Ensign are now official UK partners of cloud-based solutions specialists, Meraki Wireless.
Dorset based Wireless LAN solutions provider, Ensign Communications, have announced their official partnership with the cloud managed network solutions manufacturer, Meraki. The development comes as San Francisco based Meraki were recently acquired by networking giants Cisco, in a deal worth a reported 1.2 Billion Dollars.
Offering an alternative solution to traditional controller-based wireless LAN architecture, Meraki’s cloud networking model, which includes wireless LAN, Ethernet switches, security appliances and mobile device management solutions, significantly reduces enterprise capital expenditure and saw the company’s profits soar prior to the Cisco buyout.
According to Cisco VP, Sujai Hajela, in an interview given to Network World, Meraki will form part of a new division within their ranks, focused solely on cloud networking. He also stated that Cisco are keen to “preserve the Meraki product line and culture”, which is a key part of Meraki’s USP and market positioning; simple and secure enterprise networking for organisations that do not necessarily have dedicated IT resources.
The addition of Meraki to Ensign’s already impressive roster of industry partners will allow the solutions-focused company to expand on their own offering and to provide their customers with the option of a leading cloud based networking solution.
Jim Lucking, IT Technical Architect at Ensign, said: “The power and functionality of their offerings are vast, bundling in many advanced services, such as Layer 7 traffic inspection and firewalling, that other vendors only include as expensive additions; and all within a very intuitive administration tool. Ensign are very excited to be working with Meraki”.
