Our license is expiring this year and with infrastructure being erate eligible, I've bid out to all the big players (Aruba, Aerohive, Ruckus, Xirrus, Meraki.It's completely separate from the LAN and can't touch anything besides the internet.Ruckus has been very generous, as has Aerohive.If you submit this after you sign up for a plan we'll update your plan for any future payments.Meraki wants to push us from 29.Public Educations : the institution must be publicly funded.That, in turn, provides a lower management cost to the non-profits. .At the time, there wasn't a 1:1 or anything of the sort being planned.
Xirrus is another Meraki-ish option.
Privately funded institutions do not apply.Here's who can apply: Charitable Non-Profits : a government certificate of tax-exempt status is required.(sorry if this was already answered, just thought I would throw that out there).A true win-win for non-profits.So we went with pre-Cisco Meraki.That's been a wonderful feature.They used to be rediculously expensive, but have apparently changed as they have reengineered their line.
Fast forward two years, 1:1 comes rolling around.
