    Aruba Wireless

    We are a heavy user of Aruba wireless network kit and we are the only healthcare organisation that uses it in conjunction with Watchguard technology in the UK.

    I see all the time that people are using Ruckus, Meru and the other listed on here but Aruba doesn't crop up very often and I just wondered why.

    I have added a poll to this if you don't want to comment just drop a vote in please so I can get some ideas.

    Do you use Aruba kit, yes or no and if you are looking check that box. If something else please say.

    I am just interested as I see more of it now in pubs where they provide internet for public to use and I cannot fault the equipment.

    Use it at one site and Ruckus at another, both are decent, Aruba is much easier to upgrade - three clicks instead of a month long treasurehunt to get access to the mythical firmware which then still has pre-reques and unsupported upgrade paths.

    Have found the Ruckus hardware to be a bit more robust given adverse power conditions though, the Aruba stuff can get a bit tetchy if it does not get is daily dose of cherryohms, good breakfast and all that.

    Signal wise the Ruckus owns the Aruba kit but they both have their good and bad points.
