One of the better times Meraki Go has proven useful was when the Fresno Grizzlies have baseball games, and many people come to our brewery to watch it on our televisions or stream it on their phones. The quick internet service allows us to attract more patrons and also improves their day. Half of the time, people are coming into our bar just to use the internet and end up buying a few drinks! The business had shot up thanks to our switch from when the pandemic started in 2020.

      Support Rating

      Cisco

      It's good, it can be better, but it's good. We had problems with Outlook 365 disconnecting and their support wasn't able to help us. We spent a few hours on the phone and finally, one of our NOC guys decided to change the MTU. I'm sure their support is good, I just think that this time we didn't find the right person.

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      If you are with Cisco classic wireless, which is on premises-based and all your ap are in flex mode, it will be very difficult to manage. And you need extra hardware to get the report for the users. But in Cisco Meraki Go, we will be getting everything in a single dashboard.

      Purple Wifi has a better pricing point compared to the competition. Also, the API integration is overall a smooth process compared to the competition. The direct marketing tools it provides that integrate very well with the Analytics report are a big plus for Purple Wifi. Overall Purple Wifi is easy to use and has reliable tools to manage network and marketing for our organization.

      Scalability

      Cisco

      The ease of deployment can be moved from one site to another easily. There is no need for any source or managing controller and hence it can be easily moved with the same configuration. This type of solution is best for teams who work together and are on the move from one location to another and who rely on high performance and good security for their wifi network.

      Return on Investment

      Cisco

      • Meraki has improved our business and our sales by a lot.
      • Customers are always happy to enter our brewery and have a drink, even more, when their internet works to near perfection.
      • I even catch myself watching an episode or two on netflix during my lunch break, considering the internet can support my 4k streaming.
