however it is worth it. If the “master” fails, another AP can take over the role.

We will be buying the ClearPass solution, which will be pricey. However, in the trial version, it has even more tools to manage a busy network.

Pricing is very competitive.

Pricing support has always been cost-effective. Licensing is a one time purchase (only the cloud license has to be renewed, which is worth trying out).

Get multiple bids/quotes, and talk to the representatives about the limitations of the product; pretty standard.
