Overall Satisfaction with Aruba Networks Wireless

Aruba is being used by our school district to enhance connectivity for all staff and students. We deployed seamlessly across 15 buildings. This was a lower cost solution to Cisco and it has proven to be very robust and more than capable of supporting our needs. Airwave has been a welcome addition and allows us to see in real-time heat maps and what is happening on our network.
  • Monitoring - Airwave gives you a top down view of your network all the way down to the endpoints.
  • Ease of setup - From the beginning Aruba has been easy to implement and configure
  • Support - Airheads community and the people at Aruba have hands down been some of the best support I have used.
  • Remote access points were a little tricky to get working and requires a controller outside of the two we were currently using. On the plus side they have an inexpensive controller that worked for our needs.
  • I feel Aruba needs to offer more training in a hands on lab environment.
  • Reduced the amount of time I need to monitor the network
  • Helps reduce the guesswork of troubleshooting issues with the network
  • Some of the tools like adding planned AP's in ahead of time to see how heatmaps are affected are phenomenal
They are just as good if not better for a lower price.
Aruba is great if you are looking for the Cisco quality wireless without the Cisco price. I have found Aruba Wireless to be as good as any Cisco equipment we have used in the past. The management with Airwave is outstanding.
