We are using Cisco Mobility Express throughout our whole organization as an ideal controller-less Wi-Fi solution. [It] provides [a] connection to all people, [including], clients, employees, and guests. It is reliable compared to the router we had provisioned previously. Less disconnection, people can easily connect. It is easy to set up and maintain.
  • Easy to setup
  • Less maintenance
  • Less disconnection
  • Latency issue
  • Software upgrade issues
  • UI minor improvements
Honestly, I think it is well suited in any environment. May it be work, campus, universities, malls. It is a reliable, controller-less solution, simple and easy to use, and easy to maintain. It doesn't require much support from professionals. You install it easily. It provides an uninterrupted connection, and you can easily connect to it.
You can easily manage policies across multiple access points. Along with application control, ACL, and bandwidth control, you can easily modify those things.

It is used in the management building of my factory. The best and useful part [would be] if my one [Cisco] Mobility Express failed, it will automatically be switched to another AP as a Controller. We do not need a separate controller with [Cisco] Mobility Express.
  • Interference mitigation
  • New update provides bandwidth control at all levels
  • Radius integration
  • Hostnames should be resolved properly against each device
  • 4 band of optimization is not good as compared to WLC
  • Software updates should be easy and simple
Cisco Mobility Express is well suited for small to medium-size businesses where separate WLC costs make an impact on the budget, so making the AP a [Cisco] Mobility Express will reduce the cost.
Yes, it helps a lot as Cisco products can be traceable if the neighboring device is also Cisco, so it really helps in troubleshooting and performance.
Application control, ACL, and Bandwidth control are very much improved, and we can now control and implement policies at SSID and host levels.

Our bank's IT department recently implemented Cisco Mobility Express for better network communication across the entire organization, and we are truly satisfied with this amazing product. We are a corporate sector, and a vigorous network communication medium is always needed in order to communicate with external vendors. It is quite simple and easy to configure and takes only a few minutes to get the work done. The wi-fi architecture has been simplified and modified to a great extent and is smartly designed for small to medium deployments. Because of its high speed and efficiency, it has resolved a lot of network communication issues.
  • It has a stunning interface which is easy to understand even for a non-tech person.
  • It comes with a wide variety of functions and a detailed guide on how to use and change them according to need.
  • You don't have to pay extra for WLC.
  • Support provided by Cisco round the clock and gives [us] immense confidence in this product.
  • Troubleshoot mechanism is very efficient.
  • There are no frequent firmware updates.
  • Although it is [very] secure, [the] latest security patch should be frequently included in updates.
  • Some minor improvements required in [the] interface.
As it provides virtual WLC functionality, it has incredibly amazing built-in features that perfectly suit small to medium companies. It has the capability to manage the entire organization network seamlessly. It might be possible that it won't work smoothly and elegantly for large firms where there is a bulk amount of data bandwidth used.
Our organization has benefited [broadly] from implementing Cisco products. It provides seamless and reliable connectivity to the entire network. It is robust, efficient, and incredibly fast. It has all the relevant features that were required to get our job done. It works perfectly fine. We are planning to deploy it [in] our other regional offices as well as in branches.
It provides full control to set or manage security policies of our organization as per requirement. We have implemented policies in different departments [based on] what employees can or cannot have access to.

We've implemented Cisco Mobility Express in one of our smaller branch offices, with just a few Access Points, where a standalone WLC would make no sense. For a branch office, which especially focuses on R&D, a fast and reliable connection was very important.
  • Fast and reliable network connectivity
  • Good configuration GUI
  • Quick and simple configuration
  • No standalone WLC costs
  • There were some minor issues, but were solved with a firmware update.
I'd recommend [Cisco Mobility Express] for small and medium businesses due to max AP limitations.
We've chosen the Aironet 1830 802.11ac Wave 2 APs and I can say, that they perform exceptionally well, considering the throughput, range and stability.

We use [Cisco Mobility Express] across our entire organization to improve our network capabilities across many facilities.
  • It gives our company reliable connectivity to our network.
  • It gives a detailed approach to what functions are available and how to change them.
  • It is easy to troubleshoot problems in the system.
  • Honestly, I haven't found very many issues since we started using it, and I'm glad for that!
[Cisco Mobility Express] gives IT visibility of our network and what our wireless system is doing and what functions it has. It allows us to troubleshoot when employees have issues easily and quickly.
We use AnyConnect for our VPN capabilities for the entire organization. It works well, and seems to be a good product for what we need it to do. It allows access for our employees to our internal systems from outside our facilities.
It makes it easier to control policies when we have a reliable network that allows employees to access it whenever they need to. Our policies are based around what employees should or should not have access to, and this allows us to monitor those activities whenever we need to.
