Meraki Hosted Architecture
As wireless devices become more ubiquitous, organizations need to provide faster, more comprehensive, and more robust wireless coverage throughout their facilities. However, constructing these wireless networks has traditionally been complex, time-consuming, and costly. In the same way that hosted software applications, or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), offer significant advantages over the client-server model, the Meraki Cloud Controller architecture provides a simpler, faster, and more cost-effective deployment model for wireless networks over a large area. This paper discusses the evolution of enterprise wireless LAN architectures, the details of the Meraki hosted approach, and the benefits that can be realized through Meraki's architecture.
