621,593 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This product is quite stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability-wise, it is quite good.

Our company is quite small. We have between 10 and 15 people that use it.

One of our clients has a large plant, and they have several EAP access points on-premises. They have between 800 and 1,000 users. Since the access points were installed, they haven't had any issues with them.

How are customer service and support?

It is quite difficult to get support from TP-Link. They should provide more support to their clients. Sometimes, we just research the problem and solve the problems ourselves.

I would rate the technical support a two out of five.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Neutral

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward and easy to do.

We can set up a single access point in ten minutes. Depending on the person that does the implementation, it can be very fast.

What about the implementation team?

We do the implementation with our in-house team.

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

TP-Link provides solutions that are more cost-effective than other well-known brands. It is a one-time cost with no licensing fees.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are currently researching Aruba Wireless products to compare against TP-Link.

We chose TP-Link because it's very cost effective. It is cheaper than the other big brands, like Aruba or Cisco. Our clients prefer to have a cost-effective solution because some of them plan to scale, having a large quantity of access points.

For example, some companies require 20 access points, but they have a limited budget. This means that we need to modify their plan or look for a solution for them that will fit their budget.

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a good product and I recommend it because it's easy to use.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
