Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"HPE Wireless is easy to use. Integration is not an issue. It is easy to integrate HPE Wireless with any operating system and other brands of switches.""Setting up the solution initially is very easy.""The solution is easy to use.""The most valuable features of this solution are it supports the newest virus technology, which helps with bandwidth, and is very stable.""The main benefit of this product is the lifetime warranty, up to 99 years. For example, if your switch card fails after 10 years, and the hardware fails, it will be replaced with the very same switch or the equivalent model available at the time.""The support has been responsive and helpful.""The most important is that the solution is stable.""It's easy to use."

"The scalability of Ubiquiti Wireless is very good. We can add and transfer access points, it is highly scalable.""Easy to use and flexible.""Ubiquiti is easier to install than Mikrotik.""Having dual-band is important. Having compatibility with very old equipment on certain frequencies, for example on 2.4 and 5.8.""The solution is easy to use and flexible.""Overall, it's a straightforward solution.""The setup is easy and user friendly.""I like the simplicity, the ease of use."

Cons
"Technical support could be improved. They could respond a bit faster.""The installation is easy. However, my implementation is complicated and you would need special training to complete it.""Scalability is an aspect of this product that should be improved.""Sometimes it can be difficult to find the right sizing.""It's very old-fashioned, which is why we have made the decision to replace it.""I would say that the integration with other vendors in areas such as management or the visibility of other vendors in the management tools could be improved.""It should be a faster device.""The scalability and the support could be better."

"I would like local support from the parent company.""One of the Ubiquiti access points broke down, and it can't be used. It's still down now, so overall Ubiquiti hasn't been a good experience for me.""Difficult to see error logs and locate the problem.""The external devices, the outdoor devices, are not so rugged. For example, for the weather that we have here in Florida, it doesn't hold up well even though it is supposed to be designed for outdoor use.""Tech support is mostly remote and could be better.""The solution needs to improve its features and offer more to the customer.""Performance could be improved in the solution because when I compare it with Ruckus and other APs, some of those APs are better performing, so you don't have to deploy too many APs to get the same level of Wi-Fi coverage and stability. It's not about how many clients the solution can handle, but it is more about stability and coverage. Another room for improvement in Ubiquiti Wireless, compared to other brands, is that it doesn't do well when used in an office network. It has a limitation on how reliable the AP of the system is.""The production is not very stable in our experience."
