Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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.""Everything can be seen from the dashboard.""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.""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.""The technical support for this solution is good.""What our customers like the most is that this device is so rugged. It has very good performance and throughput. Its console is very easy to use and has many features, which makes it different from its competitors. Cloud IQ has all the features built into the console, whereas other solutions require you to integrate multiple solutions with their consoles. You don't need to add anything extra with Cloud IQ. With this single solution, you can do almost everything.""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.""Its configuration and deployment are the most valuable."

"The Artificial Intelligence on offer is very useful.""The installation process is nice and easy.""The installation process is very easy."

Cons
"ExtremeCloud should invest in an SD-WAN solution or integration with SD-WAN.""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.""The licensing model could be improved.""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.""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.""The managing of switches within this solution could be improved.""Having a wizard for customers who are just starting might be helpful.""We'd like to have a cloud dashboard from which we can see all devices."

"The support on offer to other vendors switching - like Aruba or Ruckus - could be improved.""The solution could offer more integration with other products.""We would prefer it if the solution could be less expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I did a multi-year license. It was a three-year license. It compares well with others in terms of the price. It is about a hundred dollars per year on a three-year scale."
  • "It is not the cheapest product but I think that the price is reasonable because you get a lot of support of it's needed."
  • "It is costly as compared to Meraki, Aruba, Juniper, and Cisco. Cloud IQ is an enterprise solution, whereas Meraki is specifically a single solution."
  • "The price was okay."
  • "It is easy for customers to use this product because they are able to interchange the license depending on their usage rather than having to buy individual licenses for each asset."
  • "This solution offers annual licensing that is middle of the range in terms of cost."
  • "Extreme is twice as cheap compared to Cisco due to the currency exchange. Normally, I think Cisco would be a little bit more expensive, but there wouldn't be that much of a difference."
