"I have found Ubiquiti WLAN scalable. We have approximately 200 users using the solution in my organization and do not plan to increase usage.""Ubiquiti WLAN's best feature is the free controller system software.""You can save backups of this controller locally and then I can export it to wherever I want.""Ubiquiti provides good connectivity for the end-user, so I think it's stable.""It is similar to the switches, where it is one of those things where it just works. They are very reliable.""Ubiquiti WLAN is stable.""The solution is scalable.""The pricing is very competitive and the feature sets are very good. It compares well against more expensive options."

"The Wi-Fi security features of this solution have been great for our customers who need to strictly control access to their network.""The solution has been stable."

More WatchGuard Secure Wi‑Fi Pros →

"If you want to do more specific stuff, it's a bit limited.""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."

More Juniper Wireless Access Points (AP Series) Cons →

"The coverage could be increased.""The solution is stable but could improve.""I have found they need to work on the stability of the solution.""The solution could improve by having a cloud version. A cloud version is the easiest to configure anywhere in the world.""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.""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.""Largely we're happy with the product, however, the firmware deployments could maybe be managed a little bit differently."

More Ubiquiti WLAN Cons →

"The price of this solution needs to reviewed, as it is currently high enough to deter customers from trying it.""The solution can be scaled but it has limitations from my experience."
