IDGNS: How can Aerohive stay ahead of Cisco?
Flynn: The key thing is that we have built the next-generation architecture that's the foundation that we can build upon. We've built an architecture that scales up and down: handles small business problems, large enterprise problems, with a very efficient, unified architecture. Cisco has gone and created three different competing architectures.

Maybe there's a magic I don't understand, but there are definitely some places where you see a bit of a bubble. The space we are in, we are not in a bubble at all. We believe there's a lot of potential to grow and increase values of companies in this sector as the mobility revolution continues.
