Transitioning from Cisco & Aruba WLAN Controllers to the Cloud
If you are using Cisco and Aruba controllers for Wi-Fi, we know a lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into the deployment, configuration, and management of your WLAN. New cloud-based solutions (leveraging microservices) can provide several advantages, but how do you get from the old WLAN world to the new one with the least amount of time and pain? We’ll show you how.
Join the latest AI:rchitect series webinar, where we will deep dive into:
WLAN software architectures: Monolithic vs Microservices
