Meraki Wins InfoWorld’s 2012 Technology of the Year Award
Meraki’s Enterprise Cloud Controller is recognised by InfoWorld with the prestigious 2012 Technology of the Year Award. InfoWorld thoroughly tested Meraki’s products against a tough field of competitors, and awarded Meraki’s cloud controller for improving manageabliltiy, scalability, and capacity in enterprise networks.
Doug Dineley, Executive Editor of InfoWorld magazine explains why Meraki won: «Meraki puts a cloud-based twist on the management of wireless LANs. Instead of managing the network through a central controller — yet another piece of hardware you must buy and maintain — you manage it through the Meraki Enterprise Cloud Controller, a clean and polished Web application, hosted by Meraki. Setup is a snap. Managing APs across multiple locations no longer requires dedicated WANs, VPNs, or additional controllers. Admins can draw on handy features such as a Google Map of your APs, detailed reports on network usage, and the ability to set bandwidth limits on users or groups and quality-of-service policies by traffic type — and no more headaches associated with keeping your wireless LAN patched and up-to-date.»
