Overall Satisfaction with Juniper WLA & WLC Series (discontinued)

The Juniper WLA and WLC [Series] hardware was used across our business for quite a few years as they went through revisions. We did move onto Cisco gear but the Junipers worked quite well for what we needed. We had a lot of dead spots on our wifi previously and these two devices fixed those issues for us!
  • Great pricing structure
  • Licensing was easy and straight forward
  • Interface was quick and simple
  • Bug patches were always a problem to do
  • Support was rarely helpeful
  • It seemed they stopped releasing fixes for many bugs we encountered so we had to live with them
  • A bit more time troubleshooting client disconnects
  • Money saved on the more expensive hardware
  • Frustration with support on many occasions

Would you buy Juniper WLA & WLC Series (discontinued) again?

Yes

Back in the day these were really well priced, and had some amazing coverage. After using newer Cisco gear, while more expensive, they dont shine so brightly anymore. They did have trouble under load as well. I would recommend them to someone only if they were really constrained in their budget for wifi equipment.
