Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Meraki Wireless Access Point

We were looking to upgrade from the Cisco Aironet Access points in two of our office locations and replaced 20 Cisco APs with 10 Meraki APs. The Meraki's provide much faster coverage and network speeds. The Meraki Cloud Dashboard is easy to use—administration, firmware upgrades, and setup were a breeze. Very happy with the decision; Meraki support is also excellent.
  • Wider coverage
  • Faster network speeds
  • Single dashboard management
  • Additional user training
  • Meraki cloud dashboard
  • Fast network speeds
  • Wider network coverage
  • IT Admins really like managing the Merakis—set and forget.
  • Alerts when devices or network goes down is great, which we never had previously.
  • No more users complaining of slow network speeds on WiFi.
Meraki Wireless Access Points were superior to Cisco Aironets:
Cloud-based dashboard for managing all Meraki devices.
Alerts when devices or network is impacted.
Easy deployment of Firmware upgrades.
Faster network speeds.
Wider network coverage.
Required less number of Access Points compared to Cisco Aironet.

I would recommend Cisco Meraki Wireless Access Points to organizations of all sizes (small to large) and also ones with multiple locations. Meraki cloud dashboard can manage all devices including Meraki access points, Meraki switches, Meraki firewalls etc. Being cloud based its easy to access and integrates with most SSO vendors for added security.
