"With Mist, every Wednesday they roll out new features."
"The solution is pretty generic and easy to use."
"The most useful feature of Juniper Wireless AP is the reporting Marvis."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is Marvis, the AI-driven network management system."
"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 simplicity is great."
"In terms of reporting, in terms of all the user reports, it's very rich."
"The most valuable features are mobility and security."
"It integrates with Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA)."
"The most important thing for me is that all the access points are in one group and use one access code. So, when you move from one area to another, you don't disconnect and reconnect again. The device is also very easy to install and control."
"The product enables mobility and centralized control."
"The solution is easy to use and its stable."
"Stable and scalable with good technical support."
"I'm very satisfied with Cisco's technical support."
"The most valuable features of Cisco Wireless are security and the ability to manage everything easily. Other solutions, such as Aruba are not as simple."
"Ubiquiti WLAN is stable."
"The solution is not complex to deploy."
"The solution has a lot of great features."
"The solution works well and in the short time I have used it, I've enjoyed its capabilities."
"It is similar to the switches, where it is one of those things where it just works. They are very reliable."
"The solution is very easy to install."
"Ubiquiti WLAN's best feature is the free controller system software."
"For me, the ease of configuration is a valuable feature."
"I need a bit more time with it before criticizing the features."
"Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) could improve if the MIST platform had a built-in master key. This would be an advantage."
"The solution is expensive."
"The price could be better."
"The product should include adaptive Wi-Fi to show a more accurate location."
"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."
"There are some features I would like to have in Cisco Wireless, such as Telemetry and other IoT. However, they are available in the new version of the solution."
"The main concern is the length and overlapping. We have to put on four to six access points on the same floor, and we face the issue of overlapping areas. If Cisco can extend the range of their indoor APs, we would need to install just one or two access points, and it would eliminate the problem of the overlapping area."
"The media stream and Mojo settings are not sufficiently supported."
"The pricing could be reduced."
"It was expensive. Considering the challenges faced in third-world countries like Pakistan or India, cheaper solutions are preferred."
"The solution doesn't have much coverage area."
"The installation is very tiring and painful, the process could be easier."
"Cisco Wireless is expensive."
"When they release new products, you should know if there backward compatibility, or do you have to replace the entire forklift, It is useful to understand their strategy and where they are headed."
"Ubiquiti lacks troubleshooting tools. For example, there aren't tools that your clients can use to gather input on the AP itself. There's no visibility in the application layer or reporting. It doesn't have a lot of management features."
"When I started to upgrade, the controller for Unbuntu was really struggling to start up, however, that has since been solved."
"The solution could improve by having a cloud version. A cloud version is the easiest to configure anywhere in the world."
"The product needs to improve the user interface in the migration from old to new versions."
"They could enhance their products by integrating cloud access into each device."
"I have never used cloud solutions. My first approach would be something related to the cloud, and backups on the cloud, and maybe an easier way to connect to it because I have an on-premises environment."
"There seems to be a drop in service. It's definitely a reliability or stability issue we face."
