"The most valuable features are central management and the many other features available."
"The product is a stable solution."
"This is the only product on the market currently that supports as many access points for wifi users."
"The most valuable features are the roaming profile, the mesh, and the performance."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to connect and broadcast to different networks without using a VLAN or a layer two switch, which allows you to easily create guest networks."
"I found that It's really good when comparing it to any other product or it is much better in terms of features that the customer requires."
"Fortinet FortiWLM is good for tracking assets, monitoring, and overall management."
"Although there are a few steps, the initial setup is pretty straightforward."
"The actual wireless access points themselves are very powerful."
"Tech support is good."
"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 most valuable features are the ease of deployment, the coverage that it offers, and the reliability."
"Provides great coverage and performance."
"The solution is suitable for many types of environments, such as small businesses."
"When using the FortiGate as the wireless controller, you cannot have automatic user registration, which is something that they should offer."
"The roaming of Fortinet FortiWLM could improve when comparing it to other solutions. We are missing some of the functionality in the controller. Additionally, they should offer more logs instead of using FortiAnalyzer because all the users will not be using the same thing."
"The guest management features need to be improved by adding automation."
"The interface could certainly do with some improvement. We have other customers with WiFi networks, and they always use Ubiquiti. With Ubiquiti, it's a much better user interface, and it is much easier to configure."
"In the next release, they could improve by adding a controller-less server, or architecture that is provided in other solutions, such as Aruba. This would be a great benefit for customers."
"Documentation could be improved."
"Areas for improvement would be the compatibility with Apple products and cross-platform integration."
"Cost is something that could be improved, but you have to pay for what you get."
"The connectivity and mobility for users could be improved."
"The solution could be more stable."
"Of course, we'd always like it to be cheaper, but that's for every product."
"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."
"I would not consider this solution to be stable."
"It would be nice to some analytical features built into this solution."
