    Wireless providers @Bett 2014

    One of my tasks for Bett this year is to look into a new wireless system; I have already made a note to visit Meraki, Meru and Xirrus. Is there anyone else there I should be looking to harass? The website has been useless for trying to find providers of particular products this year and don't even get me started on the app.

    Definitely consider Ruckus, Aruba and perhaps even Cisco if you've got cash to burn.

    how could you forget about the Ruckus

    As Irritable Tech said we will have some Ruckus tech and sales experts on our stand and the kit on show. We are on stand F121, please feel free to stop by.

    I was down at the show building our stand yesterday and the whole show is looking great

    Not sure if Aruba are there but we use them and they are "best of" at the moment due to their mature 802.11ac technology.

    Yes, ac is up there on the desireable list, I don't seem to be able to find any mention of Aruba on the Bett website. I will have to go old school and pick up the telephone.

    Aerohive is absolutely fantastic and cost effective from my point of view,

    Have a look at LAN3 stand at BETT and the contact is Adam Slocombe, excellent service from them and the technical service is second to non.

    Will give them a look. Looks like I'm going to clock up some miles.
