Compare to the Cisco Aironet 2800 serie there is not a really big difference. The 3800 is more powerful.
Regarding the Meraki access points the solution is really different than the Cisco Aironet 3800.
Both are good but are maybe better in some situations.
For office only or when there are a lot a small sites with not technical contact, I would recommand Cisco Meraki.
For bigger sites or more complex environement, I would prefer a more customizable solution like Aironet which is more powerful.
For sure, it is really better to have only one solution and not a mix so a choice may be done.

Compared in a matter of hardware support and functionalities such as the amount of special flow that each model has 2x2, 2x3, 3x3 4x4 etc. From this, the maximum connection speeds are derived from the 20, 40, 80 or 160 MHz channel width support that also influences the maximum connection layers of a client, the technologies that handle 802.11a / b / g / n radios / ac MIMO or MU-MIMO features serving one user or multiple users at the same time etc.

Select the AP model according to the use of the website that handles concurrent users, etc., according to the recommendation of the expert engineer after having done an analysis of the site. And also for the cost.

Our selection of Cisco Aironet Access Points versus the Meraki Access Points was entirely on a political basis with our vendor. In the future, we are actually looking to migrate towards the Meraki system. Even though the Meraki feature-set is lacking, we really only require those features, and our cost would be largely cut by this migration. It would be a solid win, but maybe not recommendable to everyone.

Ubiquiti also provides pretty good wireless coverage for a much cheaper cost, but they do not offer the support and level of management that Cisco provides. I used Meraki before it was purchased by Cisco, and at the time, it also did not have quite as good of coverage, but the ease of use and no on-site controller to purchase does make it a good option for smaller companies or those with many smaller locations/branches. It does come with a substantial subscription fee that is required for the devices to function.

  • Aruba Networks Wireless LAN (WLAN)
We compared Cisco Acess Point to Aruba and while we found benefits in both, the biggest advantage for us was the fact that we were already an existing Cisco shop and the learning curve to implement Aruba access points over Cisco would have been too costly and time-consuming.

The Cisco wireless APs are amazing. They provide great density and performance as well. When combined with use and the Cisco DNA Center, you get a really dynamic environment that enables mobility seamlessly. Other vendors have parts of these solutions, but not like the Cisco solution. They also offer very strong controllers for many architectures.

  • Aruba Networks Wireless LAN (WLAN)
Cisco offers much better client support and management than Aruba. We have not used Aruba in over 8 years though, so they likely have improved their management interface.

Some alternative options were considered and PoC was carried out during the procurement process. Our experience and evaluation basically proved Cisco had the upper hand due to its integration capabilities with other components of the network, such as switching, Routers, Firewalls and our third party internet payment gateway. We have also used EnGenius APs for point to point connections in bridge mode, but again, with security being the main concern, nothing beats Cisco.

Why we ended up with Cisco Access Points is purely the overall architecture and capabilities they provide. As we are using Cisco Identity Service Engine with identity-based enterprise networking, the Aironet Access Points just fit like a glove. And do not forget the added value features that they come with such as built-in location awareness capabilities, flexible radios etc.

Compared to Motorola/Symbol - it is easier to manage and scale the solution. Using the controllers one can build up avWiFi network to spread access to new building using only a few clicks. There is also functionality to build a mesh network with APs communicating with each other over radio.

  • Aruba Networks Wireless
Aruba is also well known but Cisco products, I feel, are more reliable and its features are uniquely designed. The support team of Cisco is more proactive when compared to Aruba. Cisco has been in the market for a long time and it has the potential to change the wireless technology completely with their research and development.

Cisco created a new category with this solution, simply does not have competition at the level of its technology and performance.

The HP and Avaya management tools look like child's play compared to a Cisco wireless controller. There are clearly features to suit everyone's needs with a Cisco WLC.
