I'm working as a Technical Applications Specialist at a Pharma/Biotech company with 10000+ employees.
I'm researching to purchase a high-performance Wireless LAN device. Which one of the following products would you recommend:
Thank you in advance!
You can purchase WiFi access points from any of the above vendors. But it must be a commercial access point as in AP a few connect to the limited devices and a few can connect large devices with a single AP.
It will totally depend on your work environment and access point signals covering the area. In the hall, AP can cover a large area but there is a concrete wall between two rooms or a corridor then it can down the signal to 50 DBM. So, when deciding on a WIFI/AP keep all these things in mind.

If you want high performance and stability, you should definitely go with Ruckus Wireless.
Ruckus Wireless APs have:
- Adaptive antenna technology (called BeamFlex)
This technology analyzes different paths to reach the client and electronically turns itself to a directional antenna, choosing the path that gives the best performance to reach each specific client. If the client is mobile or if the environment changes (such as a warehouse) the selection of paths/direction also changes instantly.
Transmitting in a directional way allows a good Signal-to-Noise Ratio and also causes less interference for other nearby APs outside the path of the directional transmission.
- ChannelFly technology
This technology chooses the best channel based on performance rather than background scanning for noise.
- Polarization Diversity
This technology allows the clients not to lose signal strength when held at different angles (important for mobile devices such as tablets and telephones).
- Better receive sensitivity compared to the competitors
All these features make Ruckus Wireless a better choice than any other competitor (better performance, better coverage area, more stable and surprise-free communication especially in not so easy conditions such as noise, too many clients, too much traffic).

It also depends on the integration with your LAN network and Network Access Control. Both have campus and cloud-native solutions.
One single pane of glass for all your end devices is very advisable. So be sure to integrate your LAN with your WLAN and NAC, and if possible with your firewall gateway and endpoint security.
Aruba Wireless has a very rich feature set and integration possibilities. Extreme has a very high level of automation and easy to deploy virtual services on their SPBM fabric.
So it all depends on your expectations and business case...
The wireless network has been one of the critical pillars in Guangdong Technion-Israel Insitute of Technology(GTIIT) since its birth in 2017, connecting well over 75% of different types of mobile devices and shouldering over 90% of network traffic from end-user devices to internal servers or internet resources. The IT Department faces considerable challenges.
