Our company uses Pakedge and Luxul switch/router/Wi-Fi equipment. I see in a lot of the threads on Stack Exchange that Pakedge and Luxul are rarely or never mentioned, (Network Engineering, Super User, Server Fault). However, I see Ruckus and Aruba have a littler more status online. I have always had issues implementing and maintaining Pakedge systems (Wi-Fi managed/unmanaged) and Luxul (wifi managed/unmanaged switches managed and routers). Constant firmware issues/upgrades/downgrades, controllers that are supposed to manage a Wi-Fi network more efficiently but don't.
Sorry for the background, now for the question:
I would like to change what equipment we use what are your experiences with, Ruckus, Aruba or Cisco? This is for the scope of a large network setup for a Control4 system, (20 APs on six 28 port managed PoE switches).
I would prefer Cisco for switches/routers, but what about its Wi-Fi? I don't really get a chance to mess around with Cisco's Wi-Fi except for low end Linksys devices, which I think Belkin owns now.
I would like to use Ruckus or Aruba now. What should I know before I get either one? Anyone ever have problems with either, tech-support or setup wise?
I keep having head aches with Pakedge and Luxul. I just want something that is more reliable and least when it comes to setup. Can't tell you how many times I have to fight with a Luxul AP just to get it setup and save the configuration I want.
Please share any experiences with me.
