FWIW, our techs here at ACRSD absolutely love the Meraki controller's interface. They feel that it's very intuitive and gives them lots of valuable information.

I'm applying for erate money to get Ruckus, too.  I've deployed a few of their APs in the parts of the building where I've gotten complaints with Unifi gear installed, and the phone just stops ringing.  Of course I did an RFP and did evaluations of all the major players, they're all great, but Ruckus was the most bang for the buck.

And...I forgot - we are an HP switching, moving to Ruckus Wifi, and Sophos UTM/router.   All are strong components and working well for us.

They say you will never be fired if you go with Cisco.  But maybe if the Finance Director paid attention to the financial premium associated with Cisco, it would bite you, and you know where.

I am looking for feedback with respect to WiFi systems, especially
thoughts regarding Cisco Meraki or Aerohive.

Milton Schools has been an Aerohive customer for at least seven years.  We
are looking to replace all of the older APs with newer models as well as
greatly expanding the density of APs to better handle the increase in our
WiFi traffic.  We are also a Cisco switching infrastructure shop.

Because of the size of the project scope, we are in the process of
determining whether we want to continue with Aerohive or move to a Cisco
Meraki solution.  Although we have not ruled out anything, our most
logical moves would be to continue with Aerohive or move to Meraki due to
its tie-in with Cisco.

I would be most interested in your thoughts and/or experiences with Meraki
or Aerohive, or other systems if you feel strongly about them.
