We had a bake off between Aerohive, Meraki, Aruba and Ruckus a little over 2 years ago. When of the test that I ran was to see how many clients I could connect to each access while streaming a youtube video. With Aerohive in a room next door behind a cider block wall I was able to connect 70 plus devices while streaming a video. The Meraki was a different story while in the same room it stopped allowing connection of clients after 30 devices. Probably another thing that through me off was the Meraki push of the dashboard instead of the APs. Both Dashboards are pretty similar and the only feature I like what Meraki does is the SSID scheduling otherwise I can do most if not more with HiveManager NG, which is their cloud version. Aerohive's newest APs I can go dual 5GHz which helps with density and increased client connections.
