"The most useful feature of Juniper Wireless AP is the reporting Marvis."
"The simplicity is great."
"The solution is pretty generic and easy to use."
"The most important feature is flexibility."
"Meraki WLAN is easy to deploy, includes a cloud controller, and updates continuously. It also offers high visibility."
"The solution is very easy to use."
"It is easy to set up. You can do everything on the GUI. You don't need to trace cables. You don't need to connect to the switch. Everything is there, right in front of you."
"I like the status page Cisco added that shows you the health of the wireless connection."
"The monitoring device enables you to see the network health."
"The automatic VMware update is very useful because you don't have to worry about outages and planning for VMware updates. It is very advantageous from a management point of view. The ability to restrict and review the clients connected to each of our segments. Additionally, the solution is easy to use."
"It's a stable product."
"For me, the ease of setup and the rugged nature in harsh environments are most valuable. So, durability and ease of use have been its best features."
"Fortinet FortiWLM is good for tracking assets, monitoring, and overall management."
"Although there are a few steps, the initial setup is pretty straightforward."
"The most valuable features are central management and the many other features available."
"At the moment, particularly with the COVID-19 situation, the most valuable feature is probably the IPsec VPN, which is easy to implement with Fortinet."
"The most valuable features are the roaming profile, the mesh, and the performance."
"The most valuable features of this solution are its speed, reliability, and integration with the firewall."
"If you want to do more specific stuff, it's a bit limited."
"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."
"They're great. If there's anything that they need to change, it is just simplifying the site to which you go to make changes on the admin side."
"The solution should be more secure."
"The signal coverage radius could be extended."
"The annual maintenance is something that needs to be changed."
"Overall the solution needs to have more time to mature."
"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."
"The licensing could be a bit better."
"When it comes to switching, Meraki lacks categories of features."
"Cost is something that could be improved, but you have to pay for what you get."
"In the next release, they could improve by adding a controller-less server, or architecture that is provided in other solutions, such as Aruba. This would be a great benefit for customers."
"The roaming of Fortinet FortiWLM could improve when comparing it to other solutions. We are missing some of the functionality in the controller. Additionally, they should offer more logs instead of using FortiAnalyzer because all the users will not be using the same thing."
"Areas for improvement would be the compatibility with Apple products and cross-platform integration."
"They need to do more with their marketing. That's what's wrong with them. Nobody knows they do all this other stuff. I love the product. For an enterprise-level system, you never have to explain why you're recommending Fortinet, whereas you might have to do that if you want to use the Ubiquiti Professional or the new Netgear line, but you don't have to explain Fortinet. It has been remarkable to work with."
"The interface could certainly do with some improvement. We have other customers with WiFi networks, and they always use Ubiquiti. With Ubiquiti, it's a much better user interface, and it is much easier to configure."
"When using the FortiGate as the wireless controller, you cannot have automatic user registration, which is something that they should offer."
