We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Meraki solutions come with a choice of several different subscription options including one year, three years, five years, seven years, and ten years."
"The licensing fees are approximately $1,000 USD annually."
"The pricing is fair, but if they can make it less it would be even more attractive."
"Any license you buy until January 2021 gets you an extra year for that purchase."
"like everything else, it's negotiable."
"If you purchase a Meeraki box, you have to purchase a license, and it's already the basic license, you will have you SD-WAN included."
"This solution is more expensive than competitors."
