"The product greatly improved our organization in terms of making configuration, deployment, and firmware upgrades easy for multiple automated devices.""The most valuable feature of Juniper Mist Wired Assurance is zero-touch provisioning for query edge switches. You can connect the switch directly to your edge locations and then directly onboard, similar to the Cisco Meraki solutions."

Cons
"I want a management solution to manage and monitor everything from a single dashboard. This is not there with Airwave.""Cost is always a big issue for partners.""We encounter delayed ETAs in the manufacturing of hardware.""Pricing for Aruba Airwave could be cheaper, which is an area for improvement in the solution.""The integration with other platforms like Cisco needs to be improved.""The overall monitoring of this solution could be improved.""I would like to see an integration of services into one system, rather than having multiple systems to do multiple things.""I would like to see is “AAS”. Not only Aruba APs with central, but NAC/ClearPass, AirWave, and everything licensed as a Service."

More Aruba Airwave Cons →

"The platform’s monitoring tool is not up to the mark. It is not proactive enough and lacks some capabilities. Additionally, they should work on providing integration with other vendors.""The configuration aspect of the solutions is relatively new, but I have had positive experiences. However, for more advanced tasks, such as VXLANs on the EX platform, Juniper Mist Wired Assurance may not be the best option due to certain limitations. Nonetheless, it does have a CLI override feature for specialized configurations that cannot be done through the GUI."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Licensing and pricing are extremely straightforward."
  • "Run a 90 day free Proof of Concept (PoC) for each product by implementing and using it fully in your environment. This way you will be educated on its features, functionality, and manageability."
  • "The cost is perfect because the devices have a lifetime warranty, and the licensing is good as well."
  • "This product is not expensive."
  • "AirWave is a very expensive solution. If you implement it in a wide range network, it will cost a lot. There is no option to sell it outside that price segment, which is a problem."
  • "The licensing cost for Aruba Airwave increased from $72 to $210 within a few months. It would be better if the pricing for the solution were cheaper."
  • "It is an expensive solution."
  • "We must buy a new license to connect more devices to scale up the solution."
