Cisco Meraki Wireless Access Point

Great for companies with limited IT support. Could be a problem for large organizations with extended security measures.

Cons

  • By far, the biggest issue (not necessarily specific to Wireless) is with VPN connections. Meraki is great at setting up and managing VPNs to Meraki peers but lacks basic and vital functionality when it comes to non-Meraki peers. I realize this is a function of the firewall, but for organizations looking at Meraki as a potential enterprise network solution, this should be a consideration.
  • Specifically related to Wireless WAN, we really have no reservations concerning functionality.
  • Meraki has always been expensive (with recurring licensing costs). However, since the acquisition by Cisco, this has multiplied.

Alternatives Considered

Meraki's dashboard is what sets it apart. This allows configuration and modification to be done on the fly from any location. The UI is extremely intuitive. It offers extensive tools compared to other mesh network providers such as Ubiquiti or Google Wi-Fi.

Return on Investment

  • Meraki has made managing and securing our wireless network an easy task.
  • Re-configuring the network is simple.
  • But it does come at a high monetary cost. Additionally, moving to another solution becomes increasingly difficult to justify.
