We performed a comparison between Aruba Wireless and Mist AI and Cloud based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Wireless LAN solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"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."
"The simplicity is great."
"The solution is pretty generic and easy to use."
"The most useful feature of Juniper Wireless AP is the reporting Marvis."
"The coverage, concurrent user life, and visualization are the most valuable features of these solutions."
"The most valuable feature of Aruba Wireless is the controller. It is easy to use."
"The most valuable features of Aruba Wireless are the seamless feature and the concurrent user."
"The solution provides a clear path to instant wireless."
"Setup is straightforward."
"Price is one of the most important factors. We have a solution that's reasonably cost-effective when balanced against all the areas we need to cover."
"What I like best about Aruba Wireless is that it doesn't need a controller. The product also has a GUI that's easy to navigate."
"The solution is well designed so you can easily integrate it in an infrastructure network."
"Has an extremely good feature set."
"AI is the most valuable feature."
"Juniper Wireless AP can improve by continually improving its reporting and integration with other systems."
"If you want to do more specific stuff, it's a bit limited."
"Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) could improve if the MIST platform had a built-in master key. This would be an advantage."
"I need a bit more time with it before criticizing the features."
"The certification for licensing could be better."
"The solution is now taking eight to 12 months to deliver the product."
"The reliability could be improved."
"We needed the help of network consultants to complete the setup for us."
"They should have more support for implementing Aruba Wireless in Smart Cities and outdoor applications."
"We need security features to recognize the traffic source and to apply Zero Trust security."
"We're using the Aruba Sensor, but sometimes the sensor isn't talking to AirWave or the AP. If something happens, we need to receive an email directly from the sensor, but the controller doesn't know. If there's something like the high channel utilization from the sensor we send to the controller, the controller can change the channel because they're all in the same environment."
"Aruba Wireless could improve the interface, it does not have a smart web interface. Other solutions have smart web interfaces, such as Cisco Meraki."
"There could be more integration."
"The inter-functionality with other vendors was a negative for us."
