Cons
"The installation is easy. However, my implementation is complicated and you would need special training to complete it.""Technical support could be improved. They could respond a bit faster.""It's very old-fashioned, which is why we have made the decision to replace it.""The scalability and the support could be better.""It should be a faster device.""In the next release of the solution, there should be better integration with other platforms.""Sometimes it can be difficult to find the right sizing.""HPE Wireless WAN could provide better access points and better pricing."

More HPE Wireless WAN Cons »

"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 solution could be more stable.""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.""Of course, we'd always like it to be cheaper, but that's for every product.""The connectivity and mobility for users could be improved.""They could include a firewall feature in the next release but even there it's not really necessary""It would be nice to some analytical features built into this solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There is a license for this solution and the license is normally paid annually but this depends on the contract.""We have been satisfied with the price.""The solution is quite expensive. You have to pay for every node and it can get expensive fast, it is approximately £3,000 per month.""Price wise, it is on the medium end of the scale. It could be lower.""I find the price to be reasonable.""We don't pay a licensing fee, we purchased the product."
