  • The cloud part where you can manage them through that. Absolutely love it. You don't have to know the code behind doing a 3850 or anything of that case like that, where you have to go in into a putty session and you got to know all the codes and stuff like that. This is just so click and it's gooey based and awesome.
  • It's a possibility, but I don't know because we haven't gone down that road yet for our division, but incorporating the older Cisco equipment into the Cisco Meraki Cloud and stuff, I know that I was told that we could do that. We haven't done it yet. I just don't know what products it can be done with. That would be cool. It makes it obviously much easier to manage too.

  • It's cloud based, so as long as we have an internet connection, we can access it. Whenever we push a change, it's one stop like a single pane of glass to manage all our equipment. And so that's what I liked about it.
  • I would think the buffering time as far as when you push out, so it's kind of almost contradicting how I like the access of the cloud to push the configurations out, but it takes some time for the configurations to really kind of take in effect. And so you have to constantly refresh the browser and eventually it takes in effect, but it does take a little, there is some lag time there.

  • First of all, it's easy to use, easy to set up, maintain. The interface for Cisco Meraki systems is very intuitive. The tools are right at the tip of your fingers, so you're not spending a lot of time trying to dive into multiple points to find where there's an issue. It's really quick and easy to find those things that you're looking for when you're trying to troubleshoot.
  • I feel like probably just more integration with the Cisco line of things. I'm really hoping that they'll eventually bring it more into the Cisco Catalyst Center software for management, troubleshooting and stuff like that.

  • Sometimes we'll have users state that a certain device in a plant just doesn't connect to YF, well constantly disconnecting, they can't get an application to run. What's great is with this product, you can type in the Mac address or some sort of identifying information, and the Meraki dashboard with the MR series will give you the entire history. You can go up back to a full week's worth of data and it'll show you all the connections, the drops, what was the reason for the drop, the health of the device, etcetera. So you can start narrowing down what needs to be done to address the problem.
  • Our current series doesn't have the GPS Telemetry for auto placement on maps that is coming out, I believe in future models, but we're not there yet. I believe they're trying to make them backwards compatible. So there is a lot of manual places on the map. Make sure you get it in the right location because that can determine its ability to locate your clients in the building.
  • And then I would say the other thing that they probably just need to work on a bit is a bit more of the RF management, the ability to see how is that AP broadcasting compared to others.

  • Especially in areas where there's a lot of congestion. It's AI functionality, auto channeling features are better than most other aps that I've seen in the market, especially in Chicago and New York. So areas where there's a lot of other access points, other conflicting signals, the product just works essentially.
  • I would look at the alerting most likely, probably adding more to it, more things that it can alert on, more proactive when there's other issues in the environment, but overall it's a good product.

  • Fast and easy AP onboarding
  • Floor plan and AP placement integration with tools like Ekahau and Hamina
  • Intuitive interface to configure and support WLAN
  • Faster boot time
  • Full access to all APIs
  • Tightest AI integration to bubble issues and resolution to main screen versus simply displaying dashboards that I have to drill through

  • Management- Profiles and templates are easy to deploy
  • Reliability- the up time for these APs (outside expected firmware updates) is class leading in my opinion
  • Transparency- we are able to quickly gather metrics on the RF environment to properly identify potential issues and maintain a positive UX
  • Licensing- unfortunately this is the big sticking point for Meraki, is licensing can get costly. You're now adding opex to what most vendors is capex.
