#1 Cloud-managed solutions – that all work togetherMeraki offers an extensive portfolio of products. Everything from wireless access points to security appliances and access and distribution switching, VoIP phones, mobility management, SD WAN and video surveillance. Even better, they’re all built to work together to deliver a truly scalable and easy to manage comprehensive solution. There’s no complexity, just high performing connectivity. Leaving you to focus on your digitalisation goals, without the hassle of worrying about operational overheads.
#2 Manage everything from a ‘single pane of glass’ dashboardThe Meraki cloud-based dashboard interface gives you intuitive and centralised management of your network universe. The dashboard features powerful tools that deliver real-time insights on user behaviours, traffic patterns and network events. And makes it easy to find any individual client device, see how users are experiencing the network, monitor network performance and undertake faster problem resolution and troubleshooting.
#3 Simplified supportEverything from software updates to versions and patches are included in the solution and automatically managed and deployed by the Meraki cloud to your defined maintenance window. Indeed, the Cisco Meraki network comes pretty close to running itself, with minimal intervention. All upgrade options for every product are displayed on the Meraki dashboard and administrators control which to schedule and when.
#4 Zero touch deploymentWith Meraki cloud management, initial configuration and deployment is simple easy and repeatable. Products can be added to the dashboard and immediately provisioned without unboxing the hardware. Once powered and connected, all Meraki products automatically search for an internet path, check for any available software updates and fetch any configuration that’s been staged. All of which significant cuts deployment times and costs.
#5 One license for everything!Meraki licenses are sold on a ‘per device, per year’ basis and to keep things simple there’s only one license-renewal data, no matter how many devices you have. The good news is the license also includes lifetime hardware warranty, with next-business-day replacements, unlimited 24×7 technical support and lifetime software, OS and (if applicable) malware/antivirus/intrusion updates. In other words, as long as the licensing is kept current, Meraki fully supports its hardware no matter how old it is. Compared to the cost of buying software support for other brands, Meraki offers significant cost savings over time.
