"Having dual-band is important. Having compatibility with very old equipment on certain frequencies, for example on 2.4 and 5.8.""The pricing of the solution is excellent. It offers a great value.""The setup is easy and user friendly.""Setting it up wasn't so complicated. It is reliable. Security-wise, we didn't have much trouble, but that could be due to our environment. We haven't had so many attacks, at least up till now.""I like the price, quality, and consistency of manufacturing.""The most valuable features are ease of deployment, ease of use, and the interface.""Their hardware is very good.""The range is usually pretty good, which is the most important thing to use because more or less, all wireless access points are the same."

Cons
"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.""This solution needs different models that are more specialized for certain customers.""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.""The integration should be better.""In the next release, the security should be improved by including support for WPA3.""We have had stability issues with some types of portable devices."

"The external devices, the outdoor devices, are not so rugged. For example, for the weather that we have here in Florida, it doesn't hold up well even though it is supposed to be designed for outdoor use.""o if you are setting up any other third party product or any other different product, it sometimes can be a bit difficult. With Ubiquiti, you need to set up because you can adopt the product and that's it, where if it's not a Ubiquiti product it can sometimes be a difficult setup.""Tech support is mostly remote and could be better.""Could be more secure and the controller more user-friendly.""They should have more VLAN features and a designing tool like a link planer.""The control system can be improved by making it easier.""The production is not very stable in our experience.""I would like to see more cloud features that some of the other competitors such as Cisco Meraki have that are very nice."

"The product is around $300 or $400 depending on the device. It's a one-time fee. There aren't ongoing licensing costs.""The price of the solution is high and could be cheaper.""The product is expensive.""We don't buy directly. We have our finance department that buys things. My speculation on the price is that because we buy from private companies and because the product is imported, people tend to give us at higher prices. This is due to the fact that it is government procurement. So, sometimes, they are not paid directly, and they have to go through the whole administrative process before they are paid. So, they tend to compensate by increasing the price, but I won't be able to say what is the exact price.""Ubiquiti Wireless is affordable.""I like the fact that it offers enterprise features at a cheap price. If you compare it with Cisco, it has most of the features that Cisco has been offering but at a lesser price. I am satisfied with its price.""There are no licensing fees for this solution, but the cost is on the higher side.""This solution is cheaper compared to others."
