  • Equipment is very affordable
  • It does not work without license, which is not cheap
  • Lifetime warranty (understand warranty as long as you pay license and the device is not EOS)
  • Price for the equipment can be reduced by 60% when you buy a lot
  • Price of the licenses can be reduced by 50% if you go with Enterprise agreement licensing

  • Implementing Meraki solutions has allowed us to expand our business opportunities beyond our local footprint.
  • One of our business goals is to reduce customer downtime and Meraki has simplified this process with detailed logging to help identify issues causing customer issues.
  • The cloud Managed interface allows us to manage Meraki products from anywhere. I recall one day when I was a passenger in a vehicle and I was able to restart Meraki devices (while someone else was driving), from my phone.

  • Allowed us to move to less expensive Synchronous Internet connections from private lines.
  • The appliances and licensing for a large number of sites can be expensive.
  • Allows us to let local traffic exit to SaaS Cloud directly instead of through the home site.

  • VPN tunnel between locations has been up 99% of the time in the 7 years that I have used the Cisco Meraki MXs in my current position. That does not include ISP issues because, in my mind, that shouldn't dictate the performance of the Cisco Meraki MXs.
  • Sometimes we get phishing emails with malicious links in them. We are able to block the URLs on our network using the Cisco Meraki MXs, and the appliance configuration sets in less than a minute. Blocking that link for anyone over VPN or on the LAN.
  • The interface is really simple and configuration is a breeze, which makes deploying a new Cisco Meraki MX really fast and easy. Replacing an Cisco Meraki MX is even easier, Just remove the old and add the new and all the configuration stays for the new appliance to use. Saves so much time and money.
  • The biggest thing is we have not had really any issues with any of our Cisco Meraki MXs going down in the past 7 years. The reliability with these devices are amazing.

  • It has dramatically reduced the time and effort associated with monitoring, configuring, and updating my network.
  • The appliance has been rock solid. We've never had an outage that can be attributed to the device.
  • It's fast. VOIP, streaming, video conferencing, file transfers, etc, all happening simultaneously and nary a hiccup.
