Meraki SD-WAN Review

Fairly-priced, scalable solution

What is most valuable?

The most valuable Meraki SD-WAN features for me are cloud management and Auto VPN. 

What needs improvement?

The product could be improved by being made more simple to use. We had some issues integrating our MPLS with Meraki SD-WAN 

Some features that should be included in the next release are micro-segmentation, ITS-related features, and inspection and detection for anti-malware. 

I also think that they need to improve their hardware. They have some devices that support Wi-Fi, but not LTE and they have some other devices that only support LTE but not Wi-Fi. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Meraki SD-WAN is a very stable solution. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Meraki SD-WAN is a very scalable solution. 

How are customer service and technical support?

In my experience, they have good technical support available. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial Meraki SD-WAN setup is straightforward. Implementing this solution for a client with some 20 branches would take a week or two. 

Two to five people are necessary for the deployment and maintenance of this solution. 

What about the implementation team?

When choosing this solution, our customers most often consider the level of simplicity Meraki SD-WAN provides relative to its price. 

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

I think the price for this solution is fair.
