Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki Wireless Access Point

We have been using these devices over than 4 years. We decided to try them because cloud management was very attractive for us. So we start to use it for one of our offices and the devices work fine, the performance is good but not the best. Sometimes it's necessary to restart the devices so they work well again. The configuration is very simple and the management is very easy.
  • Excellent cloud management
  • Traffic Control
  • Handle 5 Ghz Frequency
  • Ease of configuration.
  • Can create multiple SSID
  • The APs performance could be better
  • You can't configure them without an internet connection
  • The traffic reports could be better
  • Ease to manage the wireless network of the company
  • Gain visibility about traffic consumption
  • We can connect 5Ghz devices on our network
Meraki offers cloud management, this is very important to us because we did not want more physical infrastructure on our site, and the trend of the market is all on the cloud. So this solution makes sense for what we were looking for. Another advantage of these devices is the price, they are cheaper than other vendors, and Cisco bought them and Cisco usually means good quality, In [summary] these devices are a really good option for wireless network management.
If you dont want on-premise infrastructure for your wireless network this solution is a good option, you can manage the entire company's wireless network remotely, the configuration is easy and simple. But if you are planning to acquire some of these devices you need to check the model of the access points you need based on the number of users that you have. If you choose an incorrect access point maybe you will experiment bad quality of the service and the access points won´t work properly.
