Cons
"I need a bit more time with it before criticizing the features.""Juniper Wireless AP can improve by continually improving its reporting and integration with other systems.""If you want to do more specific stuff, it's a bit limited."

More Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) Cons →

"Integrating with the firewall and management console was a little complex."

More SonicWall SonicWave Access Points Cons →

"Largely we're happy with the product, however, the firmware deployments could maybe be managed a little bit differently.""When they release new products, you should know if there backward compatibility, or do you have to replace the entire forklift, It is useful to understand their strategy and where they are headed.""The support needs improvement. The official support is kind of complex. It's not that straightforward compared to Cisco and Aruba.""Ubiquiti lacks troubleshooting tools. For example, there aren't tools that your clients can use to gather input on the AP itself. There's no visibility in the application layer or reporting. It doesn't have a lot of management features.""There seems to be a drop in service. It's definitely a reliability or stability issue we face.""I have never used cloud solutions. My first approach would be something related to the cloud, and backups on the cloud, and maybe an easier way to connect to it because I have an on-premises environment.""Ubiquiti WLAN would be improved with the addition of individual AP configuration, which would allow for fine-tuning of individual access points and logins.""The product needs to improve the user interface in the migration from old to new versions."
