Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"One could say that Cambium is a scalable solution.""Technical support has been good.""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.""The initial setup is easy to handle. It's quite simple.""The pricing of the product is very, very reasonable.""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.""The claim management feature is exceedingly simple.""It's a good product and works well when there is a lot of interference."

"The actual wireless access points themselves are very powerful.""The technical features are very good and it's very useful if you need a wireless solution.""Tech support is good.""The most valuable features are the ease of deployment, the coverage that it offers, and the reliability.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is the size of the outdoor access points. It's great and you can disguise them quite well.""The solution is suitable for many types of environments, such as small businesses.""Provides great coverage and performance.""The most valuable feature is the ease of adding an access point."

Cons
"The solution needs to add an LTE solution and/or something in 3.5GHz.""The range of the product is disappointing so far.""Pricing tends to be higher than its competitors.""If they could move from the fixed wireless point to mobile, it will make a big change in the market. The cnPilot coverage should be covering big spaces. It should also have an external antenna, not a built-in antenna.""The installation and configuration are a bit complex.""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.""The Cambium user interface and configuration should be improved.""The installation is difficult."

More Cambium Cons »

"The solution could be more stable.""It would be nice to some analytical features built into this solution.""They could include a firewall feature in the next release but even there it's not really necessary""I would not consider this solution to be stable.""Integration with AirMagnet, the design software, would be good because it takes the layout of a building and positions the access points accordingly, based on the areas and the construction materials.""The pricing, when compared to Ubiquiti, isn't competitive enough. If you want to have a Government or Public sector client they will ask why they should pay 200 euros if they can get something for 40 euros.""The connectivity and mobility for users could be improved.""Of course, we'd always like it to be cheaper, but that's for every product."

Pricing and Cost Advice
