Meraki SD-WAN Review

A stable product with application awareness that is straightforward to set up and use

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our customers. It allows our users to have their main LAN on the internet.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is application awareness.

What needs improvement?

This solution can only support up to two WAN ports. However, many of our customers would like to have four WAN ports.

This solution comes without NAT support enabled. If you need it, then NAT has to be enabled.

If this solution were cheaper then it would be of interest to smaller companies.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with the Meraki SD-WAN for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no issues in terms of stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable product, although it is most suitable for medium-sized organizations.

How are customer service and technical support?

We can speak with technical support directly but our customers have not had any issues.

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

I am familiar with products from several different vendors. The choice of product depends on several factors, including their budget.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. Just plug and play.

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

We offer this solution to our customers as a more cost-effective alternative to some of the other products. Meraki is considered to be in a medium-range in terms of cost.

The licensing fees are approximately $1,000 USD annually.

What other advice do I have?

For medium-sized and larger enterprises, Meraki is a very good choice.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
