Cisco Mobility Express

What Is Mobility Express? Cisco recently introduced a two new AP models: the 1850 and 1830. The purpose of this article is not to discuss the exact technical specs of those two models, but I will say they are 802.11ac Wave 2 APs. What I really want to focus on is a new “controller” that…
