    Hi,

    can anyone tell me, is Meridian a multi-vendor system or not?

    #ALE

    Multi-vendor in terms of what per se?  WLAN environment?

    I mean, is it possible to deploy Meridian on non-Aruba devices (Cisco, Motorola, HP for example)?

    Without using any wireless, Meridian can provide an application and way finding features. In this mode, Meridian functions as a way-finding turn by turn application, without referencing wireless location. 

     

    With an underlying WLAN, it is supported with Aruba's ALE engine (analystics and location engine) which will provide a much richer experience.  Meridian, before Aruba's aquisition, interfaced with Cisco's MSE as a licensable option.

    Ok, Thank you.

    I was talking about wireless networks.

    Can I find any list of supported vendors (which provide wireless networks) to integrate with Meridian?

    And one more question: is it possible to integrate Cisco (I mean Cisco wireless infrustructure) with Aruba Meridian (without Aruba AP and Aruba controller)?

    regarding other wireless vendors..you should wait to a full product release from Aruba - because all the info (on that site)  is before Aruba bought this software soultion..
