Ruckus seem to focus on bad mouthing the competition at every opportunity rather than selling on their features. Cheap, whoopy do, clever antenna, wow! Test Meraki against any of them and you'll never look back.
    Erm... Your first post stated

    The cost of the license from Meraki can be expensive if you are looking to deploy to a single site but I have heard they are up for a deal if this is the case.
    It is quite obvious that you work for Meraki, but as yet you have not provided any evidence other than to slate the competition... Something you say they do, but without any substantiation. I suggest you practice what you preach and stick to providing evidence as to how Meraki is a better system than the others.

    Also, 'feature rich' is in the eye of the beholder. Many features provided on managed wireless systems are extraneous to a school's needs.

    Finally, why on Earth would any organisation wish to put core infrastructure in the cloud? Boggles the mind.

  2. Thanks to localzuk from:

    Can't see that study without signing up, which I have no inclination to do. I don't see how Gartner can be considered an unbiased source though, considering they are paid for analysts who don't reveal who paid them.

    • No re-occurring costs apart from annual support contract

    For @StuartWhite or @Net-Ctrl...
    The link above is 404 and I would be *very* interested to see that PDF if it still exists please??

    The comparison sheet I can find is from October 2012, so it will be a little out of date. If you would still like it I can send it on a DM to you. This acts as a comparison document rather than one that picks fault at Meraki, which is something we wouldn't want to be seen to do. I think it is fair to say that most wireless manufacturers have their area of expertise and it is more about choosing the right solution that meets your needs and demands.
