Overall Satisfaction with ExtremeWireless

In our company regional, our entire data network infrastructure is Extreme containing POE switches and wifi access points. We manage this equipment through the cloud software that the manufacturer sold us. The extreme access points have been in use for almost two years and are model 250 Wifi 5 - 802.11ac wave 2. This solution is excellent, and we are very pleased to meet all our internet connection and access requirements. The main issue with this purchase was resolving internet slowness and connection security issues through Radius 802.1x authentication and guest portal.

Pros

  • Allows simultaneous access of more than 200 people per access point.
  • It has great design and signal capture and send enhancement features.
  • Authenticated access on the Radius server for employees.
  • Access with registration portal for guests.
  • Warranty with quick parts replacement.

Cons

  • The hotspot equipment is not upgradeable to Wifi 6. You need to buy the new model.
  • 24x7 warranty is much more expensive.
  • 3X3 MIMO and high level support for 2.4ghz and 5ghz radios.
  • It avoids external interference and protects the signal from degrading.
  • Great coverage radius with a single access point.
  • Bluetooth.
  • It has POE ports to connect directly to the switch and does not need a source.
  • It's a great hardware investment for many, many years of high-end wireless networking.
  • It can be updated with new firmwares.
  • It has a low price compared to other competitors.

The equipment has great performance and connection speed and supports a high density of users connected at the same time without lag and crashes. The management of this equipment is being carried out through software with cloud management and is accessed by our infrastructure team to configure and monitor alerts.
