"The artificial intelligence feature is very good."
"The simplicity is great."
"The solution is stable."
"The AI capabilities of Mist Wireless are superior to other OEMs."
"The most useful feature of Juniper Wireless AP is the reporting Marvis."
"The most valuable feature of Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) is the ability to troubleshoot ports on the network. Additionally, when there is an update on the APs they are able to reboot quickly reducing downtime. Other solutions have a longer downtime when updates are done."
"It provides private network access, helping us protect our company’s devices."
"You can easily monitor, manage, and cover all your IT equipment."
"The solution is very stable."
"It offers an easy initial setup."
"The portal has been very helpful for us."
"For my organization, the most critical feature of Aruba Wireless is guest management."
"Aruba is easier than Juniper."
"Setup is straightforward."
"The most valuable feature of Aruba Wireless is the controller. It is easy to use."
"The user interface is great."
"I think it's a good technology. I like that it transparently connects with LDAP. The technology has a lot of capacity for WiFi six. It provides notifications, and there are many ways to connect with fiber. There is an electrical tool, and you can put an SFP transceiver. There are also many ways to implement antennas."
"We can use an access point to broadcast multiple SSIDs, assign dynamic VLANs, and configure dynamic access control lists (ACLs)."
"The most valuable features of Huawei Wireless are WiFi coverage and ease of use."
"The best feature of Huawei Wireless is the quick and fast setup."
"It provides high-speed network connections."
"It is easy to set up."
"All of the features are valuable in Huawei Wireless."
"Huawei Wireless has controllers inside the switches."
"Juniper Wireless AP can improve by continually improving its reporting and integration with other systems."
"They should include SD-WAN features to it."
"I need a bit more time with it before criticizing the features."
"The pricing is very high in the Indian market."
"The pricing should be made cheaper."
"There is room for improvement in terms of support and installation."
"The product should include adaptive Wi-Fi to show a more accurate location."
"The price could be better."
"The pricing could always be better."
"Making the setup more simple is an area for improvement in Aruba Wireless. Security-wise, this solution also needs work."
"The bad things about the product are the price, the information about the product, and the time it takes to deliver the product."
"An area for improvement in Aruba Wireless is creating a DMZ. Without Aruba ClearPass, you need to allow guess access directly via the internet, which means you need to implement the security in between, so this is what I'd like Aruba to improve in the product."
"Aruba Wireless has room to improve the connection from one AP to another."
"There has been a recent decrease in the level of support."
"They should have more support for implementing Aruba Wireless in Smart Cities and outdoor applications."
"I would like to see the management improve."
"The speed could be a bit better."
"While I am fine with the current licensing price, I would appreciate it to be more cost-effective."
"There could be a console port for demonstration or configuration purposes."
"Huawei Wireless can improve the signal, sometimes it becomes weak."
"Huawei Wireless is not scalable. We have had a problem with the solution because it cannot integrate with other servers as the other competitors can."
"The ongoing support and ongoing follow-up on customers is an area where the solution lacks."
"The solution could be easier to use."
"The demo program is an area for improvement in Huawei Wireless as it's hard to use. As a partner, you can use the solution for free, for thirty days, for example. On paper, everything looks fine, but you have to get permission and explain why you want to download the software, even if it's just for demo purposes. I don't get why I have to do this as a partner and still give an explanation that this would be for a demo setup. Downloading the solution isn't a click-and-install process that should go smoothly and efficiently. You have to get a lot of approvals and explain a lot, and in the end, you find out that you received the approval for one piece of software. It looks like you need additional software to use the software. My company asked for approval and received the approval three days later, but you need to install another software to use some of the features. In the past, most features were separate. Because Huawei wants a single pane of glass where all features should work with the Huawei equipment, Huawei decided to combine everything into the iMaster NCE Campus, which incorporates every other cloud solution. However, you still have to ask for approval for every piece of software, and without clear information on the features, the type of software, and the software files required, it's not so good from my point of view."
Juniper Wireless Access Points work in conjunction with Juniper Mist Cloud Services and Mist AI to deliver premier wireless access capabilities. The Juniper Mist Edge extends microservices to the campus to bring agility and scale while enabling new applications at the edge.
