Meraki SD-WAN Room for Improvement

Jóhann G Thorarensen
IT Manager at Sund Upper Secondary School
Because I have not been using the product for very long, I'm really just learning it and being overwhelmed by the amount of information that I can actually get from the system. There is really nothing that I can think of at the moment that needs to be improved. I'm just really happy about basically everything. It might happen that something will become important sometime as we get more used to the product and we are able to look into it better. But for the moment it seems to cover everything we need. Possibly there may be more options for integration between computers, projectors, television — sort of being able to more easily make everything included in one solution. It would be even more useful. View full review »

The port density should be improved because this solution is limited to two. We are getting more and more use cases where clients have more than two internet connections and require more than two ports. There should be three or four ports. It is possible to work around this limitation by using a layer two switch, but it does not provide the same flexibility as the statically assigned port. The price of this solution is too high for smaller companies in Africa, where it is the enterprises that can afford it. View full review »

They stopped doing WAN optimization as a feature set, which is now lacking. They need to relook at that and consider WAN optimization as an option. I know that they have improved the security and have taken that off and that to me is critical on the MX. That's where they lack. The reporting needs to be looked at. It needs to be more granular. The reporting on the actual solution isn't what the customers are wanting to get. Scalability could improve to accommodate a larger enterprise. In the next release, I would like to see the WAN optimization. View full review »

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. With HP you have the CLI, but with Meraki, there is no CLI and I find it a little bit annoying because you always have to work with the interface. In this regard, the interface could be improved. Being able to log in remotely via SSL and access a CLI would be helpful because I prefer the CLI over a graphical interface. View full review »

The security of the solution needs to be improved. The adoption of endpoint services or endpoint security should be developed in future releases. View full review »

I think that it is the right time to research features such as IPsec IKEv2 and SSL decryption. I would like a faster installation time in the next release. It should be easier to install BGP and it should have a better backup. View full review »

The solution needs a multi-use provider portal. I'm not on the technical side, so I don't know if there is an area of the solution that needs improvement. There is a wish button in the product, and we're fine with that. The pricing could be a bit lower. View full review »
