"In terms of reporting, in terms of all the user reports, it's very rich."
"With Mist, every Wednesday they roll out new features."
"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."
"The solution is pretty generic and easy to use."
"The simplicity is great."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is Marvis, the AI-driven network management system."
"Reasonably priced and great for small to medium size organizations."
"This is the second time I've implemented and installed this solution and I think it is outstanding. The support is excellent and so is the hardware. We don't need much support because nothing really goes wrong."
"Overall, it's a very strong solution."
"We were able to increase capacity very easily."
"The main features of Aruba Wireless in my country is its popularity, long hardware warranty when compared to other solutions, and it integrates well with our network access control solution."
"Aruba Wireless has been straightforward to set up."
"What I like most about Aruba Wireless is its stability, functionality, and performance."
"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."
"The initial setup is not complicated."
"The most valuable feature of TP-Link Auranet EAP is its high performance."
"The pricing is reasonable."

"The solution is expensive."
"Juniper Wireless AP can improve by continually improving its reporting and integration with other systems."
"I need a bit more time with it before criticizing the features."
"Aruba Wireless could improve the dashboard. It is not straightforward or intuitive to use and could be more user-friendly. For IT employees the dashboards are fine but when it comes to the end-user it is difficult. The Mobility Controller dashboard is not meant for non-IT employees."

"There are some issues we occasionally have. However, they are easily remedied."
"Aruba Wireless is a little bit complex to use and operate."
"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."
"Lacks a heat map analysis and a cloud-based wireless controller."
"The pricing could always be better."
"One area for improvement in Aruba Wireless is its dashboard or interface because in some cases, it's not as easy to use as it should be, but overall, it's okay. Pricing for the product is also on the higher side. Another area for improvement in Aruba Wireless is technical support because it's hard to reach when issues arise and the speed of answer could be faster. Other areas for improvement in the product include integration and configuration."
"There should be more remote support for the mobile application."
"The technical support could be improved."
"It's better for smaller organizations. This would not work for enterprises. It is not very scalable."
"TP-Link Auranet EAP is not very efficient, they need to improve it."
"It would be nice if the dashboard was more customizable."
