Almost 70% of companies use BYOD for mobile devices, either as their sole purchasing model or as part of a larger purchasing strategy. Enterprises report over 73% of their WLAN capacity growth over 2012 and ’13 will be provisioned specifically for mobile devices.
BTA Bottom Line: In the short-term, Cisco and Meraki’s solutions will remain independent. If you are looking for cloud-based WLAN offerings for mobile devices, continue to evaluate market leaders like Aerohive, Aruba and Meraki. Also, evaluate Cisco’s roadmap after the acquisition is complete; this is when Cisco will begin to integrate Meraki’s capabilities.
