Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Routers

  • Cisco NCS 5500 Series
  • Meraki MX
Cisco Routers are being used across the whole organization in the multiple locations of the hospital. They help establish a secure and efficient pipeline of wifi connection for both our staff, patients, and families. Pushing forward on a mobile learning strategy, our network is helping my team and department determine where, when, and how our staff is accessing educational resources. Analysis of traffic patterns are helping us determine infrastructure needs and laying a foundation for our internal device expansion.
  • Excellent monitoring capabilities to track usage and map traffic.
  • Top tier mesh networking allows use to expand our network capabilities into low signal areas.
  • High traffic load bearing bands allow for excellent visitor usage.
  • Pricing
  • Our routers are already outdated, even having been installed within the last 2 years
  • I was using Meraki as a test environment before being acquired by Cisco.
  • Allows us to offer free WiFi for our visitors, patients, families, and staff on an equal performance plane.
  • Allows us to scale access and traffic based on usage, helping our staff maintain efficiency
  • This acts a major component to our mobile expansion strategy allowing development anytime anywhere
Compatibly wasn’t as important as we opted to go all in on Cisco products. We knew from experience within particular departments that the routers already in place were fully compatible with devices that we had on had. Some of our older mobile devices will require upgrades as we upgrade our network in the future, but for now, all is in sync.
Data security is of the utmost importance to our organization. Securing our guests’ information is paramount to our interest. Cisco’s technology allows to accomplish that goal.
Cisco Routers have performed a step above Juniper and just as innovative as Aerohive.
Cisco acquired Meraki but their reputation for quality is what eventually won over.
Cisco Routers are perfect for large scale enterprise environments where mesh networking is a great benefit. Cisco helps us determine traffic patterns and network loads that inform our infrastructure expansions. Their equipment might not be as appropriate for small business, especially in cases where the business is not granting wifi access to guests and/or staff [that] are less likely to move across multiple access points.
