Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki Wireless Access Point

Cisco Meraki Wireless Access Points are being used throughout all 10+ of our different site locations with over 5,000 users a day on the APs combined. Currently we have almost 1 AP in every room due to 30 + devices per room needing wifi connection. The APs allow us to set up guest sign-on, use air marshall to attack rogue hotspots from students and we are able to turn on different SSIDs to each AP if we need to.
  • The Cisco Access points are great at load balancing for us. When the AP has too many devices it will kick one off however another AP next to it will pick it up.
  • The guest splash sponsor login works perfectly. Guests have to send an email to our staff and then they get approved.
  • The ability to reboot the AP from the office is actually a big deal for us due to the distance from us to the farthest location we support as it can take 30 minutes one way.
  • I would like to see Cisco Meraki APs be able to connect with the Chromebooks so that we may see which user is active on an AP.
  • I would like to view traffic on an AP after 30 days however Cisco does not store after 30 days.
  • Cisco Meraki Wireless APs have cut our troubleshooting time down tremendously with the reporting and configurations its gives us.
  • Being able to reboot an AP from 30 miles away has saved us on gas as well as labor.
Cisco Meraki Access Points are very well suited for a large business where you have a large area to cover. It could be one building with multiple floors or a number of buildings all spread out. Due to the cost of the equipment and the licensing I do not recommend the APs to a small business.
