Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki MS

Cisco Meraki [MS] switches are being used in a part of the organization. They give us first-hand visibility of the state of the LAN network as well as the type of traffic consumed by the connected devices. Very practical when you do not have a lot of IT staff, and you require operational ease.
  • Scalability
  • Quality of service
  • Layer 7 Visibility
  • Handle models that are used as core
  • Umbrella integrations
  • Use for industrial scenarios

  • Centralized management and simplicity of operations: It can be operated by a single person.
  • Operational: Allows updates to be made at times that do not impact the operation and without the need to be physically on-site.
  • Visibility of the most used applications within the organization allows me to take action to avoid consuming bandwidth.
Due to the deployment capacity that they have with the creation of templates, zero-touch implementations can be practically carried out. One of the main benefits is all the assurance that it gives you at the network level without the need to buy an extra license, as is the case with Cisco Enterprise, where you require a DNA Center.
[I chose] Switches Cisco Meraki MS for all the integrations it provides at the platform level and for the network visibility it offers without the need to purchase extra hardware or licensing. Another advantage is the centralized management from a single management point with internet access that allows easy access and network configurations.
Some of the scenarios where Meraki MS Switches are best suited are:
Retail: Great flexibility and integration with APIs
Education: Centralized administration
Hospitality: Allows Integrations with APIs and visibility

Scenarios where I do not recommend it are:
Industrial: When handling IoT or Industry 4.0
Critical Environments: Extreme weather conditions
