Submission + - Dear Cisco, Please Don't Screw Up Meraki (networkcomputing.com)

CowboyRobot writes: "Lee Badman at NetworkComputing.com has some advice in light of Cisco paying $1.2 billion for WLAN competitor Meraki. "The problem is Cisco takes the big-network model and tries to force it into places where it doesn't fit. For instance, I would've needed at least a handful of independently configured and managed Cisco devices in a branch deployment that I run to bring up the same core functionality that Meraki delivers in a single MX appliance. Meraki has been that rare vendor that delivers the ease of use it promises, while not getting so big that it feels like developers and product managers are on a different planet from their customers. Here's hoping that all that's good with Meraki rubs off on Cisco. And regardless of how Cisco handles the Meraki integration, this acquisition validates the notion of cloud-managed networking.""
