Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN Review

Easy to use, straightforward to set up, and very stable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for our campus environment.

What is most valuable?

The solution has worked very well in our campus environment. 

The solution has proven itself to be very stable so far.

The product is very easy to use.

The initial setup is very straightforward and easy.

We've found the connectivity to be excellent.

What needs improvement?

We would like the solution to work on the pricing of the solution. It would be ideal if it could bring the overall costs down.

For how long have I used the solution?

We haven't even used the solution for a year yet. We've used it for about six months or so. It hasn't been that long just yet.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very good. There are no bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. It's reliable. It's been good so far.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution can scale quite well. If a company needs to expand it, it can do so fairly easily.

We currently use the solution in order to cover 500 users at our company.

Our company does plan to increase usage in the future.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has been fine. We've found them to be helpful and responsive. We're satisfied with the level of support we receive.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was very straightforward, from what I recall. A company shouldn't have any trouble with the initial setup. It's not overly complex or difficult. 

The deployment is pretty fast. It only took us about two hours or so. 

What about the implementation team?

We did not need the assistance of a consultant or integrator. We handled the initial implementation ourselves. We handled it in-house.

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

The pricing could be cheaper. It's the one pain point.

We pay a monthly fee.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the latest version of the solution. I can't speak to the actual version number.

I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten. We haven't used it for that long, however, we have been quite satisfied with its overall capabilities.

I'd recommend the solution to other organizations and users.
