More Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) Cons →

"Technical support is an area that needs to be improved.""ExtremeWireless support isn't very good.""The solution should offer better support.""The user interface of ExtremeWireless could be better. It is not user-friendly.""The reports could prove in ExtremeWireless. However, we are in the early stages of use and we might be able to configure them better.""The main area for improvement is the company's local visibility.""The cost is a little high.""In the next release, I would like to see more security features."

More ExtremeWireless Cons →

Most solutions are adopting centralized cloud-based management, but my client base believes cloud solutions are too insecure. You've got a few dozen switches, so it would be nice to have the ability to manage them on a "single pane of glass."""There is some improvement needed for the power supply of the solution.""The solution could improve by having more integration options.""We'd like better support for situations where we need troubleshooting.""They should continue to work on new features."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We pay maybe 1000 SEK per year, per access point."
  • "Juniper Wireless AP's price is a little more expensive than other solutions, but you get what you pay for."
  • More Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The solution is priced well and we currently are only paying for a license for maintenance."
  • "Our access points device is at its end of life. I can buy one more and then I must buy a new device, but if it is a new device it will not support the old virtual appliance. I would need to upgrade our virtual appliance to the next version or build a new virtual appliance with new devices, and it's not good for us. The overall licensing subscription could be better."
  • "The price of the solution overall is expensive. Additionally, the controller and license are expensive. We pay for an annual subscription."
  • "Extreme isn't the most expensive, but it's not a low-cost solution, and because there are no big volumes, you don't receive significant discounts, making the final price higher."
  • "I rate the price of Extreme Wireless a three out of five."
  • "It's not as expensive as some and is scalable to our needs."
  • "We pay approximately $30,000 per year."
  • "ExtremeWireless isn't budget-friendly. The hardware costs around 20,000 Indian rupees. We're still using an older controller, so it doesn't require a license, unlike the newest versions of the ExtremeWireless controller."
  • More ExtremeWireless Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing is very good."
  • "The price is fair."
  • "They are affordable and less expensive than Cisco. Their price was the decider at the time."
  • "All the solutions have a license for the QSFP. Additionally, there is a one-time license fee to increase the interface speed."
  • "We need to pay when we buy the switch. We pay for a license to use the software, but it is not required."
  • "It is a more expensive solution."
  • "HP switches are priced well."
  • "The licensing cost is yearly, and there aren't any additional costs on top of the standard fee."
