What are the business benefits of Cisco Meraki?

 1: All Inclusive License Costs

One Cloud management license is required per device which are available over 3,5,7 or a 10-year duration and more importantly, each product comes with a lifetime guarantee. You simply pay for the hardware and ongoing license cost.

2: Topology Mapping

Within the centralised dashboard you have full visibility of your network via the comprehensive topology map which shows you the exact location of every Meraki product installed on the network. It also shows you specific locations of any errors and suggests troubleshooting tips.

3: Analytics and Intelligence

The inbuilt analytics and intelligence enables your Network Manager to have full visibility of the Wi-Fi network usage from drilling down to a specific user’s browsing activity to making restrictions when the network becomes overloaded. This flexibility promotes efficiency, enables performance monitoring and improves productivity in the workplace.

4: Easily Managed

The easy to use dashboard enables you to control all of your Cisco Meraki devices from one place and the more devices you have, the more detailed the view on the dashboard is.

As your business grows or changes, your Cisco Meraki network can be augmented to easily accommodate this.

5: Optimum Security

Cisco Meraki products come out of the box with Layer 7 visibility technology which was previously available only through costly overlay appliances, is included in Cisco Meraki switches at no additional cost.

Air Marshal is a wireless intrusion prevention solution that is fully integrated into every Cisco Meraki Access Point. Air Marshal looks for and neutralises wireless threats across the network, delivering a state of the art protection that is not only flexible but intuitive.

6: Monitoring and reporting

With in-built application visibility, real-time web diagnostics, monitoring and reporting alongside multi-site management features, Cisco Meraki solutions are scalable from mid-market requirement to enterprise, international scale businesses.

The automatic monitoring and alerts enable the majority of faults to be quickly identified and resolved via the Cloud dashboard without the need to send a Consultant to site, saving time and money on maintenance visits that other solutions will require.

7: Frequent Updates

Cisco Meraki products are continually updated with patches and firmware updates and new features are rolled out each quarter for no additional cost.

8: Traffic Shaping

Easily control bandwidth and traffic usage via the centralised dashboard and quickly identify the sources slowing down the network. Admin users can set application specific policies and rules that disallow the use of certain applications and websites permanently or for a specific time period.

9: Quickly Deployed

All Cisco Meraki products can be technically configured off-site before they are installed. So, once you come to install them, they just need to be connected and they are good to go. This avoids any unnecessary disruption and downtime.
