Meraki SD-WAN Review

Good stability, with a straightforward setup, but endpoint security needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use it to provide SD-WAN solutions for our customers.

What is most valuable?

The solution is a whole vertical solution, so it doesn't need any other components in order to provide basic features. 

What needs improvement?

The security of the solution needs to be improved.

The adoption of endpoint services or endpoint security should be developed in future releases.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for five to ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is relatively stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is not scalable for high-end customers. Meraki is really flexible and can start from really small sites, so it's better suited to the SME market. When you reach a situation where you have a high number of sites with a high level of complexity, then Cisco Meraki probably lacks a bit of flexibility.

How are customer service and technical support?

I've never had to reach out to technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward; it's not that complex. How long it takes to deploy depends on the customer's requirements and how complex their infrastructure is.

What about the implementation team?

We're a distributor. We deploy the solution on-premises for our clients.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other options, but we're very happy with Cisco Meraki.

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give to others considering implementing the solution would be to start small and be patient.

I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
