Most Helpful Review
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 solution is easy to use and offers good management for wireless.
The deployment access in the local system is about 200 access points. External access points is more. The number is huge. There about 1,000 users in total.
The feature I like most, is the product activity.
The performance of this solution is amazing in terms of radiofrequency technology.
I made some comparisons with other competitors and I found that Ruckus was number one in regards to stability.
The analytic solution is good and should be improving further.
The performance is very nice, the throughput is better than any other product, and it's reliable.
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 could use a better user interface.
The support could be faster. It takes time for them to reply.
I would like to see built-in Wi-Fi.
The captive portal should be more customizable because right now, it is very limited.
I have some friends who have not heard of Ruckus, but are aware of other competitors.
This product needs a point-to-point, bridge solution.
The pricing needs to be reconsidered because it's expensive.
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.
This solution offers a yearly subscription. The price is not high, other solutions are much higher than Ruckus.
The solution is a little pricey, so customers sometimes select other products because of the price.
