Bias-Free Language

Be ready for scale with an open platform

Most location-based solutions in the market today require proprietary, vendor-specific hardware and software. This limits the variety of use cases they can serve and creates management complexity.

By contrast, Cisco Spaces is an open platform that sits at the nexus of a broad ecosystem of device and software partners, channel partners, and industry associations.

Our ability to unify management in a multivendor, multitechnology environment using the existing wireless and switching infrastructure is the reason our platform can address more use cases, scale more easily, and deliver better business outcomes for our customers.
