For me, the ease of setup and the rugged nature in harsh environments are most valuable. So, durability and ease of use have been its best features.

The most valuable features are the roaming profile, the mesh, and the performance.

At the moment, particularly with the COVID-19 situation, the most valuable feature is probably the IPsec VPN, which is easy to implement with Fortinet.

The most valuable features of this solution are its speed, reliability, and integration with the firewall.

Although there are a few steps, the initial setup is pretty straightforward.

I found that It's really good when comparing it to any other product or it is much better in terms of features that the customer requires.

This is the only product on the market currently that supports as many access points for wifi users.

The most valuable feature is the ability to connect and broadcast to different networks without using a VLAN or a layer two switch, which allows you to easily create guest networks.

The firewall integration is very important for the security of the connection.

I am working as a Senior Technical Executive at a coaching institute for IIT- JEE, Pre-Medical, Commerce, Law, and Pre-Foundation. We are evaluating Fortinet, Ruckus, Cisco, and Huawei.  Which one of these is the best wireless controller for maximum client connectivity and has high throughput?

Hi, It is all dependent on the size of the controllers in question. Though I would suggest getting a cloud base technology so you are limited by any controller and have much better redundancy. Take a look at Arista Cognitive Wireless

Hi, Every one of the mentioned solutions is good but you need to check the needs which are security since the firms you are working with need protection and tracking of data. For this reason, I recommend: - if you have FortiGate installed then go for Fortinet Wireless since they can be integrated with the Fortigate without buying a controller and they work perfectly together and you will get the advantage of applying rules to the client himself whether mobile or computer, easily managed & monitored, more visibility over your network and incident notifications. If the above doesn't apply then you can go with the best one that fits your budget and security needs which for me doesn't fall on the mentioned solution but to go with ARUBA Instant Access Wireless Solution and the reasons are as such: - Cisco is too much expensive and you got to pay smart support with some complexity in configuration and you need to buy a controller - Ruckus is good but when you want to have the security you need to buy a controller with licenses and it won't give you the security needed since it is just a wireless solution - Huawei is not a stable company since it had many ups and downs and they can reach with you to have all the solutions nearly free so that you install their brand. Whereas Aruba you don't need a controller in the Instant access points and you will get the minimum security with radius integration and what is important a lifetime warranty on the access points. In addition, if the number of access points increased and you want more detailed management and more advanced configurations, you can buy a controller either on-premises or on-cloud with Aruba. The above information is based on my experience with all the solutions and their POC. If you need any more details and consultancy, kindly feel free to contact me. Regards.

For indoor access points, there is a one-time cost, upfront, whereas outdoor access points have an annual fee.

Fortinet would do something with their pricing model to attract smaller business users and eliminate the mandatory service contracts.
