"The simplicity is great."
"The most useful feature of Juniper Wireless AP is the reporting Marvis."
"The solution is pretty generic and easy to use."
"Support is fantastic. They are helpful and responsive."
"It integrates with Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA)."
"The customer always feels confident with the solution because of its reliability."
"It is tough, has a nice speed, and is quite reliable."
"I've found it to be quite secure."
"The installation process is very easy."
"The integration is great."
"The product offers educational licenses that are priced very reasonably."
"The support organization behind this product is extremely professional."
"What's most valuable for me in ExtremeCloud IQ is easy management. It also has centralized administration, so you don't have to go to the customer site to program it. It can be programmed remotely."
"ExtremeCloud offers features that not a lot of other vendors do like their data storage and the ability to swap licenses."
"The most valuable feature is the centralized management capability."
"Everything can be seen from the dashboard."
"The dashboards are great and the user interface is quite intuitive."
"The tech who handles Extreme IQ tells me it's easy to use and learn. He felt like it was pretty intuitive. It comes with solid training materials. He also has talked about the security features that give you as much or as little control as you want."
"I like ExtremeCloud IQ's unified single-pane-of-glass dashboard. It offers a lot of visibility of performance, and it's great for troubleshooting. You don't have to go to 55 different places. You can get the information you need with just a few clicks."
"I need a bit more time with it before criticizing the features."
"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."
"An expensive solution that small companies cannot afford."
"Cisco is costlier relative to other solutions."
"In the next release, they should add a better reporting feature. The reporting will tell you if you have a problem. That will make the diagnostics easier."
"I wouldn't mind if Cisco allowed their premiere devices to be able to have that cloud-based support as well, or cloud-based management."
"The solution is stable but it could be improved. However, this could be because there are not enough APs."
"Requires a firewall body to improve security."
"The technical support could be better. They aren't as helpful as they need to be when we run into issues."
"We've recently had hardware issues which have caused us some problems."
"Its price could be lower. It is a simplified solution, but it has price challenges. It is costly as compared to other solutions. It has almost everything. The only thing is that MAC is not possible on the cloud, and it has to be on-premises."
"A room for improvement in ExtremeCloud IQ is roaming. My team is facing roaming issues with the solution, particularly when using VoIP over WiFi. For example, VoIP sometimes breaks when you walk around the customer site. In terms of what I'd like to see in the next release of the solution, right now, the inventory for ExtremeCloud IQ is awful. There's no stock, and you must wait a year and a half for new stocks. It's awful."
"The certification costs from suppliers are getting out of control, and it's not just Extreme. We have the same problem with Cisco and Huawei."
"We'd like to have a cloud dashboard from which we can see all devices."
"The dashboard and stability need to be improved."
"The managing of switches within this solution could be improved."
"I know a school district, a big school district of mine, ripped out Extreme due to inefficiencies. It was the guest network that can be a struggle. They tried to differentiate between their primary network, and then offer a secondary."
"Pricing could be improved. It could be lower."
