We're Cisco partners and resellers. When Meraki came out, it was kind of like Cisco routers and stuff, however, they went to the air. Device Management just came out not that long ago. We've been using its analytics pretty much with every deal now. Since lockdown, everybody's got to either bring their own devices or the company has to give them phones. If you can afford this solution, it's worth every dime in terms of what you get out of it. Companies, if they decide to implement the solution, are going to have to make a lot of choices. Do they have the people they feel that they can do this with? Do they need to use part of the analytics? Or not? If they do, then do they know what they're looking for - for example, what trends are they trying to spot? It can get overwhelming. That said, at the end of the day, a company will have a dashboard that they can go into and manipulate if they want to and can change things or just monitor on their own. With the dashboard, you can see what's going on. If you do on-premises, you're also going to have to focus on going to patch and fix and do all the things that need to be done to keep it running smoothly, and you'll need to follow alerts to see if something's up or something like that. The advantage of the cloud is that a lot of this is done for you and you won't have to worry about manual patching, et cetera. I'd rate the solution at a ten out of ten overall. We've been quite happy with the product.
