Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Aironet and Catalyst Access Points

This is one of the most reliable access-points I came across during my 9 years of experience. The stability with respect to wireless users provides maximum security capability making the business more effective in a new age enterprise network where scalability is required. We use it for some of the specific locations in the US, UK, and India.
  • It delivers performance for secure and reliable wireless connections. The best part is reliability with speed.
  • It provided the best performance for mobile devices and laptops due to the availability it provides - 3 times more than normal ones.
  • The scalability is huge can go up to, or more, than an 18k access point which can almost cover any big organization.
  • The highest 802.11n performance with Cisco CleanAir technology - for a self-healing, self-optimizing wireless network.
  • Cost is a bit high. However, it's an extremely good product.
  • I faced a few RF issues. The engineering team can do better on this.
  • RF hidden node issue.
  • It has had a positive impact on our organization because we as a company do a lot of acquisition which this solution gives flexibility towards our mobile users.
  • Cost is high but in terms of future ROI should be a win-win situation.
  • Clean air and environment-friendly - this is what the next generation wanted.
Yes. Performance wise, we really benefited since the speed available makes the mobile/laptop work-friendly. It completes business needs appropriately. Clean Air technology makes the Access Points unique and the most selective ones in the market. The reason we selected this was Ciscoisco has innovated the Access Point Technology and given every company a chance for next era technology.
Yes. The modular component has improved a lot and still, there is a scope of improvement I believe. The RF technology enhancement towards speed and availability benefits everyone.
  • Aruba Networks Wireless
Aruba is also well known but Cisco products, I feel, are more reliable and its features are uniquely designed. The support team of Cisco is more proactive when compared to Aruba. Cisco has been in the market for a long time and it has the potential to change the wireless technology completely with their research and development.
It is well-suited when organizations are scalable and the enterprise is growing in terms of users. This is the best product for that scenario because it gives flexibility in terms of performance and availability. Its performance-ranging capacity makes the product more tempting for wireless users.
