Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki MX

We use Cisco Meraki MX for SDWan. We need to simplify and streamline our WAN connections by moving from expensive MPLS circuits to SDWAN.
  • Simple user interface
  • Cloud based management
  • Affordable purchase price
  • some of the configuration items in the management console don't seem in be in expected location

Yes

Yes

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

Yes

Did implementation of Cisco Meraki MX go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Cisco Meraki MX again?

Yes

  • It is an affordable solution that replace our expensive MPLS
The simplicity of Cisco Meraki MX has allowed my small IT staff, four members, self manage our SDWAN.
We have not run into any issues.
The Cisco Meraki MX devices have worked well in smaller remote office locations. I have used Cisco FTD firewalls in our main data center for firewalling functions instead of the Cisco Meraki MX.
