"The coverage Aruba provides across the physical area is much better. Most probably because of the new technology, the 4x4 antenna, and everything around it. It's just a much better, easier to use, and easier to manage product."
"This product offers cloud-based configuration, so you can set it up from anywhere."
"The cloud manageability feature is valuable."
"Its flexibility, ease of management via the portal, and the variety of access points are the most valuable features."
"The solution is easy to use."
"It is very stable, very resilient, and very robust."
"Great architecturally based dashboard and the solution is accessible from anywhere."
"It is easy to manage and configure. The dashboard of Meraki is easy to use."
"The big draw is the ease of installation. It's easy to manage, and it's easy to implement."
"If there's a way to get a floor map of our office space so we can place the access points on a map to be able to see what's what, where everything is going, where the most traffic is being connected, that would be a nice feature."
"When we are using SSID roaming, it is not flexible in terms of which AP it connects to."
"If you lose connectivity with the controller, your Wi-Fi network is immediately impacted."
"Its price should be reduced."
"The licensing isn't very customer-centric. They may have improved it, but previously, if you forgot to pay on a certain day, your service would be shut off."
"There could be more functionality."
"Concern when there are a number of concurrent users."
"Quality of technical support varies."
"I would like to see more cybersecurity. I would like the ability to go in and enhance security. Because WPA2 is becoming obsolete, many devices are now WPA3, but the challenge is that a lot of devices are not yet there. I would like to be able to go in and do monitoring, similar to ASPM. ASPM has the ability to monitor who's joining and who's active. It supports two-step monitoring. The stability of Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN can also be improved."
