Comparison Results: After comparing the Juniper WLC Series and ExtremeCloud IQ, it can be concluded that the Juniper WLC Series has a simpler setup process and good monitoring capabilities. However, it is more expensive, requires a team of engineers for deployment and maintenance, and lacks user-friendliness and compatibility with other products. On the other hand, ExtremeCloud IQ offers an easy and intuitive setup, a unified dashboard for performance visibility, and unique features like data storage and license swapping. It is also more affordable for certain users and has received positive feedback for its customer service and support. Some users have even experienced a return on investment with ExtremeCloud IQ due to cost savings and scalability.
"When we deployed the new IP that is managed wirelessly in the cloud, it fixed the problems. Now, we don't have any more reports, and everything works fine."
"ExtremeCloud offers features that not a lot of other vendors do like their data storage and the ability to swap licenses."
"It's extremely easy to deploy. Even our access points are behind the net, not using real, public IP. We can easily add to the cloud. For deployment, we just need to let the access point take the DSCP from IP and then, even if it's not a requirement, we can see the serial number from the access points and add the serial number to the cloud directly."
"What I like best about ExtremeCloud IQ is its ease of use. Flexibility is another pro of ExtremeCloud IQ. I also find ExtremeCloud IQ feature-rich."
"The technical support for this solution is good."
"The most valuable feature is the centralized management capability."
"ExtremeCloud IQ is integrated with the Ekahau tool so that you can log in to the ExtremeCloud IQ portal, upload the cloud plans, draw all the interiors, and plan the APs with the real-time AP position."
"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."
"It's easy to set up, and I feel it's very secure. I also prefer its reporting feature. The devices are quite good."
"The managing of switches within this solution could be improved."
"An area for improvement in ExtremeCloud IQ is its technical support. Support could be better, especially when you need help concerning ExtremeCloud IQ and WinG."
"The solution's performance needs to be enhanced because of a very high delay."
"I would like to see more security features such as NAC integrated to the solution. This would allow customers to be able to control all other users under one dashboard."
"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 licensing model could be improved."
"We'd like to have a cloud dashboard from which we can see all devices."
"The dashboard and stability need to be improved."
"There could be more information from the controller, and it could be easier to work with the controller lights. It's not easy to bring up the upgrades."
