Good support, easy to manage, and excels in the cloud environment
Pros and Cons
  • "The technical support from Extreme Networks is perfect."
  • "The ability to integrate with network devices from other vendors would be helpful."

What is our primary use case?

We are a distributor for various networking products and ExtremeWireless is one of the solutions that we have experience with. We do between 2,000 and 3,000 projects a year for industries such as hospitality, entertainment, and education.

What is most valuable?

Their main power is the cloud environment because it's much better than the others in the market.

This product is easy to manage.

What needs improvement?

The ability to integrate with network devices from other vendors would be helpful.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have used this product for about 11 years, since before Aerohive was acquired by Extreme Networks.

September 2022
Find out what your peers are saying about Extreme, Cisco, Aruba Networks and others in Wireless LAN. Updated: September 2022.
633,572 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is 100% because we have never had an experience with faulty hardware. This is a product that we will continue to distribute.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In terms of scalability, so far, we haven't found a project that it wasn't able to fulfill. I think that officially, they go up to more than 10,000 IPs. We don't have such big companies in the Netherlands.

How are customer service and support?

The technical support from Extreme Networks is perfect. If we have an issue then there's always very quick response and we don't have any problems. As we are trained to give support to our clients, it is only on rare occasions that we need vendor support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. It is all based in the cloud, so it's very simple.

What about the implementation team?

We are fully trained to give our customers the second and third-line support.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are both paid and free licenses of the cloud environment, with only basic functionality in the free version. The paid version is priced to fit the market. Suitability of one over the other depends on the customer's needs.

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a good product and one that I recommend.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

A stable and secure solution that is straightforward to implement
Pros and Cons
  • "The security is very good."
  • "The current product line is very high-level and is well suited for enterprise-level organizations, but they need a more cost-effective solution for smaller businesses."

What is our primary use case?

This product is typically used to cover normal Wi-Fi applications, such as the hospitality sector or small companies. We have been involved in lots of projects where we have installed this solution for our clients.

What is most valuable?

This is part of an all-in-one solution for voice and wireless data. It has all of the basic features that the customers need.

The security is very good.

What needs improvement?

The current product line is very high-level and is well suited for enterprise-level organizations, but they need a more cost-effective solution for smaller businesses.

For how long have I used the solution?

We began using this solution when it was Avaya Wireless, starting about ten years ago.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This product is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution scales very well. We have not yet had problems scaling up to the number of access points that are needed. Our customers are a mix of medium-sized and enterprise-level businesses.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good. Their team is very helpful if you need it.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have also worked with similar products from Aruba.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward, typically taking about an hour to deploy. As long as the access points have been installed and are powered up, it takes about an hour to configure.

What about the implementation team?

Our in-house team deploys this solution for our clients. Typically, two or three people are involved, depending on the size of the project.

What other advice do I have?

With the inception of the Extreme Cloud, we are now in the process of migrating all of our customers to that cloud-based deployment.

Concerning Extreme Wireless, our customers are happy and I haven't had any specific requests for new features.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to take the required training.

I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
