We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The solution has many features available.""Because it's a cloud-based network infrastructure, everything is done in the cloud, so I don't need to be on-site physically to be able to troubleshoot or resolve an issue. I can be anywhere and resolve an issue.""This product has a simple configuration that can be accessed through a web interface or the API.""The solution is very stable.""The most interesting feature is the amount of information you can get from overseeing the system from a centralized place.""The advantage you have with Cisco Meraki is that they take a lot of that complexity out of the backend.""I can manage it very well and in a very easy way.""I have found the dashboard very useful, you can configure all of your devices at the same time by just changing some menus."

More Meraki SD-WAN Pros »

"One of the most valuable features of this solution is network management. The customer is able to manage their network from home or we can also manage the whole customer network.""It has good reporting and analytics, that most people can understand without too much difficulty."

More Nuage Networks Pros »

"Overall, we are satisfied with the support, although I cannot state this unequivocally.""The security and upgrading could improve in this solution.""It should be easier to install BGP and it should have a better backup.""When there is an issue, I find it difficult to figure out what is going wrong because the logs do not provide as much information as solutions from HP.""I think they should enhance the security.""We'd like features that provide more transparency when there are issues. Right now, it's hard to get clarity on problems. We need more visibility.""Warm spare is a good failover solution but Meraki could do something more to handle failovers better.""There are literally things you cannot do at this point in a graphical user interface that can be done from a command line."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"like everything else, it's negotiable.""Meraki solutions come with a choice of several different subscription options including one year, three years, five years, seven years, and ten years.""From the perspective of the customer, the price is not terribly cost-effective.""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.""Any license you buy until January 2021 gets you an extra year for that purchase.""The licensing fees are approximately $1,000 USD annually.""This solution is more expensive than competitors.""The pricing is fair, but if they can make it less it would be even more attractive."

"The price of the solution could be more affordable. Customers want to use their own cheap connection and also do not want to pay too much for services from this solution, it becomes too expensive.""I would say, from our cost perspective, they are extremely competitive."
