Personally I think Meraki’s SD-WAN is the easiest to manage I’ve ever seen. Also very stable and reliable.

Overall, this is a very good solution. I like products where you can deploy them and then go to sleep because they are watertight. It isn't going to give you headaches from support calls at 3:00 AM from a customer saying that the site is down. I definitely recommend that people look at the advantages of Meraki, and in particular, the Meraki SD-WAN because of the access to the cloud management interface. If you ever had a problem with SD-WAN then you do not have to drive to the corporate head office or use a VPN. You can always access the dashboard from anywhere, as long as you have the required privileges on the portal. The only complaints I have are about the port density and the pricing. They are doing a fantastic job, although there is always room for improvement. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

This is a fine product but there is always room for improvement. It is easy to manage and the user interface tells you when something is wrong, but there is always something that they can develop or integrate. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

My advice to other people considering this as a solution is that I would probably just recommend them the same server and set up that we have. It sort of depends on what the person or the business needs. There are questions about how much control over it that you want to have, how much you really need to be able to oversee everything, et cetera. In terms of security issues, I think it is wonderful to be able to actually see where the pitfalls of our infrastructure are and stuff like that. But my gut feeling is I think I would probably just recommend the same system as we have. But the problem with that is I also don't know how Fortinet works because I haven't tested and implemented it myself. It looked promising when we researched it two years ago. I don't know, maybe it is just as good as Meraki. From what I've seen from comparisons between the two, they seem to be similar in terms of usability and price. I could be mistaken about some of that. But I'm happy with what we have, so I can recommend our system as something that is working for us. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Meraki SD-WAN, Software Defined Networking as an eight given the fact that I've only been working on it this short of time.

We are looking forward to using some of the features that we are currently testing in the beta. Some of these include data suppression options and an IPsec solution with IKEv2. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

The Meraki SD-WAN solution is simple to deploy. You have to plan well and look at creating policies and create your templates prior to the installation. What we found, was that while we were doing the implementation we were doing a lot of work. If we had planned before the actual implementation, then the entire rollout would have been much simpler. The setup is simple but it terms of deployment, it is better to create your policies and the planning needs to be done prior to the actual deployment. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

The advice I would give to others considering implementing the solution would be to start small and be patient. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
