    Cisco

    • There needs to be an easier way to see which devices are being heavier used, so as to determine needed adjustments.
    • It would be good to have more in-depth access to what locations connected devices are navigating to.
    • Cost. These devices could be a little more competitive if the cost were lower. Meraki prices itself out of some sales.

        Cause its intuitive, very clear and easy of use (no brainer) interface. It's whole portfolio in one portal aproach. Also cause the new features cycle release and the cisco Meraki comprehension of WiFi market. Also cause the fastest deployment available on the market that also comes with a easy to scale platform adding features and services in the same interface thats unique and awesome.

        The Cisco Meraki MR web interface is best in class when it comes to network management. While some networking knowledge is needed to understand what you are doing, no specialized training in any one specific operating system is required to design a whole network.

        Meraki support is usually top notch. The are quick to respond and stick with an issue until it is resolved. One of the difficulties I've had with Meraki MRs is the limited ability the customer has in troubleshooting. Much of the more technical aspects of resolution can only be accessed by the Meraki support team, meaning dedicated IT teams are reliant on them when more complicated issues arise.

        Cisco Meraki Stacks give us the ability to implement an entire network and security solution that impacts tremendously in the productivity of our employees, just because we have 1 Dashboard to manage an entire company network and security with ML include an easy-to-use web view. Any other brand in the industries has the ability to merge Switches, Wireless LAN, UTM, MDM, Video Surveillance in one intuitive dashboard HTML or Mobile App.

        • For bigger organizations ROI is really good, because the network is always operational, and no time is spent fixing the network.
        • The users do not need to power cycle devices or do anything else, everything can be managed remotely from the Meraki dashboard.
        • For small businesses with only 1 AP, the ROI is not that great since a cheaper AP can do the same job, and it may need occasional reboot which the staff can do easily without any hassle.
