Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki MR Series

We are using MR in our corporate and branch offices to centralize the administration and visibility of network and users behavior. Also, we have hospitality clients who have chosen MR in each guest room to minimize the cabling inside rooms while still delivering all the services they need: WiFi, wired connectivity, IP Telephony, IP TV and security system (panic bottom, geofence, etc)
  • MR allows administrator to get Layer 7 capabilities to ensure user’s secure connectivity.
  • MR activates BLE radius to get the most visibility of customer behavior and integration of other functions.
  • The activation of the licenses should not be right after the order. It would be great if users could activate licenses when they are really going to use the equipment.
  • Meraki could add more PoE ports in MR30H.
  • More services delivered through a single AP.
  • Integration of new platforms with APIs.
Cisco Meraki MR Series offers another level of connectivity. From a ready-to-go installation to the possibility to get a full visibility of your network in the dashboard and for no cost fee. Cisco Meraki MR gives you the option of adding security (layer 7) to end user’s connections and also optimize the troubleshooting process from a physical failure to a logical one. MR family covers any company size with its multiples models. Something important is the lifetime warranty (indoor models) and the firmware updates are included with the license.
Because you have your license activated, you have access to Meraki’s Customer support 7 days of the week, 24 hours of the day. Also you have the warranty of the best suitable APs in case of replacement. Meraki takes care of your network to allow you to get into it softly and confidently.

I prefer to specify where Cisco Meraki MR is recommended because is a great solution in terms of functionality, development, connectivity, administrations, etc. In my case this solution is the best for hotels and big resorts. Meraki has a lot of models which cover you in each space of the hotel (indoor, outdoor, high density, etc). Meraki has a special model for hotels, MR30H. GPON has a solution that permits us to deliver services in the rooms only through a single cable (fiber). With MR30H you only will use a single cable from the IDF to each room. So you get: less power consumption, more space in rack, less switches port used and a best in-room experience.
