"Great architecturally based dashboard and the solution is accessible from anywhere."
"Meraki is a decent solution for a small company, and we use it in a pretty typical way. We need Teams and Zoom to work, and we need a high level of security because we want our business to remain confidential."
"It is cloud-based. It has a GUI rather than a command line, and it just works."
"The product has been very stable over the years."
"The interface is excellent. We've been really happy with it."
"The interface makes it easy to manage."
"The most valuable thing to me is the stability of the product."
"I have found it to be stable."
"Has an extremely good feature set."
"If you compare wired versus wireless, it's convenient. You don't need to have one place for connectivity. You can move around and it's easier. Sometimes it's a hassle to work with wires, which is why wireless is so convenient."
"The triangulation feature can be used to determine where a person is in relation to the access point."
"The cost is the most valuable aspect of this solution."
"Meraki is still very much a small office type of solution. It is not a fit for large enterprise networks, as it doesn't have tunneling functionalities."
"If there are advanced features that you can have enabled, they should allow users access to that in an easier manner."
"It would be better if they enable full integration with Cisco's cloud-based network in the next release."
"We're are not fully utilizing the features of Cisco Meraki Wireless LAN to know a more in-depth analysis of what areas need to be improved. However, the security could improve. It would be a benefit to be able to lock out particular clients that are trying to connect from outside the building."
"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."
"I would like to see integration with sensors."
"They're great. If there's anything that they need to change, it is just simplifying the site to which you go to make changes on the admin side."
"Concern when there are a number of concurrent users."
"There seems to be different versions of standards used in the wireless access points. In the future, it would be helpful if the solution could come up with some kind of universal standard for all devices and all access points."
"The user experience should be improved. It's not user-friendly."
"The inter-functionality with other vendors was a negative for us."
