"The most useful feature of Juniper Wireless AP is the reporting Marvis."
"The solution is pretty generic and easy to use."
"The simplicity is great."
"It's a stable product."
"There are many valuable features of Cisco Meraki, including the switches, stacking, and layer 3 routing."
"The visibility of the site is most useful."
"The most valuable feature is that the solution is friendly to manage."
"I think the IoT integration is the most valuable. I started applying IoT solutions 12 years ago on location-based services. Aruba had implemented this at the time. So I think the integration, particularly into the applications and stuff, is pretty interesting in Meraki."
"The solution is easy to use."
"The solution is stable and reliable."
"What I like best about Meraki is that I can change it from anywhere."
"The most valuable feature of Ubiquiti Wireless is the ease of configuration."
"The setup is quite simple."
"They are reliable in terms of wireless connectivity."
"The ease of the setup is one of its most valuable aspects."
"Ubiquiti is easier to install than Mikrotik."
"I have found the most valuable features to be the ability to use the main centralized administration process and the internet."
"The solution offers us good situational awareness by providing information on user activity, signal strength, and all the data that you need to manage the system and understand issues."
"Having dual-band is important. Having compatibility with very old equipment on certain frequencies, for example on 2.4 and 5.8."
"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."
"If you want to do more specific stuff, it's a bit limited."
"The throughput of the switches for wireless could be improved."
"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."
"We have used technical support for some issues but not many times."
"Currently, only a limited number of clients can connect to these devices."
"Overall the solution needs to have more time to mature."
"When it comes to switching, Meraki lacks categories of features."
"There could be more functionality."
"The licensing isn't very customer-centric. They may have improved it, but previously, if you forgot to pay on a certain day, your service would be shut off."
"The Unifi controller software has a small issue."
"Ubiquiti is also slow to adopt new technologies. We are transitioning to Wi-Fi 6, and there aren't many products. They have mostly Wi-Fi 5 products, but there are only two Wi-Fi 6 products. It's okay for places we have already equipped, but it's a bit hard for new places."
"t does not have traffic shaping or traffic policies in its wireless requirements."
"The technical support is less than stellar."
"The range and maybe the quality of the signal can be improved. I had a feeling that the range wasn't long enough. Unfortunately, beyond a certain range, the signal was too weak. If I'm not mistaken, it must have been something like 100 or more than 100 meters, but I'm not sure. So, one improvement I wish for this equipment is to have a longer range, but that could mainly be due to the model we're using."
"The external devices, the outdoor devices, are not so rugged. For example, for the weather that we have here in Florida, it doesn't hold up well even though it is supposed to be designed for outdoor use."
"It's hard to get stuff delivered on time."
"Ubiquiti could develop a more elaborate firewall solution. Their firewall solutions at the moment are entry-level. Maybe they don't want to bring those products in because many people prefer putting a third-party firewall into a solution like that. We usually do."
