What does Cloud Managed Wireless actually mean? Well, it is pretty simple. Cloud managed means that all the management is done remotely over the internet, eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional on-site wireless controllers.
We are proud to introduce Cisco Meraki product line which is fully cloud managed solution, from networking and security to wireless access points. Cisco Meraki products are built from the ground up for cloud management, and come out of the box with centralized management, layer 7 device and application visibility, real time web-based diagnostics, monitoring, reporting, and much, much more. Cisco Meraki deploys quickly and easily, without training or proprietary command line interfaces.
