Hi,

We chose the 3Com, now H3C wx3012 controller and AP9552 accesspoints.

Initial issues where that blackberries could not connect to the wifi, the support initially was mediocre.

Do note that this was at the time that everything got sold to HP. And they did pick up the issue and came around with a fix in about a month time.

It's been working swell since then, I mean, the spelling errors in the UI I can live with. It's been stable so far. It was also by far the most reasonably priced. That counts for something.

Vlans, radius, captive portal etc, worked for me. Ui is good enough to use and diagnose clients. Wireless coverage, is ... well, it's wireless.

Reliable wireless isn't. Unless it's 5Ghz, and stopped by 1 floor or wall. I digress.

Regards,

Seth
