Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki MX

It allows us to spin up jobsites on a moment's notice and gives our helpdesk team easy access to see and troubleshoot issues. The ease of routing allows easy clarity into how our network functions and allows for quick troubleshooting. All these things together help bring our environment that used to be only accessible to one person troubleshooting to allow our whole team to look into problems.
  • Routing and VPN concentrator
  • Easy device setup and configuration
  • Easy troubleshooting of client devices
  • Options not exactly where you think they belong
  • Needs more complex routing options available in other Cisco products
  • Routing ports on on appliance status page aren't clickable like switch pages

Cisco Meraki MX provides better management of both inventory and deployment configuration. It's easy to ensure a singular config is used for all similar networks. Adding additional networks or changing on the fly helps when popping up new offices or locations. Purchasing was also easy, and licensing is fairly lax as they allow many different ways to keep equipment licensed.
Cisco Meraki MX provides more functionality and scalability to organizations that are growing than any other product. You can set up new routes as a non-network-focused person in seconds. Cisco Meraki MX is also forgiving in not allowing you to do dumb things that other platforms would let you find out the hard way.
Cisco Meraki MX is suited to quick and fast-paced environments that can change quickly and the need for insight into devices that move around just as much. Being able to for certain know what I'd plugged in on an easy-to-see GUI is super helpful as you pass troubleshooting basics back to the helpdesk.
