With Meraki, there is the advantage that you have dashboard access via the internet and you can work on it from anywhere.

Setting up a switch can be performed prior to having your hands on the device. Once you purchase a Meraki switch you will get an email from Meraki with a code to add to your dashboard and then you can start setting up your switch so when it arrives it will download its configuration and be all setup.

It is easy to deploy, maintain, and update. It has been trouble-free so far. I am still a Cisco command-line bigot, but the web interface makes it a lot easier for our help desk to interact with a client. When the clients call in and say that they aren't able to connect, it takes the help desk 10 minutes or less to look at everything in the enterprise or location. They can look at the firewall, switches, or access points in the dashboard. That's why I like the dashboard.

The most valuable feature about Meraki is the console. The second most valuable feature, to me, is the technical support and the infrastructure behind the console.

Being able to look at every port and see what it is connected to is very useful. Everything seems to be running really well. They've got everything covered. They have a really cool mounting system at the bottom and an access point that you can use to level up your device. It is kind of cool.

Communication of compliance risk is awkward at best and threatening at worst. It needs to be addressed.

In terms of troubleshooting, if we get more tools there is an issue.

Meraki MS switches are great for pretty much all SMB networks and most enterprise networks. However, there are some higher-end functions that larger enterprise networks with full access, distribution, and core switch stack may find limiting.

We had some dashboard licensing issues, maybe because their method of collecting data from the user needs to be more streamlined.

The firewall is not very powerful. The other week, one of the switches only gave one gigabit of output. It's become a concern for our customers.

It would be good to include the command-line access someday.

The biggest area that they fall short on is comparing the performance.

It would be great if they can get the price down for small businesses.

This product depends on a cloud connection in order to function. If you have an unstable internet connection or other connectivity issues the product will not function as expected.
