Let's face it, Cisco Meraki offers a solution that is not inexpensive when compared to some other WiFi, switching and security vendor's offerings. We are often asked why it attracts this price premium. Here are the key features that count towards its supreme value for use in many organisations.
Scalable Controllerless Architecture - Meraki's cloud managed model means there are no expensive WLAN controllers required. The Cloud dashboard is infinitely scalable to properly manage hundreds of devices across multiple networks.
Ease of Management - Meraki solutions are the easiest to deploy and manage. Just configure your whole network in the Dashboard, send the devices to a site and plug them in - without the need for a highly specialised network engineer on staff.
Deep network visibility - Layer 7 visibility and management for fine-grained control over how network bandwidth is used, which clients are accessing the network and what they are looking at.
Bulletproof security - Fully PCI compliant architecture, internal firewall, intrusion prevention, network anti-malware, and anti-virus, automatic rogue AP detection and isolation.
High-density support - Automatically optimises and delivers superior performance in high-density wireless environments under intense interference conditions. Ability to configure multiple SSIDs for specific uses at a site each with a different policy.
Remote Support and Live Troubleshooting - Ethernet cable testing, event logs, and live packet captures right from the dashboard. Ping a printer to see if its online, see what is happening with your Internet connection in real time.
Mobility management - Systems Manager is the only solution that provides unified management of mobile devices, Macs, PCs, and the entire network from a centralised dashboard. Automate device onboarding, deploy apps, and enforce security restrictions easily.
