Cisco Meraki MG smplifies the route to wireless WAN connectivity and makes cellular a really good uplink option for many networks. MG21 can be used best as gateway to cellular networks, by converting LTE signal from a cellular provider to an ethernet handoff, which can be used as an internet uplink for a variety of use-cases.

I love the equipment for small-scale commercial solutions and quality without the price tag. I might not recommend their products for a large organization with multiple locations and servers. However, the GUI interface will allow remote access and setup across the network. I think this is a great solution for small businesses and families or home office solutions, provided there is some IT knowledge for setup and maintenance.

Cons

Cisco

  • A DHCP configuration would be fine, but a fixed IP configuration seems to require a twist in the configuration.
  • If possible, it's just a subscription. With no initials and just a subscription, I think it's a "feature product" that may convince the superior even if the price is a bit high.
  • I am happy with wireless and all in one, but I feel that the management screen is old, so I think it is better to renew it a bit more.

  • Supply can be a problem, especially for new products. We have had to sometimes wait for months for supply to come in.
  • No phone support. Only email/chat. can be frustrating sometimes just texting someone, but have not had to contact them very often.

      The combination of performance, range, low-power use, and manageability made it ideal for us.

      We have not needed to contact support, except to replace one device that was damaged in shipping. The company immediately issued an RMA without delay, and we had our replacement product within a week

      Alternatives Considered

      Although both products come from the same family, there are drastic differences between them. When it comes to the MX, it's all about security. It might not perform like the latter, but the security it provides is really good. It is a good enterprise WAN Solution, but still, the Meraki MG beats it in overall performance & ease of use. And the MX sadly doesn't support cellular connectivity.

      Prior to this, we used Cisco Meraki wireless access points, which did not allow for centralized control, therefore several access points shared the same SSID. Because the client's movement from one device to another was not as seamless and reliable as it is with the current Ubiquiti solution, this shift cost both time and stability during configuration.

      I really think that Cisco Meraki MG is an excellent product that can be used in any part of the organization when you need a backup uplink solution. As it is managed from the Meraki Cloud it is easy to integrate with your enterprise and any other platform you have in.

      Return on Investment

      Cisco

      • The ROI is excellent, over time we have been able to avoid outages even though our WAN provider may have had issues, the switch to LTE via Cisco Meraki MGwas smooth
      • in locations where traditional lan links were not feasible, like mobile locations, this has been a saver
      • they can be placed where mobile phone reception is best without LAN

      • The cost of the equipment vs. my uptime is streets ahead of typical consumer equipment.
      • Adding additional AP's is extremely easy and little to no downtime for setup.
      • Transition between Unifi and Edge equipment can be a little clunky but it works.
