Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"I like the way that it integrates with the ClearPass security system on-site.""The most valuable feature is reliability.""The most valuable features are price, quality, and performance.""The most valuable feature is the ease of setup and deployment.""I have found the technical support to be one of the most valuable features.""All the features are available, even including the security. The access point enables the matching of any connectivity.""The GUI is user-friendly and the dashboards are good."

"The initial setup is easy to handle. It's quite simple.""The claim management feature is exceedingly simple.""It's a good product and works well when there is a lot of interference.""The pricing of the product is very, very reasonable.""The feature that I really liked is the mesh feature. Currently, we are in quarantine, and the request of home users is that they need to cover the whole house or the whole indoor house. Mesh solution works really nice in Cambium environment. Being able to set up access points in advance is a good feature. It lets you set up the whole environment in your lab or any other place before deploying the access points.""It is easy to deploy, and it is not that complicated. There are a lot of systems that are very complicated, and they require a special kind of training. Their response is also very slow, especially with the Chinese vendors, but with Cambium, we have not faced any issues. Everything is going well in terms of cooperation from Cambium. We are happy with them, their services, their cooperation, and their quick response. They are just amazing.""What I find valuable is the fact that you don't need to purchase any license. Basically you just get the hardware for the access points, configure an IP and connect it with a switch.""Technical support has been good."

Cons
"In the next release, the security should be improved by including support for WPA3.""The integration should be better.""This solution needs different models that are more specialized for certain customers.""Right now, the integration between the support that you are getting from Hewlett-Packard, which is the parent company, and Aruba, they're not meshing together.""From the commercial-side the pricing side is fine but in other aspects, it could be lowered.""Technical support is important to me and I feel that it is something that can be improved.""We have had stability issues with some types of portable devices."

"The solution needs to add an LTE solution and/or something in 3.5GHz.""The Cambium user interface and configuration should be improved.""It has voucher generation. These vouchers are provided to the customers. It would be great if there is a possibility to integrate these vouchers with the system that vendors use to print the receipts. For example, if you go to Starbucks, they provide you a receipt, and in that receipt, you have the code for the Wi-Fi network. I would like some kind of integration or API that can be integrated into any other system for generating such receipts. It would be a really nice feature. It has the cnMaestro portal that normally an integrator sets up. When you deploy this solution to a user, rather than generating a Cambium account, I would like to share this console with the users so that they can at least see the stability of the network and not necessarily trust what I said. It also allows the customers in visualizing the way that they are connecting and the way the network is behaving. I have been in touch with the Cambium team for these features, but they don't yet have the final answer. It is kind of hard to get these solutions immediately. It is a bit challenging to bring these devices to Lima, Peru, or to get Cambium from the distributors. They need to import these devices.""I think this product could be improved if It were SMS based. If I have a visitor in my office, I'd like to be able to send them the wireless password as a message via SMS, so I don't have to give it out.""The installation is difficult.""Pricing tends to be higher than its competitors.""The installation and configuration are a bit complex.""The range of the product is disappointing so far."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer:  I like the way that it integrates with the ClearPass security system on-site.
Top Answer: I don't know much about the licensing, but you license the APs to be able to use or to be configured in Aruba Central. I don't know how much it costs but I believe it's on a yearly- basis.
Top Answer: Not too long ago, Aruba was purchased by Hewlett-Packard. They must be still going through the integration because their websites are not really integrated together well, so it makes it hard to find… more »
Top Answer: For me, Ubiquiti was easy to install, configure, set up, and maintain, while also providing solid coverage and better handoffs between APs. This is especially relevant if you are using Apple products… more »
Top Answer: One could say that Cambium is a scalable solution.
Top Answer: When it comes to licensing costs we have been using the Cambium devices on a trial basis.
