Meraki MX appliances

Implementing Cisco Meraki gear was one of the best IT decisions I've ever made

Having previously replaced all our network gear with Meraki and then Cisco Meraki after they were acquired by Cisco, when it came time to implement new security appliances and begin the process of opening new branch offices, going back to Cisco Meraki was a no-brainer. It now takes me less than five minutes to have a new branch office fully connected to our network once they have an Internet connection and it doesn't even require a static IP address. The feature set is constantly expanding and the automatic firmware updates save me and my staff many hours of work and lost sleep doing late night updates. I couldn't be happier with the equipment, their support and the fact that it has reduced my annual maintenance costs by more than two-thirds has been a godsend.

Implementation and setup of Meraki MX appliances

Configuration and deployment of the Meraki MX appliances was a simple. the ability to configure have a person in another city and state plug it in was flawless. only issue was the ability to configure a static ip for the internet connection could not be done remotely. So i had to unbox it.. configure the static ip and then ship it. once it came online i was able to configure the rest remotely.

Replace MPLS with site to site VPN.

We love the easy VPN feature. We replaced our MPLS and replaced it with just DIA.

ASA 5500-X Series

Cisco Support is terrible if you are not a CCNE

I purchased an ASA5516-x with Firepower services several months ago, I have the ASA installed but I still have not been able to download the Firepower Management Console. Cisco and my 3rd party vendor have had one issue after another. Have had several different people with Cisco trying to help and no one talks to each, I keep having to send the same info over and over again, and they keep asking me technical questions that I don't know.
