Cisco Meraki is built for scalability. It is very easy to add hardware and new topologies. My only complaint would be that it can be a bit pricey once you get into the Enterprise level product portfolio. I would like to see SM license prices come down the more you buy or some sort of flat rate for large deployments.
Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
It’s scalable up to a point and will scale well from small to a medium business, however, as a business grows and policies get more mature or detailed, you might have to later upgrade to a more appropriate enterprise solution such as MaaS360 or AirWatch. This solution however, will last quite a long tome for a growing business.
Providing that the site has adequate wifi, Meraki SM is able to quickly update OS, install apps, and sync profiles. It is incredibly fast and generally only takes a few seconds for instructions to be sent to the device. I have only given 9 out of 10 as there are sometimes some connectivity issues with older iPads running iOS10 or earlier, despite Meraki's documentation saying that they are compatible.
It is super easy to add users and deploy MDM license on all new devices on the dashboard. It’s also quite simple to personalize the policies from different teams, sites, or apply rules on a certain type of devices versus another. There are many levels to safely allow managers and admins to control the solution.
As Cisco’s endpoint management solution, Cisco Meraki Systems Manager supports a variety of platforms allowing for the diverse ecosystem often found in today’s mobile centric world. The vendor states this places Systems Manager in prime position to alleviate the concerns of security teams in various industries, empower teachers to run their digital classroom, and ease the burden of enterprise IT teams with distributed sites.
