"It's a pretty good value, but not great. Pricing is on a yearly basis for the Meraki solution.""The price is good, but it could be improved.""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 pricing is based on a subscription and is a bit high at the moment.""This solution is quite costly and there are costs in addition to the licensing fees.""This solution is slightly more expensive than others, such as Ruckus Wi-Fi.""It's not super expensive and it's not super cheap.""The cost is not so much for Wireless LAN, but when you have to get the security license, it costs a lot."
