  • The only negative ROI I can think of is the recurring licensing costs. You are forced to renew licenses each year or the system will no longer function. With other systems this ongoing cost for maintenance is optional.

Why Meraki APs?

  • The biggest return is the time, and money saved, in managing the WiFi solution at my company. Especially with credentials and connecting to WiFi. Before I installed the Meraki, the existing solution was configured with PSK for company users, and guest WiFi which was totally opened to anyone. The solution did not support any security features we needed. Once I installed the Meraki, I was able to set up Radius authentication for corporate users, and user accounts for guest who needed access to the Wifi. The Meraki solution helped us reach PCI compliance.

  • A positive impact is that we spend less (almost no) time dealing with Access Point management.
  • A negative is the annual license renewal. While not currently overly pricey, the AP's are useless if you don't keep your license current, so it is a requirement.

  • We are in education, and our mandate is to provide wireless networking to all students and staff, and Meraki has done that for us.
  • Since we are a school, we don't measure ROI the same way businesses do, but we do have to justify our expenditures, and we have determined that Meraki provides us with very good value for the cost.
  • We have also had a very low failure rate, so we are happy with that too.

  • Meraki products are not cheap, but you get premium hardware and a premium architecture for the money. The flexibility these APs offer mean I'm set for any configuration I may need to make, such as bringing a new SSID online or reshaping traffic flow, all without buying new hardware.
  • Wireless is an afterthought for my users now, as it should be. We are also able to offer our guests a premium wireless experience.
  • Security is unmatched, as I am able to now monitor all wireless devices on my network, see what they are doing, how much bandwidth they are consuming, etc. I can segment traffic by VLAN and even route networks through different WANs. I have unprecedented control and monitoring of my network, all from a single, browser-based dashboard. The experience for the system admin is just as polished and premium as the experience for the user.
  • Meraki frequently adds features and tools to its products, meaning your ROI is constantly advancing.

  • Less training required for supporting the devices, as GUI is intuitive with good help and FAQs.
  • Managing lots of devices is much easier than non Meraki equivalents.
  • The time it takes to deploy a device into production is much quicker than any non Meraki equivalents.

  • Cisco Meraki Wireless APs have cut our troubleshooting time down tremendously with the reporting and configurations its gives us.
  • Being able to reboot an AP from 30 miles away has saved us on gas as well as labor.

  • Cisco Meraki Wireless has served us well in allowing us to divide multiple SSIDs to multiple use cases. The configuration methodology is easy and simple and really reduced a lot of administrative overhead.
  • Cisco Meraki Wireless offers great flexible pricing plans over the support that can save you money through bulk purchase or support licenses. Once Cisco Meraki Wireless is the wireless solution you can see an increased ROI on managed services through a group buy that seems to be industry leading, they seem to have more "flexibility" than Aruba.
  • Cisco Meraki Wireless has saved us money using their reporting features by finding bandwidth hogs, understanding what type of processes it was running, whom and at what IP address, so we could remedy that issue and reduce the overall used bandwidth in the company and balance our demands vs usage.
