What is most valuable?

There are a lot of valuable features and functions. One example is CleanAir to detect and troubleshoot interference issues. Another is RX-SOP to optimize roaming.

What needs improvement?

The web interface for Cisco controllers could be better. It could be more user-friendly. Sometimes I have to remember how to access some functionalities or how to enable or execute some functions. If… more »

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

This product's pricing is good. It's not too expensive. Whether the pricing is a good value depends on the product. I was looking for some Cisco products and found that some are expensive, like the… more »

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

I moved to Cisco because it's a solution that many companies use. I already had experience with Cisco routers and switches, so it was easier to configure and to manage Cisco products.

What other advice do I have?

I started first with the 1440, without a wireless controller in an autonomous access point. Two years after that, I moved to the 2504 Wireless Controller - a 40-access-point deployment. The next year… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The Guest feature is pretty good.

How has it helped my organization?

Having Cisco switches in the network also benefits the wireless. Having both in the same network has advantages in regards to compatibilities. It's also pretty easy to get it up and running in a short time, so that's a big advantage. Having the same vendor, Cisco, for switches and wireless, we can… more »

What needs improvement?

Sometimes I've seen some issues come up with the interference. That's an issue users face at times. It becomes very complex when you have a lot of wireless interference in the area, or in your office. It's because of the environment of Cisco. Maybe, in the future, they can work on this area, and fix… more »

What other advice do I have?

Cisco wireless is a pretty good product. I would definitely recommend buying it. If you are looking for a wireless solution I would definitely recommend going with Cisco Wireless. I rate Cisco Wireless at about eight out of 10. It's pretty good, it's very compatible with other Cisco products.

What is most valuable?

The main features are that it's secure and it's easy to distribute the SSID and control it. I also like the controller.

What needs improvement?

There is a problem with the controller. When we have to restart the controller, it does not show the time. We have to manually configure the time when we restart it. I have read about this issue, to get some information, and all answers are… more »

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

It's good to compare pricing, but it's Cisco and I trust Cisco.

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

We were using another option. It was not professional, something like D-Link. We had to configure each router separately. That's why we use Cisco, because I like the controller. There is a company here, a Cisco partner or distributor. They… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would strongly advise any company, but especially in business, to use this wireless solution. I rate Cisco Wireless at nine out of 10 because, as I said, I like the performance, stability, the easy implementation and the controller. There… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the coverage. Also, the management provides the most important security features in these devices.

What needs improvement?

The GUI could be made more user-friendly. There should also be a dashboard where it can showcase how many end-users are connected to a particular access point.

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

I feel the product's pricing is a good value.

What other advice do I have?

When implementing this solution, you require the right partner to be in place to support it, that is the first requirement. I would rate this solution at nine out of 10. The best part of the solution is the stability. Also, the easy usage… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate anything else because Cisco is a brand name for networking devices.

What is most valuable?

Authentication is the important feature for us.

How has it helped my organization?

Since we have a central server from which our authentication is run, a user who comes from, let's say, California, doesn't have to ask any for credentials. He just comes to my network, logs in with… more »

What needs improvement?

There are certain features which I would want which are not there. There is always a wish list, that my WiFi should give me one, two, three, four, five. Certain things come, certain things don't, and… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is its security. Cisco is very well known for security.

How has it helped my organization?

We don't have to use cables anymore and it gives us a variety of connections. We can do video conferencing and web conferencing, so it has been great.

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

The pricing is high. It could be cheaper. Cisco is known for its high pricing.

What other advice do I have?

Security and support are important factors when looking at this kind of solution. Cisco is more expensive but you have to compare the security and support you are getting. The support, in particular, is very critical, especially if you are in a conference call and the sound breaks off. You need them… more »

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

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

The coverage range is far superior to the model that we were using.

How has it helped my organization?

It give us scalability, integrated enterprise security and guest access, it's self-configuring, plug-and-play deployment. It’s allowed us to deploy a wide range of wireless products, with industry-class WiFi that’s stable and able to grow with our needs.

What needs improvement?

Cost. Also, it is slow to update configurations, with cloud access, no way to configure devices locally, network data information is hard to find.

What other advice do I have?

The device works very well and distributes a good signal across the four sites. Overall, during my brief use of the Meraki MR33, I feel like I have barely scratched the surface of its features. Deploying a full Meraki system provides even more features, allowing you to break down the network and… more »

What is most valuable?

The detail in the controller is hard to beat.

How has it helped my organization?

We have wireless in nearly every inch of our building for voice and data access. We can deploy our network anywhere we need it to be. It works very well. Our environment as a powder metal manufacturer makes WiFi very hard. It is like a rain storm and headlights. Cisco’s product has made a big difference in our plants.

What needs improvement?

Always getting the latest and great is important to me. I think as long as they keep staying on top of their product it will be a good thing. No major issues other than the fact that it is not the easiest to use without experience. If you need a simpler setup, look at Meraki.
