D-Link

Best in small networks & appropriate in industrial areas. AP works fine in any temperature & location (in remote locations office or remote location). Open area wireless connectivity is good with good range. Simple VLAN management and management are good. Backup and restoration is very good. Small home offices using wireless network work awesome.

SonicWall

I am hard pressed to determine a situation where SonicPoint devices are a good fit. The signal strength of these devices are so poor that we had complaints from customers who switched from cheap, home class devices. The scenario that I could think of where SonicPoint devices would be appropriate would be a situation where companies are using a SonicWall firewall and are mandated to use wireless devices from the same company.

      Alternatives Considered

      D-Link

      We studied and selected D-Link due to usage in a limited area, and it is a very cost effective solution; therefore, D-Link Wireless AP and D-Link Wireless Controller [were] selected for our organization. We also [researched] Cisco, but Cisco was an expensive product and not appropriate in our required area or task; therefore, we selected D-Link.

      Ubiquiti products have been much more reliable than SonicPoint devices. Going forward, we will no longer install SonicWall devices. The ROI on these devices are definitely negative. I cannot recommend SonicPoint devices to anyone. We have been much happier with Ubiquiti devices since we started switching our clients to them.
