"The simplicity is great."
"It is very handy to have a support number to call."
"The most important feature is flexibility."
"The solution is fast."
"If you're trying to identify one of the switches or pinpoint a computer or pinpoint something, you could find it just like that and change the IP address. It's easiest to do it that way."
"The most valuable thing to me is the stability of the product."
"The monitoring device enables you to see the network health."
"You can scale the solution easily."
"It is a scalable solution."
"AI is the most valuable feature."
"There are several valuable features. One of them is Cibas, and another one is Marvis."
"Mist AI and Cloud is the best solution I have seen in the industry, especially from the artificial intelligence perspective, as it helps businesses."
"Multi PSK (Pre-shared Key) is a very good feature in the solution...Stability-wise, I rate the solution a ten out of ten."
"Has an extremely good feature set."
"The Marvis feature of Mist AI, an artificial intelligence tool, is very useful."
"I have a very good experience with the solution. Scalability-wise, I rate the solution a ten out of ten."
"The most useful aspect of Mist AI and Cloud is automation capabilities."
"Juniper Wireless AP can improve by continually improving its reporting and integration with other systems."
"Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) could improve if the MIST platform had a built-in master key. This would be an advantage."
"The product should include adaptive Wi-Fi to show a more accurate location."
"I need a bit more time with it before criticizing the features."
"The solution is expensive."
"The price could be better."
"If you want to do more specific stuff, it's a bit limited."
"The initial setup of the solution can be improved and made easier."
"Documentation could be improved, but everything else has been spot-on."
"They could also add some more controls for guest access. For example, when you have a captive portal, it would be nice to limit the amount of time users can stay connected per day. Right now, you can only configure the splash frequency. And you can set the connection for one hour, but you have to use the billing feature."
"We'd like to have better mapping to showcase low-coverage areas."
"The initial setup could be made easier."
"We're are not fully utilizing the features of Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN to know a more in-depth analysis of what areas need to be improved. However, the security could improve. It would be a benefit to be able to lock out particular clients that are trying to connect from outside the building."
"Recently I have seen that the Meraki access point, maybe due to congestion, just kicks off my customers, mostly when they are in Zoom meetings or Teams meetings and they have to reconnect."
"The only concern is when the license has expired and it will no longer function, the entire network goes down, without any notification, or warning."
"There could be more integration."
"The inter-functionality with other vendors was a negative for us."
"Juniper should integrate all their dashboards instead of having separate dashboards...Since it lacks the integration of dashboards, Juniper needs to improve it."
"It would be beneficial to have support for the Chinese language."
"The solution doesn't provide mail notifications currently."
"Mist AI and Cloud should be marketed more and focus on making partners in the industry."
"Currently, the solution lacks the ability to configure with other solutions from other vendors."
"Sometimes it takes a lot of time for the access point to connect with the cloud."
