Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN Review

We can use a single dashboard to manage our 5 offices in different parts of the world.


What is most valuable?

  • Centralized management
  • Easily configurable

How has it helped my organization?

We implemented Meraki APs across our 5 offices in USA, UK, and India, and we can manage all of them from one dashboard. We have great metrics for bandwidth usage, easily finding out who is downloading movies. ;-)

Using Radius server for user authentication is very simple to configure, creating new SSID, and it has a great alerting system.

For how long have I used the solution?

2 years

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Deployment is very simple- just add the device to your dashboard, connect to the network, and it will automatically connect, update firmware, and update configuration to match with your others APs.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Nope

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

10

Technical Support:

10, to get help you can open the case or just call them directly, give them your customer ID and boom, you are talking to the tech who can see all your devices.

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

Aruba, Ruckus - they are ok, but you need to spend more time to configure and their support is not even close to Meraki.

How was the initial setup?

Can't be more simple

What about the implementation team?

In-house

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

I think the Meraki APs are very cheap, I am using them even at home.

What other advice do I have?

Don't waste time and money for the other solutions, only Meraki!
