Cisco Meraki New Cameras and AI Analytics

Author: Sean Patton, Published on Dec 14, 2018

Meraki has released their second generation of video surveillance with 3 new cameras, AI-based video analytics, and 2 cloud-based storage options.

Cisco is a leading manufacturer in the IT space, though they are decreasing in popularity with security integrators, and their video surveillance offerings have not reached wide adoption. However, their new offerings are tapping into 2 of integrator's top positive trends.

In this note, based on a conversation with Cisco, we share details of the new offerings and competitive advantages.
