Researched Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN but chose Mojo Networks: Simple to use with good stability and scalability
Find out what your peers are saying about Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN vs. Mojo Networks and other solutions. Updated: January 2020.
399,540 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:
It's simple to manage when there's a problem.
Cisco's technical support is very good and better than other vendors.
The most amazing part is that their Access Points have the ability to connect to multiple conference devices at different times, and it shows you the very in-depth Wi-Fi analytics through their dashboard.
The solution is easily scalable. There are not really any limits for the customer in terms of expanding if they need to.
The most valuable feature is the stability. It works and doesn't stop.
We can deploy it and check in on our customers without having an on-site connection or an on-site infrastructure for elderly customers.
The most valuable features are the management tools, including monitoring and reporting.
The flexibility, since it's a cloud service, is the most valuable feature of this solution.
The stability of the solution has been good. We haven't had any issues.
The fact that they are autonomous and can function even without access to the management panel is the most valuable aspect of this solution.
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.
It could be slightly cheaper but it's fine.
In the next release, I would like to see a third-party high tech center to connect multiple users to a particular network.
We would like to see Wi-Fi 6 support for devices sold in the Middle East.
Meraki should share their viability roadmap. It is really hard to know which functionality will appear or when they will be available. It is also hard to know which features are available now but are not visible on the dashboard.
I'd like better integration with security providers.
The technical support for Meraki needs improvements made to the waiting times.
In the future, I would like to see IP telephony in Saudi Arabia.
There is only one particular thing that needs improvement. Sometimes, for example, when you need to open a ticket, although it's under the umbrella of Cisco, you still need to go to the Meraki support.
The solution is a bit pricier than Cisco.
The user interface needs improvement. It could be a little bit more user-friendly.
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
You have to renew your contract every year, or for three or for five years. If you do not pay right away they will suspend your subscription.
The price is good, but it could be improved.
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.
In Australian dollars, we buy it for five years at $1,200.
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.
