Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN Review

A reliable cloud-based solution with good support, but its biggest downside is the yearly fee and the initial price

What is our primary use case?

We use it for Wi-Fi.

What is most valuable?

It is cloud-based. You can manage it remotely from anywhere in the world, and you don't have to be on-site, which is a very big advantage.

What needs improvement?

It is super expensive for what you get. I just wish it was less expensive.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for 20 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable and very reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

You just buy more. In terms of the number of users, it is used by everyone in the organization. It is Wi-Fi, so you hook your phone or laptop. Everybody uses it.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is very good. I would rate them a ten out of ten.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I've used Ubiquiti. The reason I use them is that they're very inexpensive, but they're not cloud-based. You have to be on-premises in order to manage them.

How was the initial setup?

It is really easy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is super expensive for what you get. You also have to buy a license every year. Otherwise, it stops working.

What other advice do I have?

If you can afford it, you should go for it.

I would rate Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN a six out of ten. The biggest downside is the yearly fee and the initial price, but it is very reliable.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
