We performed a comparison between NETGEAR Insight Access Points and Omada Access Points based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Wireless LAN solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"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 most valuable feature of the solution is Marvis, the AI-driven network management system."
"In terms of reporting, in terms of all the user reports, it's very rich."
"The simplicity is great."
"With Mist, every Wednesday they roll out new features."
"You can easily monitor, manage, and cover all your IT equipment."
"The solution is stable."
"The most useful feature of Juniper Wireless AP is the reporting Marvis."
"I'm able to do a lot of things, because the GUI is designed very well. I'm able to remotely make certain changes via my phone and apply them right away. It makes life easier when it comes to managing the equipment. The Insight management solution phone app is very good. It enables me to do what I want to do."
"The metrics demonstrate that NETGEAR really does a good job of balancing the load between the various access points on the networks and this results in an elimination of downtime."
"Our company sometimes uses the solution's technical support, and we have seen that they sort out our general problems quickly."
"The initial setup of NETGEAR Insight Access Points was straightforward."
"I am all about simplicity. With the Insight management solution, I don’t need an additional cloud controller, appliance, network manager, or PC/server to configure and manage my access points. You have to look at cost, and everything has a cost. There is a cost to using Insight. But if the cost is reasonable, I don't want another layer. The ability to deploy a network and then have that software built-in, without having to go to a third-party, is big. Also, the less pieces that I have to call in on, the better. So, when I'm calling NETGEAR, it's not like I'm using some third-party piece of software to manage their product. It doesn't add that layer of complexity, which is key."
"We use NETGEAR's Insight management solution to do off-property controls. It is user-friendly and provides network management, monitoring, and service deployment across multiple remote and local sites. That means I don't have to be physically at a location to do things if I want to make any changes to the network. It saves time and money."
"The meshing capabilities are the most valuable feature. When I am going in-between buildings, my phone doesn't have to pick up different WiFi. They are all the same. Even in-between the buildings, I stay connected."
"[Being] able to configure the WiFi devices and to see utilization remotely, or from the cloud."
"The pricing is reasonable."
"Omada Access Points are very good in terms of wired technologies and wired connectivity."
"When this solution is set up, it is solid. It offers fast deployment."
"Its sturdiness and cost-effectiveness are the most valuable features."
"We use Omada Access Points for the network and Wi-Fi."
"The solution has been dependable and has kept up with modern technology."
"The initial setup is not complicated."
"The most valuable feature of the solution stems from the fact that it is easy to deploy and reliable."
"Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) could improve if the MIST platform had a built-in master key. This would be an advantage."
"The price could be better."
"The solution is expensive."
"The pricing should be made cheaper."
"Juniper Wireless AP can improve by continually improving its reporting and integration with other systems."
"The pricing is very high in the Indian market."
"There is room for improvement in terms of support and installation."
"They should include SD-WAN features to it."
"I have some frustrations with the ease of use. It tends to be sluggish. The graphical interface is pretty, but not useful. They have this tree that shows connected devices, which makes no sense whatsoever because the labeling field of the tree truncates all the items to the point that it's almost useless. You can't even tell what it is. I would prefer a spreadsheet list of the gear as opposed to a graphical representation."
"The registration is annoying. I have to go back to NETGEAR and log tickets. Access points and router registration are something that they need to address in Insight. They need to fix the bug of getting the devices activated and enrolled in Insight without fighting with them. I have probably done about six of these in the last month. You get to see patterns."
"Due to certain shortcomings in the solution's stability, I feel that the solution's stability requires improvement."
"While the data throughput does provide us with full insight into data being used, we find that it's not very accurate."
"Ubiquiti is a very good company. NETGEAR should look at that model and expand on its remote capabilities. Ubiquiti seems to have a better product."
"My major problem is right now, the area which I need to cover is around 7,000 to 10,000 square feet...I would like NETGEAR Insight Access Points to extend the area coverage they provide."
"A con is the backend system which is very, very slow."
"The biggest issue I've had is that it works very well with the WiFi, but it does not offer any assistance at all with the routers. You can't control them or manage them at all. As soon as you want to use anything on the network side—because I have multiple 28-port switches—you can't manage them using this app."
"TP-Link Auranet EAP is not very efficient, they need to improve it."
"Omada's ordering platform could be improved, though. Some of their distributors are a pain to work with."
"There should be more remote support for the mobile application."
"The solution takes a long time to switch to another connection, which should be improved."
"The price of the solution is an area requiring improvement since I want the solution to be made available at a cheaper price than its current market price."
"The technical support could be improved."
"We have some issues with stability. It is not so fast. That is the main problem."
"It is less affordable for smaller businesses."
