Great for a large range of businesses

Overall we are pleased with our Meraki purchase and installation. We used a system integrator to obtain it but looking back we could have saved some money doing it ourselves but the quick onboarding and initial setup by the integrator ensured we got running quickly

Pros

Meraki is a cloud based product that controls on premises and remote hardware. The hardware is top of the line and includes all the functions you would expect from an exterprise offering. Given the broad number of options and the cloud based always updating nature of this product if fill many needs and be adopted by most organizations.

Cons

Some of the navigation takes some getting used to and I wish it would flow more but there are so many features that building a fluid navigation gets tough, even for Cisco. The graphing could also be better and offer additional options when you need more details but generally it will fill most needs.

Reasons for switching to Cisco Meraki

We had performance issues with VOIP on our previous product and we could not solve it. With Meraki it was a non issue and everything just worked.

Meraki for MDM and Wireless

Overall we're very happy. Deployments are easy and not having to support controllers has been helpful, although controller based systems do have their advantages. MDM has helped us maintain better control and tracking over our mobile assets.

Pros

the ease of use is great. Deployment is straight forward for Meraki devices. MDM management is not extremely intuitive, but in fairness this is our first MDM product. Consoles are easy to navigate. For the price it is an effective product.

Cons

Licensing is a bit confusing, Menu in the management console could use a little improvement, more streamlined, reporting is very lacking.

Reasons for choosing Cisco Meraki

Best price point, met all requirements

Lots of promise but not enough focus on the core

This software has great promise as an MDM solution but it lags behind other solutions. If you’re looking for free and iOS/Android this is for you. If you want to manage computers you may want to consider looking elsewhere. Systems Manager doesn’t scale well and provide advanced features.

Pros

This is a beautiful MDM solution that supports all platforms which is great. There are some features not found elsewhere that make it easy to integrate security functionality with Meraki’s networking stack. Want WPA2 enterprise with TLS? Systems manager makes this seamless.

Cons

Feature set prioritizes integration with Meraki stack. Features introduced by Apple or Microsoft at the OS level can take months if not years to finally be implemented. This can cause quite a lag as your user base upgrades. No real features to manage the patch level of devices aside from manually pushing updates each time. Licensing cost fluctuates frequently (it’s free, it’s paid, it’s mostly free but sometimes paid).

Network Configuration with a click of a button

We have managed. To reduce travelling cost where at times we would travel to remote offices for configurations. Now this can be done remotely. The organisation realised a lot of savings

Pros

Meraki is easy to deploy and easy to configure. You can configure devices for different offices remotely. You can configure the devices even if the other devices are offline. You do not need to run commands. All configurations are done by click of a button. They can work as hybrid system working with non meraki devices

Cons

The Meraki equipment usually takes long to be delivered. Cisco needs to increase production so that customers won't have to wait for ages for the equipment to be delivered.

Reasons for choosing Cisco Meraki

This was a partnership decision

Reasons for switching to Cisco Meraki

Moving with technology. Adopting new age technology
