CLOUD MANAGED NETWORKS POWERED BY CISCO MERAKI

Meraki is Cisco’s network-as-a-service solution, comprising hardware, software and cloud services. The Cisco Meraki product set has been designed from the ground up to provide an intuitive interface to a Cloud managed network.

A scalable solution for LAN, wireless LAN and secure connectivity within and/or between site(s), Meraki’s standard architecture supports integrated end-to-end network visibility. This detail combined with fine control of applications, users and client devices simplifies mobile device management, application control and security.

The features of Meraki can be used, for example, to implement bring your own device (BYOD) policies in the workplace. Meraki enables the network administrator to view a detailed breakdown of web usage per client, whether the clients are using iOS, Android, Mac or Windows devices.


SINGLE MANAGEMENT DASHBOARD

The dashboard is centrally and securely managed via the web. It provides an integrated view and enables configuration and real-time reporting of the network. Network deployment and operations are therefore simplified for busy IT staff.

REDUCED COST OF OWNERSHIP

The intuitive Meraki dashboard provides simple built-in visibility and control of the network, when compared with the cost and complexity associated with a traditional network infrastructure – both during setup and on an ongoing basis.

SUBSCRIPTION COST MODEL

The hardware, software and single management license with 24/7 enterprise technical support also includes over-the-web upgrades. This cost-effective operational expenditure simplifies the network budget.
