Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki MR

Some of our offices are running on a Meraki infrastructure (MX, MS, MR, MV, SM), and, of course, on Meraki MR products to manage Wi-Fi. As we are a Cisco partner and Fortinet partner, we rely on both infrastructures depending of the offices to be able to stay up to date on both technologies and be able to demo both solutions to our customers.
  • Cloud based solution.
  • One single pane of glass to manage everything.
  • Easy to use/configure dashboard.
  • APIs and a lot of third party solutions to add on.
  • Provide basic analytics but would be nice to have more specific details built-in the solution (just like some 3rd parties do).
  • More expensive than other comparable solutions.
  • Stability.
  • Excellent reach.
  • Security.
  • Meraki products have lifetime warranty. So as long as you pay your license, your hardware will be replace if needed.
  • Sometimes more expensive upfront, but interesting TCO on the long term.
Meraki MR are certainly one of the good products on the market. The ease of use, configuration from the dashboard and the rollout are certainly the main differentiators of Meraki. The lifetime warranty of MR (not outdoor models) is also a great advantage.
But, the licenses to pay as long as you use the product may discourage some buyers (vs Fortinet for example).

Do you think Cisco Meraki MR delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Cisco Meraki MR's feature set?


Did Cisco Meraki MR live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Cisco Meraki MR go as expected?


Would you buy Cisco Meraki MR again?


Meraki has a great portfolio of MR devices. So can adapt and find the right product to pretty much every environment, from basic Wi-Fi needs to pretty long outdoor reach. As the price can quickly rise for important rollout, it is important to work with a Cisco partner and or your Cisco AM directly to make sure to get the appropriate discount levels for your project, otherwise, you may find the solution too expensive.
