The Cisco Compatible logo was awarded to Purple WiFi on successful completion of Interoperability verification testing (IVT).
The interoperability testing was conducted in a third party laboratory based on testing criteria given by Cisco. Cisco and Purple WiFi have worked together to simulate typical customer configurations and test them thoroughly. All Purple WiFi’s products and technologies are Cisco Compatible and formal recognition of this can be found on the Cisco Marketplace.
Cisco customers faced with a choice between tested and untested products are likely to prefer a product that has gone through IVT. Cisco customers will be reassured knowing that Purple WiFi has been pre-tested, which reduces integration costs, accelerates deployments and minimises risk of failure.
