In the beginning of the month we had the honor of participating in Wireless Field Day 8. For the unsure, the Tech Field Day crew brings in independent bloggers, speakers, and podcasters to vendors in the bay area for deep-dives. The 12 delegates of #WFD8 came by Cisco to discuss our approach to operational simplicity. Greg Dorai, VP of Product Management, kicked off the Field Day with an overview of our sessions: 802.11ac Wave 2, CMX 10.2, and Systems Manager.
Next Brian Levin, Product Manager of Platform WLAN, introduced Cisco Mobility Express and discussed what 802.11ac Wave 2 means to Cisco. He gives an overview of the new capabilities found in the Cisco Aironet 1830 and 1850 access points, such as Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO). He then further went on to show on a whiteboard the provisioning process of Mobility Express.
Here are some questions that were asked during Brian’s first session on Mobility Express (time stamps included):
(11:50) @WiredNot: On the SMB, small medium business story with mobility express, how does that reconcile with Meraki when it comes to marketing and how do you differentiate which solution is right for which small business?
(16:00) @WifiKiwi: If you have a distributed enterprise that wants to use Mobility Express rollout, is there any type of cloud based provisioning system [for the access points] or do they have to pre-provision the access points?
Wireless Field Day 8 was a great success for Cisco and the delegates who attended. Look for the next recap blog on #WFD8 where Rajat Tayal, Technical Marketing Engineer, performs a demo on Mobility Express.
If you would like to view all of the session videos they are now posted on YouTube.
