Traffic analytics give us insight and the management and upgrades are very simple and straightforward
Find out what your peers are saying about Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN vs. Mojo Networks and other solutions. Updated: September 2019.
366,486 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The management and upgrades are very simple and straightforward.
Its ability to be cloud-managed is the most valuable feature so if there's a reconfiguration or an issue, we have excellent visibility into the network and we can usually resolve the problem online without having to go onsite.
It improved the installation time.
This product has allowed us to easily create custom SSIDs for clients and carve out the necessary bandwidth for clients needs.
I really love their cloud-based dashboard which allows me to see all my locations from one location.
It will allow me to integrate another system very quickly, as we continue expanding for our client.
It has good security with its Layer 7 protections.
The most important feature is ease of use. We can simply take an access point and plug it in, then it is automatically configured for us.
For support, we do not have to deal with a whole phone menu tree. You get to talk to an engineer right away.
We can see what the network is being used for or where problems may be.
We have found Mojo to be critical for us because of its patented security and its wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS). It is unique in the market.
It has given us a huge leg-up when competing with other managed service providers who use different vendors because of the visibility it gives us to customers' traffic for troubleshooting purposes.
Their Cognitive WiFi analytics (Mojo Aware) is the biggest feature on their dashboard. It helps us know where the problem, so we don't have to spend time with the customer diagnosing it.
Built-in guest analytics and advanced guest portal features allow our customers to create a guest experience which is typically only available with complex and expensive third-party software.
The cloud-based architecture of the controller is valuable because it obviously saves on my hardware costs.
Technical support can be improved, as well as having more detailed capabilities to go without using an API.
The logging sometimes doesn't give us the granularity needed. Some of the rules are a bit more complicated. The switch ports on the routers are not individually addressable, in the sense that with a switch you can tell what MAC address is on what port but with the security appliances, you can't, which would be beneficial for troubleshooting.
It's performing well, really well. We don't have any issues. We only have issues if there is a lot of rogue APs in the neighborhood and that not Meraki's fault.
if there is a better feature, they write it as beta so you have to be careful.
I would like to see them improve their support where an assigned engineer can take the case all the way to closure. Usually, you get a different engineer calling regarding the same ticket.
The user interface could use improvement, and Mojo is working on it. The features and functions are in two different places, and they are in the process of moving them into one place.
Further expanding the API and access to even more diagnostics, as I have found a few limitations when I am dealing with them right now.
They could use more additional application security and network security features. They could add on to the WiFi as a selling point. It would be nice to be able to say to the WiFi users, "We will protect you against viruses and malware, so you don't have to purchase that."
Needs greater simplicity in the management portal. Currently, the Mojo portal presents different “apps” to configure the devices, create splash pages, configure security settings, and monitor the network. This can be confusing, although Mojo has made great strides in combining these into “Aware”.
The RF signalling and data analytics parts should be improved.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It's a pretty good value, but not great. Pricing is on a yearly basis for the Meraki solution.
The price is negotiable.
At this price point, I would not mind seeing a four-way channel, instead of a 3x3 or a 4x4, like they do in the Cisco Aironet system with their other brand. For the same price point in this other Cisco brand, it is a lot cheaper, and you can get a slightly better throughput than you can with these.
If you are wondering if Meraki can work for you, contact one of their representatives because they will do onsite trials where you can set up their system. If it does not work, you can send it back to them for no charge.
The pricing was a good value and substantially less than some of the other products that we looked at. In some cases, with some of the big names, this product was even close to half the price.
The license is provided per access point, so you buy an access point and you use it.
They have been a great price competitor against some of the other big brands, like Meraki, especially for cloud-based WiFi. However, Meraki has been more expensive. They beat Meraki on features for the WiFi, which makes them a better choice even if the price is the same.
There are other solutions, like Ubiquiti, that have lowered their prices, which sometimes makes the argument to go with them. However, we do not bake in the WiFi for other vendors into our managed services, because they do not meet our standard offering.
Pricing includes the planning tools, management, security, analytics, and advanced guest WiFi capabilities. It's always better to buy the longest term available for the best ROI. However, device will continue to function without valid cloud license.
Of every solution we looked at, every wireless solution, Mojo was a minimum of six figures cheaper. Minimum. Most of them were double, which again is unheard of. Not only do you get all the feature benefits, like everything is there, everything just works, but at the same time, it was a no-brainer, because of the cost. It's almost like you hit the lottery.
