Meraki MX appliances

Very happy with system and implementation

Very happy with the overall experience - the system has provided us with improved security as well as better access to internal resources.

Meraki MX appliances

Simplified configuration and high level visibility

We deployed an MX100 in our Datacenter as a concentrator for multiple retail stores. Our retail sites use an MX64. The VPN deployment ability is incredibly easy when connected in the organization. Compared to traditional Cisco hardware it is missing some high level features (EIGRP, OSPF can advertise VPN networks out but not advertise routes into the networks). These are not missed with the easy management and visibility gained.

Meraki Simplifies Network Management

Working with Cisco Meraki has been great. They have a great sales staff and have been very helpful with getting their products implemented

Meraki MX appliances

Simple to use and straightforward deployments for specific use cases.

Like all Meraki products, the MX is very simple to configure and support even with limited network experience; the services it provides are broad enough to fit many use cases. Reporting capabilites are satisfactory and the platform will integrate with common network management tools. However, the MX series is not a very flexible product so it likely not appropriate with more advanced use cases often found in larger enterprises. The device is best used for a specific set of purposes where the capabilities have been confirmed through research and testing.

OpenDNS Umbrella

Implementation is easy, Support is good. Be tough in price negotiations.

The overall experience has been positive. I had some issues early on dealing with the sales team, but once they realized that I would go to another vendor, we were able to easily negotiate a favorable price. The implementation team was good. This team was easy to work with, and helped us understand our options. The advice given by this team was very good and made our job of implementing this tool quick and easy. The technical support has been very good. We have been able to solve our problems within one hour of the call. One issue that we have had, is that one of the Open DNS servers that we setup has had intermittent problems. We have found that a reboot to this server fixes the problem. Tech support has not been able to help with this issue.

OpenDNS Umbrella

Can be used as a standalone solution, or as a backup to your current application.

Easy to implement and configure. Support is excellent.

Meraki MX appliances

Implementation was easy, needs more insight

The application does its job, I wish there was more insight into operations

Meraki MX appliances

Easiest deployment for many small sites. 500 sites deployed in 6 months!

Having worked with Meraki for 4 years, I can speak plainly that the organization has a stellar product, service and value for our organization. They have worked to hear our feedback, implement changes, and to be willing to make concessions as needed. The product they supply is superior to anything else we piloted.

Easy implementation across the Enterprise with impeccable Technical Support

Having embarked on my 20th year in IT, I have never come across such FANTASTIC Technical Support with any product (software or hardware related). We chose Meraki because it allowed our very lean IT staff to manage 18 locations that span three States. Meraki was incredible from day one with respect to planning the design and all through the implementation. Any follow up calls that have been needed are treated with the utmost priority; no problem is too small.
