No downtime, no breakdowns, all the user readings are exact, and it gives us quick analysis so we can apply security measures

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for the product is as an enterprise mobility management solution to give access to users that are connecting to the network on wired and wireless devices.

Pros and Cons

  • "We experience no downtime, no breakdowns, all the user readings are exact, and it gives us quick analysis so we can apply security measures."
  • "Because Cisco has improved a lot and is competing with other technologies that are innovative and brand new to the market, the only improvements they have to make are to keep up with the current competition and remain competitive with other solutions."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a nine out of ten.

The ease of use and setup are most valuable to us. We have come across issues where it doesn't seem to be able to establish some VPN tunnels with other devices.

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for MDM (Mobile Device Management), as a firewall and using it for their switches and access points.

Pros and Cons

  • "We use this solution for MDM."
  • "It's a very easy solution for the most part, it's very easy to implement and very easy to administer."
  • "It's extremely competitive and very good for a product in this sphere."
  • "It doesn't seem to be able to establish some VPN tunnels with other devices in a particular way that such as an ASA can do for us."

What other advice do I have?

Generally speaking, if it's just a mesh network within your own environment, which could be done at a fairly low knowledge level. It's when you're dealing with the external partners and stuff like that that you'll either have to really know what you're talking about to try and troubleshoot. It's a very easy solution for the most part, it's very easy to implement and very easy to administer.

The web portal provides status reporting and ease of configuration

What is our primary use case?

We use it in a restaurant environment to provide a managed firewall and WiFi. This is very helpful. One of our largest support call issues is the processing of credit cards. This is caused by an Internet/network issue 60 percent of the time. Knowing the state of the network remotely is a big time saver. Having the ability to alter the network and WiFi settings remotely permits us to have quick response time. For overall troubleshooting, having tools on Meraki is a time saver.

How has it helped my organization?

We can quickly see if the Internet is up or down, then focus troubleshooting more quickly.  We can reconfigure a client’s setup remotely with minimal effort.

What is most valuable?

Web portal: Ease of configuration and status reporting.…
