"I believe the initial setup was straightforward."

"The solution is easy to use."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward."
"What I liked about these is that they worked. I didn't touch them or do anything with them. They were up and running when I came here. Once they are set up and running, you don't have to worry about them."
"The most valuable features are the multiple types of user groupings and access management."
"Provided reliability and a good price."
"I like the status page Cisco added that shows you the health of the wireless connection."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of deployment."
"Support is not really up to par in quickly addressing issues."
"Having a better dashboard management system that the client can use to access and control their environment would be a nice addition to the product."
"It would be good to integrate with ISE in the future."
"When it comes to switching, Meraki lacks categories of features."
"The biggest pain point is that they limit you through firewall throughput. I understand why they do it, but that really grates me. For instance, for 450 Mbps throughput, you're looking at £800 for a router, whereas if you look at the one gig connection, for some of us are lucky enough to have a gig connection, you could almost be spending £3,000 for the option to have one gig connectivity. That's one of the pain points I've got. I don't mind paying for throughput, but I should at least have the option to be able to update that throughput, maybe through extra licensing or something else. It is crazy expensive to jump through to the next one."
"We haven't had any issues with the solution. We like the way it works. There isn't anything I can think of that makes me worry that it might be lacking in a certain area."
"They could also add some more controls for guest access. For example, when you have a captive portal, it would be nice to limit the amount of time users can stay connected per day. Right now, you can only configure the splash frequency. And you can set the connection for one hour, but you have to use the billing feature."
"Its price could be improved."
"The price could be slightly better, but then again, we negotiate deals every time so the market price isn't really relevant."
"Initially, I liked some of the filtering features, but that's one of the components that we ran into problems with."
